Ottan Thullal (Garuda Garva Bhangam)

The DVD on Ottan Thullal from Invis Multimedia has Kalamandalam Geethanandan performing Garuda Garva Bhangam or the vanquishing of Garuda’s arrogance. As per the Hindu mythology, Garuda is a huge eagle and the vehicle of Lord Vishnu.

Ottan Thullal owes its genesis to Kunchan Nambair, who is well known for his satirical verses. This 400-year-old performing art form of Kerala is a solo dance with themes taken from the puranas (mythologies) and the performer skilfully links them to aspects of modern day life, often taking a dig at the shortcomings of the society. In Ottan Thullal, the performer sings and dances to the accompanying music rendered by cymbals and drum. The performer also has the freedom to devise and combine humour and satire while performing. Ottan Thullal’s mass appeal is further accentuated by the fact that its narration is in simple Malayalam, unlike Sanskrit, which is the norm for other classical dance forms. And so is its costume and style of singing, making Ottan Thullal dearer to the public.

Kalamandalam Geethanandan

Kalamandalam Geethanandan is an ardent practitioner of Ottan Thullal and a master performer par excellence. His performance diligently portrays the vibrant charm of Ottan Thullal. He is also a senior faculty member of Kerala Kalamandalam at Thrissur, the cultural capital of Kerala, which is a premier centre for performing arts in Kerala.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
