Korada Narasimha Rao

(All photos courtesy guru KV Sathyanarayana)

January 12, 2007

Guruji gave me these photos to publish in my souvenir, which was released on 23rd December 2006. I was felicitated on 24th; he performed at Kuchipudi on 26th in Mohini Bhasamasura. And he was gone on 4th January 2007.

It is a great loss to me. He is my guru and uncle and we performed together so many times, I as Satyabhama and he was Sutradhari; I as Mohini and he as Bhasmasura; I as Durga and he as Mahishasura, I as Alamelumanga and he as Annamacharya...we did so many prestigious programs like that. It is still difficult to accept that he is no more. I feel as if he is still with us.

He participated in my 25th Annual Celebrations on 23rd & 24th December. We have lost a great dancer and great guru.
