The 148th birth anniversary of founder of Harikathaganam in Andhra Pradesh, Sri Adibhatla Narayanadasavaryulu was celebrated by TTD-run Sri Venkateswara College of Music and Dance, at Mahathi auditorium in Tirupati on Monday.

 On the occasion TTD EO LV Subramanyam said, Adibhatla pioneered the art of Harikathaganam.

 Fusing realms of poetry, music and dance, Adibhatla created a new art form called Harikathaganam with which he was able to educate and entertain society about the vast wisdom hidden in Hindu mythology.

 JEO K Srinivasa Raju called upon students of Harikathaganam to follow footsteps of Adibhatla and propagate the richness of Hindu Sanatana Dharma among the general public, through the media of Harikathaganam.

 Presiding over the function, director of TTD Annamacharya project Dr Medasani Mohan said Adibhatla was a multi-faceted personality and had rendered Harikatha by amalgamating literature, music and dance, which formed a visual treat.

 He appreciated the efforts of SV College of Music and Dance for paying tributes to the artist, who is popularly known as Sangeetha Sahitya Sarvabhouma.

 Subramanyam released a book titled Savithra Charithramu written by Adibhatla.
