TO ALL BHARATAKALANJALI ALUMNI SCHOOLS AROUND THE GLOBE:
!!!    THE YEAR 2018   !!!

BHARATAKALANJALI'S 50th  ANNIVERSARY (GOLDEN JUBILEE) WILL COINCIDE WITH THE 80TH YEAR OF NAATYAACHAARYA DHANANJAYAN AND 75th  YEAR OF SHANTA DHANANJAYAN. HOPE ALL BHARATAKALANJALI ALUMNI / ALUMNAE - STUDENTS OF THE DHANANJAYANS - WILL COME TOGETHER TO MAKE  THIS EVENT A GREAT ONE !!!  INDEED.

Let this news be spread to all, through each one's face book or emails or word of mouth.

YOUR VALUABLE SUGGESTIONS / IDEAS FOR THE CELEBRATION INVITED.

As a mark of Bharatakalanjali alumni / alumnae's commitments to art & culture of Bhaarat, change your schools' names from 'Dance school'  to NAATYA academy or school.

Try to eliminate the word the 'dance' and  instead propagate the word "Naatya" as much as possible. This will make a great revolution as far as our classical arts are concerned.
