KEA FESTIVAL BENGALURU - CONNOISSEURS’ COMMENT, (Program on 26th February 2017- Prabhath Rangamandira)
Here, everybody is still in the “Nasha” of your program :)
All the young dancers and the rasikas are talking about the program with sheer enchanted bhaava.
We have no words to describe, as it was one of the finest experiences of our lives.
Every imagery, every emotion, every detail in communication is so well etched in our minds.
Some even said that this is EXACTLY how Dasharatha must have felt. This is how Manthara must have spoken.
They were amazed how Akka kept her back in that position for that long a time, what a GREAT ARTIST!
Your moving backward with sliding feet & clenching fist was LOVED by all. What to say of the emotions….GOD !!!
As Rasikas, we all openly declare OUR LOVE for your art.
You have all immortalised the episode !!!

The happiness road: “With acceptance there is only happiness”
- Avis Viswanathan, www.dtnext.in, 8 Jan 2017
There’s a glint in the eyes of the Dhananjayan couple that you can’t
miss. Perhaps, it reflects their state of inner joy. Almost as if he is
reading my mind, Dhananjayan says, “Happiness is just being. It is about
being content with what you are doing, with how you are living,” adds
his wife Shanta.
