Rabindranath Tagore's Dance Drama - 'Chandalika' (In Hindi) - 2393 903 - LP Record

Based on a Buddhist tale 'Chandalika' was published in the form of a dance drama in 1938 and was for the first time staged in Calcutta in the same year. The story of 'Chandalika' centers round Prokiti (chandalika), a low caste girl, who for that reason is thoroughly despised by her neighbors so much that even hawkers in the street would not sell their goods to her. She broods over her destiny and curses her mother for bringing her into the world. While in this mood, she goes to fetch water from the well where she meets Ananda, a desciple of Buddha. Thristy and Exhausted, Ananda begs for a drink of water. Prokriti informs him that she was an untouchable and as such it was decreed that water from her well was to be treated as polluted by the high caste. Ananda replies to the effect that all human beings were wqual, drinks the water, blesses her and departs. The incident changes Prokriti's entire outlook on life and she begins to live for the day when Ananda would appear before her again. He does on one occassion go past her chanting hymns with other Buddhist monks but fails to notice her. Bitterly disappointed, she seeks help from her mother who is known to practice witchcraft. The mother agrees and by various means of sorcery succeeds in bringing Ananda before Prokriti. The later touches the monk's feet and begs his forgiveness for dragging him down to her own level. The play ends with Ananda pronouncing his blessings on her.
