February,  2019

HOPE has two daughters
Their names are ANGER and COURAGE
Anger at the way things are
And Courage to see that they do not remain as they are

- St Augustine of Hippo

When it's over, I want to say,
All my life I was married to amazement
I was the bridegroom, taking the world in my arms

- Mary Oliver, American poet

Narthaki Nataraj, Milena Salvini, Prabhu Deva

A loud round of cheers for two wonderful dancers we admire! NARTHAKI NATARAJ and PRABHU DEVA. Bharatanatyam has been their cornerstones and both have taken it in different directions with stunning success. On stage and on screen, these artistes have created an aesthetic and kinetic that is being admired and applauded.
NARTHAKI, student of Natyacharya Kitappa Pillai
PRABHU DEVA, student of Natyacharya Udupi Lakshminarayana
MILENA SALVINI, for her contribution to Kathakali

And congratulations to all the performing artistes in theatre, various music genres and other folk arts who were recognized by the Government of India.

If birth is like Mangalacharan and adolescence is like Battu, full of nritta, youth can be seen as lyrical Pallavi, ripened middle age can be compared to Abhinaya and finally death is like Moksh.
