Parama Padam is an ancient Indian board game which was created in ancient India. On the game board there are a hundred squares which are illustrated with ladders and snakes. The ladders in the game represent good virtues and the snakes indicate vices. Ladders take you up as the good deeds take us to heaven and the snakes bring you down as cause of your vices. During the 18th century, the British made this game popular world-wide and called it “Snakes and Ladders”. Drawing inspiration from the philosophy of the ancient Indian Board Game – Parama Padam (Snakes & Ladders), Sutra Foundation Malaysia and Apsaras Arts Singapore present a solo thematic production, featuring internationally acclaimed Bharatanatyam dance artiste Mohanapriyan Thavarajah.
