Anita says.....

Health is not a debt we can cancel
The body collects..
Memories, events, heartbreak, loss

Yet here we are. Among the ruins (and some shards of rapture) of past 11 months. Surveying how we have somehow found the means to survive while millions have dropped off and fallen through the cracks of Fate and Time. This past year has been called a time of "Global Weirdness" by the New York Times. It seems to fit. We have fallen down the rabbit hole of every dark and dismal sensorial experience and one emotion is echoed through our lives and the voice of the media. FATIGUE.

The creative community in India has been slapped on both cheeks. Cancelled opportunities and rendered invisible by the government that does not seem to care about the dire situation of its heroes and heroines who are somehow expected to step up when it's time for the chant of INDIA SHINING.

- Chandralekha
('I believe dance is a 'Project' to enable a recovery of the body, of our spine,', Dec 30, 2020)

Narthaki, you have done a great job for dance. May you continue for ever!
- Prof Parul Shah
