The play ‘This Mahabharata was written and directed by Mrianalini Sarabhai. Darapan Academy trained the students, music was provided by Jaya Nayyar. The scenes related to the training of the five Pandavas, Drona, Eklavya, Pandavas in exile, the dice game and the Bhagwat Geeta scene. The uniqueness of the dance drama was the Modern Mahabharata which was incorporated keeping in mind the present situation prevailing in the country.
