Question 21 Explanation: 

"The word Talamaddale is derived from the word 'tala' (Cymbal) and Maddale (the drum)." "Though Tala Maddale normally focusses on episodes from the epics, Bhagavata and puranas, episodes have also been created on other issues, including the Second World War, Tashkent Agreement, and even one against computerisation about a couple of decades ago called Ganakasura Kalaga."

"A variation of yakshagana theatre, Talamaddale is not a well known art-form outside coastal karnataka. It is called Koota (gathering) as against the costumed performance ata (play). It is also called Baithak (sitting), prasanga (episode), odike (reading ) and Jagara (keep awake). To put it simply, Talamaddale is a Yakshagana minus dance,,costume and stage conventions. It has features which are a combination of puranapravachana (discourse), harikatha and Yakshagana. While the Yakshagana ata has speech, dance and costume and the ballet has dance and costume, talamaddale has only the spoken word. Music is common to all forms."
