Chhinna Jatra is a form of drama
performed in the earlier days for the mere amusement of the spectators. This form of drama existed before the arrival of the Bhaona dance
. The Bhaona dance had replaced the Chhinna Jatra which had no proper rules and regulations for its execution. It neither had an appropriate beginning nor a suitable ending. Hence, it began abruptly and also had an abrupt finish. The drama was replete with Shringar Rasa
, amorous and erotic. The main thought of the Chhinna Jatra was to provide enjoyment and gratification to the spectators. Hence, it even lacked the religious aspect.
