The 149th birth anniversary of Sri Adibhatla Narayanadasavaryulu, founder of Harikatha Ganam in AP, was celebrated grandly by TTD-run Sri Venkateswara College of Music and Dance at Mahathi Auditorium in Tirupati on Sunday.

TTD Joint Executive Officer, K S Sreenivasa Raju was the chief guest and said Adibhatla pioneered in the art of Harikatha Parayanam and became the pride of Telugus.

“Fusing the realms of poetry, music and dance, he created a new art form called Harikatha which educated and entertained society about the Hindu mythology,’’ Raju said.

The JEO called upon the students of the Harikatha fraternity to follow the footsteps of Adibhatla and propagate the richness of Hindu Sanatana Dharma.

Presiding over the function, former secretary of HDPP H S Brahmananda said Adibhatla was a multi-faceted personality. He rendered the Harikatha by rightly applying sahitya, music and dance thus forming a visual treat.

He appreciated the SV College of Music and Dance for paying tributes to the great artist, who was popularly also known as Sangitha Sahitya Sarvabhouma, by organising the programme.

Later JEO, TTD released a book titled ‘Draupadi Manasamrakshanamu’ written by Sri Deekshitha Dasu.

Tirumala Tirupati Devasthnams Deputy EO Siva Reddy, CAO Sesha Sailendra, PO of Sri Venkateswara Higher Vedic Studies Dr Akella Vibhishana Sarma, Music and Dance College principal C Prabhavati, Venkatachala Sastry and others were present on the occasion.
