BharataNatyam is my pathway to reach out to the world. Be it for children or serious minded dancers, as an artist, I try to impart the same set of values I have received from my guru. In the process of lecture demonstrations with organizations like IRCEN and SPICMACAY, I have got to see nooks and corners of my country. Curious eyed children who sometimes come to schools only to receive their mid-day meals have spent hours imitating “hastas” or “mudras” that I have told them.

CLASSES

In places like Tuli on the borderland of Assam and Nagaland, students have refused to acknowledge BharataNatyam as part of their culture. In Pauri, the other corner of our vast motherland I have stood in awe in front of the Himalaya range. It is here that I have faced the challenge of the ivory towers that surround an artist and understood how to deconstruct my art without diluting it. Similarly when facing even senior dancers by age in workshops conducted under aegis of Temple of Fine Arts, Malaysia or University of Visual and Performing Arts, Colombo, I have realized art has no boundaries, be it age, space or time.
