Bharat Lila

Bharat Lila is a colorful folk dance native to Ganjam District of Orissa. It is based on an episode called Subhadra Parinaya (marriage of Subhadra), which is borrowed from the great epic Mahabharata.

In this dance Lord Krishna is portrayed as a mediator between Subhadra and Arjun, her lover. The story slowly progresses to a positive end with their marriage.
