Dasamahavidya – Nothing I’ve seen

Arhhhhhhhhhhhhh……

A loud shrieking voice….

My girlfriend closed her face, she could not watch it. I sat there, awe-struck and totally absorbed. I do not even want to blink as I fear I might miss some precious moments. One by one, absolutely stunning piece of magic in the form of dance began to unfold in the center stage.

I never do this. I’ve never written an article to promote anything. A lot of people approach me to promote their shit.I don’t really attend events where I’m called in to serve a specific purpose. I was neither invited nor informed about this event. But something inside me, insisted that I should attend this, and by forcing one of my family friend (who was part of it),I booked the tickets. And blessed I’m, that I was able to attend Dasamahavidya, a performance that I will never forget in my life.

This performance was beyond outstanding. I have no reason to thanggeran anyone out there, so you can be sure that what I’m saying is what I felt, truly. I don’t really care about how others felt, but for me, it has left such an impact that I’m ‘forced’ to write an article dedicated to this bone-chilling stage play. I’ll have to warn you in advance that no amount of words could really describe what I saw out there. Dasamahavidya is basically a stage performance and here’s a light synopsis….

“The feminine energy is seen as outcast, sex symbol and the weak embodiment …but she is not someone that anyone to mess with…A woman is full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture, transform and destroy.

This is a story of 10 women ….. A single mother, a courageous lady, a teacher, an artist, a savior, the dutiful one, a rape victim, an entrepreneur, the street dweller and a lawyer…There is Shakti in each woman. Do you see it in your mortal eyes? She is the every woman that we pass by daily… A production that revolves around 10 women and their life. It is in fact, the facets of Shakti manifested in women herself…”

The story basically revolved around a young girl in her growing up years, going through multiple stages of life, and the challenges that she was facing while living in this Kaliyuga. It was a musical-dance-drama.

The music was absolutely engaging, kept me focused. The acting during the stage play was absolutely hilarious and serious at the same time. The dance in between to showcase each of the 10 Sakthis within a woman, that was the moment. I’m a big fan of Bharatam and classical dance, and what I saw satisfied my lust. My lust to watch a truly passionate performance. Each and every performer displayed their best ability. They were so passionate about what they were projecting, that not even once I could feel any flaws in their performance. This was not about the money; they were so obsessed with their characters that they look almost possessed in spiritual ecstasy. It was my first stage play, and it’s the highest I’ve paid to watch any performance. My tickets were a total of RM 160. Was it worth it?

Absolutely. This was the best RM 160 I’ve spent.

Just look at her expression.

I’m glad that the organizers of the event showed full respect for their art. None of them did anything to thanggeran anyone out there. Usually VIP’s who have the money but are fucking useless to the society are invited and buttered up all over so that the organizers would get future support. It was indeed encouraging to see that the man behind this, Ravi Shanker did not succumb to anything but to his own passion.

The saddest part was the number of empty seats that I saw. It was indeed very discouraging, at least personally for me. This show deserves full house every single time.

I’ve been to many events, and I’ve seen personally how local artist and performers who are not involved get special privileges and so on. Some of the events even get delayed for few hours waiting for the so called VIPs.

Here comes a general advice…

To most of the Velle Illathe Puluthis with nothing but money and old album you did in 1990’s out there, who claim yourself as Very Important Person, please be reminded that your jama is not made of gold. If the event starts at 8, freaking be there at 8. And pay for the tickets. Up to this day, I’ve refused any event that does not require me to pay, because that simply doesn’t make sense. If you’re not involved directly in the production or development of those events, mudikite just pay. Funny how these fellows whom don’t want their music or movie to be pirated don’t feel guilty warming up those seats without paying anything. This goes generally for most of the events I’ve attended and seen with my own eyes. If someone invites you for their event,  don’t use your influence or popularity.  Basically you don’t deserve any credit for their hardwork, in simple terms you’re not really a VERY FUCKING IMPORTANT PERSON.

All in all, I personally consider myself blessed to see such an outstanding soul enlightening performance. It scarred me deep; positively. This was indeed something I’ve never seen…

Dasamahavitya…as intoxicating as drugs.
