Subhasthitham by Narasimhacharis

This year the Narasimhacharis are presenting Subhaashitham-(Eternal Words of Wisdom), an engrossing thematic presentation based on the Panchatantra, Jataka stories, Thirukkural and the treasure house of Indian folklore, in the classical Bharatanatyam idiom. The Charis have worked with a team of over fifty talented musicians, dancers and technicians to present these simple stories, which impart valuable life lessons and at once entertain and educate the young and old alike.

This show was held on Saturday, December 1, 2007 at The Music Academy, Chennai . The main sponsor of this production is Nalli (Nalli Chinnasami Chetty). Padma Vibhushan Dr. M. Balamuralikrishna was the guest of honour and launched Rasoham, an organization in pursuit of artistic excellence (www.rasoham.in), established by Lavanya and Lasya, the daughters and disciples of the Narasimhacharis. Well-known TV personality Vijay Adiraj is the Master of Ceremonies.

This year, the foundation has ticketed the show with the intention of donating a part of the proceeds to RASA, an organization that uses art to rehabilitate differently-abled children. The proceeds contributed by the Madras Metro Round Table 95 will go to RASA. A portion of the balcony has been ear-marked for school children. Individuals and organisations have also volunteered to sponsor 366 balcony tickets for under-privileged children.
