Narakasuravadham (Killing of Naraka the asura)

Story Play (Attakkatha): 


Narakasuravadham is an kathakali story play authored by Maharaja Karthikathirunal Rama Varma. This story is based on the chapter 59 of Srimabhagavatam Dasamaskandham North.

Changes from the story of Bhagavatam

1. The character Nakratundi is a work of artisan. So there is nothing in the original story to say that Nakratundi's ascension to heaven and the triumph of Jayantan stereotypes. The narrator may have created a reason for the demon to invade and conquer the world.
2. The conflict between Vivid and Garudan in the 10th scene is not in the original story.
3. Hellfire also differs from the story of fortune-telling. While Bhagavatam was fighting the Garuda with the weapon of Shul and Shakti, the Lord Krishna said that Narakasura was riding on an elephant and was using the Chakra weapon. The nature of the story is described here.

Features in the stage

First type kathi (small narakasuran), first lady (simple),
It is a good story for first-class charcoal (Nakratundi) roles and other medium-sized green, beard, polka dot and cowardly roles.
1. The second scene, consisting of Indra's sarcophagus and the dagger of goddesses, is symmetrical and beautiful.
2. The part of Lalita in the fourth scene is very important for her appearance and appearance.
3. The small karakasura part, which contains the usual dance form called 'Kekiyata', and the atomic elements such as 'Valarvarvarna', 'Padappurappadu' and 'Heaven vijayam', is unique.

The story line

The story begins with the first scene in which Krishna and his wives get together. In the second scene, Devendran meets the devotees at Nandanadyana.In scene three, Nakratundi, a ruthless monster who enters the Goddess at the behest of the Narakasura, takes away the Devas. In the fourth scene, Nakratundi, who is seduced by Jayantha, the son of Indra, on the way, approaches the Janta with a beautiful face, disguises the Heavenly Women, and accepts him as his wife and promises to have sex with her immediately. Jayanthan refuses her request saying that he will not marry without his father's orders. Angered that his wishes were not fulfilled, Nakraundi tries to take Jayanthan by force, dressing himself. Jayanthan cuts off her carnatic nappies.

In Scene 5, Jayanthan tells Indra what happened. In scene 6, Narakasuran, the son of Bhumi, who received astronomy from Lord Vishnu and possessed divine powers of extraordinary powers, enjoys the dawn of his royal palace at Pragya Jyothipuram. Nakratundi, who suddenly hears a loud scream and tears up the blood from the severed limbs and inquires as to the cause of the infernal, informs him of the happenings. Instead of mutilating his kinka, Bhomasura enters heaven.
In Scene 7, the fox ascends to heaven and summons Devendra, who defeats Indra in battle. Subsequently, the infernal conquers Airavata and plunders the goddesses of the goddess Aditi. Indra, who had been defeated by the demon in the scene, reached Dwarakapuri and informed Krishna about the evil deeds of Narakasura. Lord Krishna sends Devendra to calm him down knowing that he will kill the hell.
In scene nine, Lord Krishna remembers Garuda and sets out for the hellfire. Lord Krishna is on his way to Pragya Jyothipuram in the true truth.
In Scene 10, Garuda directly defeats Vividan, the tyrant's guardian. Murasuran, the commander of the Narakasura, confronts Lord Krishna, who entered the Pragya astrology with the sound of Panchajanam. Lord Krishna murders Moran.
At the eleventh scene, a kinka comes to announce the death of Muran.
In scene twelve, the demon comes to fight with Lord Krishna. When Krishna falls in battle, Garuda confronts Narakasura. Armored Garudon falls to the ground. Satyabhama gets up and bows his bow and arrows and shoots Lord Krishna against him. The Utukanda necromancer abdicates arms — especially neuroanatomy. At that time Lord Krishna jumps up and puts on the chakra. The legendary Narakasura worships his parents Mahavishnu and Bhoomi Devi, Lord Krishna and Satyabhama, and shows them the neck. Lord Krishna blesses the Hell with his left hand, with his right hand clasped in the wheel. Right, conical, and flowery.
Krishna then decides to rule over the son of hell, Bhagadatan, as king of Pragya Jyotisha, and to give Indra and other gods and goddesses such as Aditi's kundallas to complete the story.
The second version of Vellinenzi Achuthan Kutty's Kathakalipadam is written by Kaplingad Namboodiri.

History of the Narasakura

Hiranyaksha, the world-conquering monster, once depicted the earth goddess as a symbolic figure, and went to Sheol. Then, having come into contact with Hiranyaksha's horn, the earth conceived and gave birth to a great demon. The infant is the infant. Mahavishnu, who made a sharp incarnation in response to the requests of Varun and his Brahmanical deities, brought back the earth from Sheol by killing Hiranyaksha. Then the goddess Bhoomi pleaded with God to save her son, who was born of impurity. Lord Vishnu gave the Divine Astronomy to the Hell and blessed him that no one could kill you as long as it was in his hands. Then the young Bhauman was brought up by the mythical ruler Janaka Maharaja. As he grew older, the hell left the myth, saying, "Being parasitic doesn't fit my personality." Later, as a result of his penance on the Goddess, making him a boon, and organizing a great monster, Narakasura conquered many kingdoms and established himself on the throne. Bhomasura ruled as a charity emperor, trembling all three worlds, making Pragya astrology the capital. Once, he raped Kesaru, the daughter of Thrasthva. More than sixteen thousand female and female divine human beings were made into hell wives. They were taken into custody at Oudacam in Mount Mani. Pragya Jyotipuram is protected by mountains, surges, water, fire, and air, as well as six thousand dwarfs with swords attached, difficult to cut, and tied to the beak. The four gates of Puri are guarded by the ten sons of the Narakasura, and by the fearsome demons of Hayagrivan, Nisunda, Panchanandan and Muran. They did not dare to enter the Pragya Jyotishpuri as they were on their way to the Devayana.
