I am privileged to translate this master piece of Sri. Vishnubhatla Subramanyeshwaram folk play Sarangadhara of Telugu into English. I took the plot of the story and did some of the modifications to the final acts of the play. It is not an imitation of the Telugu play. It is a free translation.Sarangadhara is a romantic and pathos throughout of it. The play is widely staged in the nook and corner of the rural Telangana. Due to cinema and TV the dramatic art slowly defamed.
It is not an exaggeration to say, the present generation of the rural folk once who entertained the dramatic art never had a glance at it, it is losing it fame and diminishing. If it has gone few more years the drama may extinct from the rural scene. Once it is glorified with its name and fame. The present generation came to know about it in the text books only. The dramatic art is the living fossil to exhibit the ancient culture.
