- Drama by Mandiram Students - 'Bedara Kanhayya’Folklore of Male Madeshwara Kavuda
- A very prominent line in Male Mahadeshwara folk poetry is the Bedera Kannayya line, in which Madeva performs many satyaphalakshas to protect his devotees. Vallabha, our Mayura Madeva, who advises everyone regardless of whether they are poor, colored, superior or inferior, Bada Kannayya is skilled in hunting, no one in Al Vidya can surpass Kannayya, Madeva has to take care of Kannayya and to get a baby boy, he creates a magic boar and makes Kannayya's arrow hit the boar, miraculously the boar is reborn and runs into the forest. When Baa Madeshwara of Seegegutti was meditating, Kannayya argued that there might be a pig inside the Seegegutti. That arrow hits Madeshwara's eye, when he does not ask to give me one eye and your two eyes, Kannayya offers his eyes and becomes a true devotee. This play of Bedara Kannayya is the story of how Madeva, impressed by Kannayya's devotion, regains his eyes by a miracle and gets Beda Gampanna to perform his first puja.
