Yakshagana

It was usual journey back home from office. Frankly speaking I don’t know the exact route our cab driver takes. I spend those precious time in catching some sleep (sometimes even the driver wakes me up at my drop-off point). Last thursday, while returning I was awakened by loud drumming sound and was happy to find that there was a “Yakshagana” play at Shankaramata (Basavanagudi).
I had seen many plays on TV, but never had a chance to watch it live. As soon as I reached home, just grabbed my camera and rushed back to venue. It was great experience to watch it. The plays were enacted by “Sri Mahalingeshwara Pravasi Yakshagana Mandali” from Puttur.
