January 22, 2024

Mangaluru: Yaksha Rangayana Karkala, in association with St Aloysius College {Autonomous}, Mangalore, Ranga Adhyayana Kendra, St Aloysius College, and Journey Theater (R), Mangaluru, staged the Sumanasa Troupe Play “Neralillada Manushyaru” on January 19, 2024, in L.C.R.I. Hall.

The program was hosted by Mr. S. Mahesh Kumar, Assistant Commissioner of Police, Mangaluru, who inaugurated the play by knocking on the ‘Nagari’. Ms Poornima, Special Duty Officer of Yaksha Rangayana, welcomed the guests and gave the introductory speech.

Shri S. Mahesh Kumar, in his guest speech, said that drama is an art, that through art, mental health can be progressed towards Sattva, and spoke about the importance of theater art.

Rev. Dr. Praveen Martis SJ, Principal, St. Aloysius College (Autonomous), Mangalore, presided over the program and said how theater has had a positive impact on society.

Based on Jean-Paul Sartre’s French play, ‘Men without Shadows’ (Neralillada Manushyaru), it sheds light on the mind-boggling dilemmas of the soldiers of the French Resistance during World War II. Satreya’s humanitarian thoughts are firmly rooted in this play, which makes us think and melts the mind. It motivates us to raise our voices against the evils of society.

Arjun Acharya, Journey Theater Group (R) Mangalore, Praveen G. Kodavoor, and Sumanasa Kodavoor (R) Udupi were present in the program.
