Day-2 of B.V. Karanth College Yuva Rangotsava witnessed the staging of the play ‘Adhvanapura’ by students of JSS Women’s College at Bhoomigeetha auditorium in Rangayana premises here yesterday.

The play is about a place called Adhwanapura. Though the play was filled with comedy, it ended with a message that ‘too much of greed is too bad.’ The play starts with a king who wants to get things done in a click of a button. He has a machine through which he looks into the administration of his kingdom and also enjoys the pleasure of sitting in one place.

He has two ministers who hatch a plan to assassinate the king to take over the administration and as well as the machine. The ministers succeed in killing the king, but they fail to take over the machine as they themselves are confused as to who has to take over the machine. Finally, the machine does not go to anyone.

Students of JSS Women’s College have done well in their attempt to send a message to the audience about what greed can do to a person. Students who enacted the play have been well trained by the Arun Kumar, the director of play.

The play written by H. Dundiraj was well adapted on the stage by the students. The audience were taken on a laughter ride through the comedy punches delivered by the students.

Actor Arun Sagar of Big Boss-fame was the chief guest for yesterday’s event. He watched the entire play and expressed his happiness over the efforts put in by both students and Rangayana. Later, students were seen clicking photographs with Arun Sagar to which the actor obliged.

Today’s Rangotsava will feature ‘Punjabina Maate’ by students Maharani’s Science College. The play will be staged at Bhoomigeethe at 3.30 pm and 6.30 pm. Tickets are priced at Rs. 15 for students and Rs. 30 for others.
