Lord Brahma, the creator, had found the celestial beings deviating from righteousness in the Treta Yuga. His efforts to bring them back to morals failed. As the last resort, the Lord took four different elements from the four Vedas and created Kridaniyakam – a toy which can be seen and heard, named Natyaveda. This story is detailed in sage Bharata's Natyasastra, the ancient Indian dramaturgy. A toy involves mirth and tears. Natya which reflects the light and darkness of life is a toy. But it has the prowess to guide the human society from vices to virtues. Comedy and tragedy are integral to mankind. In the traditional Sanskrit theatre, Bhagavadajjukam and Mattavilasam are farces pregnant with philosophical anguish. The book entitled Kridaniyakam is an analysis of these two plays culminating into the terrain of Kridaniyakam.
