Set in the margam format of Bharatnatyam, ‘Abha’ work draws inspiration from Devdutt Pattanaik’s Sita which is a compilation of the numerous regional variations of the Ramayana across India. ‘Taulanika mimamse’ or a holistic perspective has been the base of our understanding of spirituality in India: it is an approach which looks at any story or situation from various perspectives and tries to unearth what this story has to offer. It is an endeavour to understand the characters’ actions in the context of their identity and time and the conceptualisation of ‘Abha’ is largely rooted in this perspectival framework.
