Murchhana by Amrita Lahiri
Murchhana is based on stories from the oral tradition of the kohl players (drummers) of rural Orissa. These stories have roots in ancient texts, but have evolved into many branches, having been told over generations.
The Khol players of Orissa interpret sangeet (music) as a combination of the three- nritya (dance), geeta (song), vadya (instrument)- plus a fourth element- the life- which is interpreted as Murchhana.
The story begins with a dialogue between the singer and dancer comparing the physical body to sangeet. Just as a physical body is lifeless without its soul, in that same way, sangeet comes alive with Murchhana- its soul. The singer asks what is the use of physical expertise without spirit? And what is the spirit? What is it that makes sangeet worthwhile and takes it towards Moksha? It is Murchhana.
