The kings of the two states used to kill each other. Once, fearing Angaraja, Magadhraj escapes and jumps into the Champa River, where he sees that all of Nagaloka is located.
There, King Nagraj gives refuge to Magadhraj. With Nagraj’s encouragement, Magadhraj defeats Angraj in a battle and becomes the king of Angraj. He followed dietary and selfish events. Man is a very greedy and selfish creature, now he will never want to be human.
He wished for the restoration of modesty and purification in man. The piece was performed beautifully, leaving the audience spellbound.
