Avataara is a story of eternality of forces. It begins with evolution of living beings from a single atom to human personalities of good and evil. A negative and positive sides are the two faces deeper human mind, which is the greatest creator of many disguises - which we refer to an INCARNATION
It can be
the forces of nature of the five elements
It can be the evolution of the most fierce force as a male and its antidote as a righteous force of the universe in the form of a woman
It can be the simplistic pure devotion of a child(Prahlada), who trusts the Omni-presence of truth(Vishnu) or it can an glorification of ignorance (Hiranya Kashipu)
It can be a dream of invincibility, immortality (Story of tripura samhara)
Incarnations, can be elements or woman or non-human or anything in this Universe....
Avataara - Our humble dance production just restates the statement from the Bhagavad-Gita Gita -
Whenever injustice prevails
I shall take incarnations
reincarnations again and again.
Evolution and Pancha Bhootha - The amaranthine force - sometime referred to as "GOD" wakes up from his constant inactivity and infuses the spirit into the matter. Out of nothingness evolves movement. First an atom is created. These atoms collide with each other giving rise to other forms of existence. Then there is the creation of the Five elements or the Pancha Bhoota of human existence - Earth, Light, Fire, Air and Space.
Energy repulse Energy When the human Dhanuja becomes Demon and harasses the universe, the Good power in the Unifies as Goddess Amba to destroy the wicked mind. He takes the form of a bull and a fierce battle ensues between the two. But finally good triumphs over evil and the demon Dhanuja is destroyed.
Knowledge repulse Ignorance The fact that natural rules cannot be bent on the cycle of material world would only be understood by an enlightened mind into to a closed one, which is interlocked due to EGO and Ignorance.The tussle of war is the omnipresence of "VISHNU" - the lord of Sthiti. The fact, HiranyaKashipu disagrees the omnipresence of "VISHNU" and Prahlada, his son proves on omnipresence of "VISHNU" costs dearly to HiranyaKashipu
The mighty asura Hiranya Kashipu is an enemy of the righteous people. Due to his hatred towards Vishnu, he chooses a path of genocide of holy saints and sages who worship Vishnu. His arrogance rises out of the fact that he has obtained a boon from Lord Brahma, the creator of the universe that he shall be killed neither by a human nor an animal, neither indoors nor outdoors, neither during nor during night, neither by any weapon nor by any metal. Eventually his son poses as his greatest enemy because the little boy believes in the truth that a mortal being like his father cannot be all-pervasive Vishnu. He becomes an ardent devotee of Lord Vishnu. After numerous unsuccessful efforts to change Prahlada's mind and many attempts kill him, the wicked Hiranya Kashipu finally questions existence of Lord Vishnu. Lord Vishnu appears in the form of a human with a lion head Narasimha (Nara=Human, Simha=Lion) and destroys the asura with his long nails on the threshold of the house.
The Impregnable Flying forts Shiva is Tripura Samhaari (The destroyer of the three cities). Three wicked brothers built three invincible revolving cities in the sky. Having great strength, these cities created havoc on all the living world. Unfortunately, the greatest Engineering skills are misused. They had a great boon from Brahma that they cannot be destroyed alone. If they get destroyed another one would be created. They could be demolished, only when they align with the Stars and planets of universe, and a great missile shot by a great person. Upon the cry from universe, when the three cities are aligned, the Supreme, powerful destroyer God - Lord Shiva shoots all the three impregnable forts in a single arrow and saves the Universe from suffering.
