Astavadhanam - a Great literary feet- honoring of Scholars in Sanskrit and Literature

This is one of the greatest literary fete where one person has to answer the questions in different areas of 8 persons at a time and keep the answers in memory to recite back at the end of the program in a sequential manner.  The construction of the poetry should be as per chandus and construction should be as per authenticated order only.  Eight persons drag the person who is called ASTA AVADHANI in different directions to cause disturbance to his memory, and he has to withstand all the questions and present ultimately to the audience all the questions and answers in a sequential manner without any change of the text or order.  Dr P V Sesha Sai Aswamedhayaaji
