Lakshmi Prabhavam 

Ravikiran was commissioned by the organisers of the Cleaveland Tyagaraja Aradhana Festival, led by Mr V V Sundaram. He composed this in 1994 but it was presented in North America in April-June 1997. After extensive research on Goddess Lakshmi, Ravikiran zeroed in on five episodes that could be presented with dramatic and artistic appeal. The 80-raga, four language production (Tamil, Telugu, Sanskri and Hindi) was a first of its kind presentation on Goddess Lakshmi. The 23-member team that presented the shows included 11 dancers, 6 musicians besides choreographer, Guru Rhadha and others.
