Neenaanaadre Naaneenena

Neenaanaadre Naaneenena (in Kannada) translates to – “If you are me, then am I you?“. Its a Kannada version of William Shakespeare’s “Comedy of Errors“. Scripted by S. Surendranath in Kannada on the same theme with a slight change in characters.

Happened to watch the drama ‘Neenaanaadre Naaneenena’ in Rangashankara yesterday. A total laughter riot for complete 2 hours – one obsessed to detective novels, other with Shayars, anohter is a deaf, fourth sings a song with every dailogue. Wonderful performance by Srinvas Prabhu, Sihikahi Chandru, Jahangir and others. Would love to wahtc it again.

To add to this was company of taleneted Mukta balaga members – Pransesh Sir, Usha, Veena, Girish, Sundar. And Bellur RK and Vijay just dropped in to meet us before the show.

All in all, it was wonderful evening spent @ Rangashankar.

Varanga, a jain pilgrimage is approximately 75 KMs from Mangalore and 45-50 minutes journey from Karkala. It’s a small village well known for the jain temple (basadi) which is in the middle of a pond. The basadi is called as ‘Kere Basadi’. The basadi is also a chaturmukha basadi similar to the one in Karkala. On all the four sides of the basadi statue of 22nd Thirthankara Neminatha, is established. Only option to reach the basadi is by boat – they charge a nominal fee of Rs. 2 per person for the trip.
