The fire of tapas (penance) burns retas or soma (semen fluid) in the body of the human being, purges it of poisonous lust and turns it into the healing nectar of energy. The process is equated with the cycle of waters, incited in the universe by the solar fire. The devotee substitutes a new, clean self for his old self through his ablution in the Mahakumbha.

Joker acts in between are supported by innovative masks, costumes, specially created music and dance. For the actor/student it was a challenge to perform in front of an audience of three thousand odd people circled from all sides. For the circus performer the challenge was to stick to a story. For the rest of us, the audience, a visual never seen before. IGNCA in collaboration with National School of Drama had hosted three days of Circus at IGNCA in 2013. The entire performance was documented by NSD. A film based on this documentation has now been made by well known film maker Shri Sanjay Mahirshi.
