“Acting with passion,
Becoming the characters,
The play touched the hearts.”

When I read the two words in this week’s challenge, the first thought that came to me was ‘Yakshagana’. It is a traditional theatre form of coastal Karnataka. There is a Yakshagana training centre not far from our home. There are many who are very interested in learning this traditional art form, which is a blessing.
