If Ragas were to be imagined to be Deva Kanyaas, I am full of sympathy for the Mysterious Devataa 'Karnataka Kapi'. She has been much misrepresented, morphed and maligned for a long time, and this Rasikas.Org thread is another instance.
When I heard about the 'weepy' style, something I understand in the context fully, I was reminded of a mythological soap (yes, it exists
!!!) on a channel called Life OK (yes sir
) where Sati, and her next avatar Parvati, is weeping all the time. That serial also depicts Devon ka Dev as totally unmoved despite all the weeping (or Karnataka Kapi discussions).
Is it perhaps now time to end this Karnataka Kapi discussion, dissection, dissertation, demarcation, denotification, desecration, deportation, decoration and deification (of which I am culprit!)
Or shall we continue, since actually, it is 'kind of fun'
