'Kaamkandla Theatre

These are the ruins of an open-air octagonal theatre depicting the love story of a famous dancer Kaamkandla. It is in Bilahri village, about 90 km from Jabalpur. I have seen many parts of the remains of archeological importance lying here and there in the fields near and around the villages. It is a truth that per month remains worth crores of rupees are stolen and smuggled. If a place can be marked in every village like a Panchayat building or school and villagers are made aware of the importance the ruins then wherever the villagers find the remains, they can bring and store them here, ensuring their safety. These archeological jewels could be preserved and the villagers will develop a feeling of pride about their glorious past. Their children will also be educated.
