Maanini is a story performance which will present the life of Krishna in a 90-minute capsule. The story is laid out through the eyes of the strong resilient yet tender and giving women who played a pivotal role in Krishna’s life. Each played their part and helped him to reach his message to the world.

Maanini is much more than storytelling. It is presented as an interesting mix of dance abhinaya music drama poetry and storytelling. Each of these is used to enhance the story and bring out its essence effectively. Maanini will effortlessly engage you and keep your thoughts engaged on these stories long after it has ended.

The program is brought to you by an inspired group of 4 strong woman storytellers who have invested their creativity into making this possible.

Tathaastu is a word that one often comes across in Indian mythology; it is a word that filled the listener with glee or terror, depending on who the listener war. You see, Tathaastu (So be it) was the word with which the Gods and Goddesses of India sealed the boon granting process.
