Avadhānaṃ is a literary performance popular from the very ancient days in India.

Though Avadhānaṃ originated from Sanskrit, this literary event is popularised by Telugu poets. This Avadhanam requires concentration, memory power, multitasking and observation. To achieve these qualities one should have command on literature, poetry, music, mathematical calculations.

Avadhani, who performs the Avadhanam has to answer to the questions asked by Pruchakas. The format of avadhanams is Astavadhanam, Sahasravadhanam and Maha Sahasravadhanam.

The first question “Droupadi and Sita oka tandriki puttina biddalekada” was raised by the Sringeri Peetha Uttaradhikari Sri Sri Sri Vidusekhara Bharati Swamy. The Avadhani capably answered the first line to the question.
