Manchana borrowed the theme from "Viddhasala Bhanjika," a ninth century play of Rajashekhara. Besides deviating from the original in several places, Manchana has narrated twenty-two interesting stories not found in the original. Perhaps some of them were popular in his day in the Telugu country.
In our adaptation, slight changes have been made in the narration for the sake of dramatic effect and continuity.
