Description

Eight hundred years ago, in the city of Kalyan, a man called Basavanna assembled a congregation of poets, mystics, social revolutionaries and philosophers, unmatched for their creativity and social commitment in the history of Karnataka, even perhaps of India itself. They opposed idolatry, rejected temple worship, upheld the equality of the sexes, and condemned the caste system. But events took a violent turn whey they acted on their beliefs and a Brahmin girl married a ' low-caste boy'. Tale-danda ( Death by Beheading) deals with the few weeks during which a vibrant, prosperous society plunged into anarchy and terror.
