Kutrala Kuravanji is a celebrated Tamil poem composed circa 1718 by Tirikkuda Rasappa Kavirayar. This much revered literary text is going to be brought to life by Bhaskar’s Arts Academy in the form of a dance-drama production.

It tells the story of Princess Vasanthavalli who has fallen deeply in love with Kutralanathar, the presiding deity of the temple in Kutralam. A gypsy woman (Kurathi) finds her way to the palace and through some astute observations wins over the pining Princess. She proceeds to “read” the Princess’ palm and foresees a grand wedding of the Princess and the one who has stolen her heart. The overjoyed Princess showers the kurathi with precious gifts.
