Purush Opens. Time for all dancers to attend and learn

You must give it to Anita Ratnam. She is good at getting things done and giving a touch of class to events.

The Natya Darshan seminar and performances under the Kartik Fine Arts sabha banner got off to a sooth start this morning at Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Mylapore.

Though work is incomplete at the Bhavan's auditorium, this morning in that hall with a jet black stage and a few lights on, this seemed just the place to be and to listen.

Listen to two very interesting, illustrative and expressive speakers. Writer critic Leela Venkataraman and writer and speaker Devdutt Patnaik.

They got an attentive audience and a huge round of applause though the attendance was below par.

The theme - Purush - is engaging and as we broke off for our daily grind, a panel was formed on stage for the final part of the morning's discussion.

The evening dance recitals - all by male artistes and all of them of great distinction - from Astad Deboo to A Lakshman - are must watch recitals. They are ticketed concerts and well worth your rupee. Go for them.

As Anita said, in jest; Devdutt has the release of his latest book on Sita tomorrow but please be here for our seminar!
