Aparna's striking performance

Powai Fine Arts, one of the leading cultural organisations of suburban Mumbai, presented the Bharata Natyam performance of two talented exponents, Revathi Srinivasraghavan and Aparna Ramakrishnan at Nahar's International School auditorium in Chandivli.

It is always a pleasure to watch dancers who dance with lot of passion and commitment. One such performance that created a lasting impression for its clarity and striking movements was the Bharata Natyam performance by Aparna Ramakrishnan. Aparna is the senior and ardent disciple of Guru Nirmala Nagaraj of the famed Kalakshetra in Chennai. After the invocatory numbers and the traidtional Alarippu, a composition of Dandayapani Pillai and choreography by Nirmala Nagaraj. The piece-de-resistance of the evening was Navaraga Malika Varnam 'Swamiy Azhai Todi Va", wherein the heroine tells her sakhi to call her Lord without any haste, as it is the suitable time to meet. As "Vasakasajja nayika", she adorns herself and waits anxiously to meet her Lord. Slim and trim Aparna performs with effortless ease and precision and she has a natural flalir for expressions which was further revealed in the Padam "Kanna Kidai" in which the mother is worried about her daughter, as she is married to a warrior but the sakhi convinces the mother that there is nothing to be worried as he is loving man. Aparna was also pleasing in the varied "sancharis".

In the Ashtpadi "Nath Hare"in which Krishna is told that he must meet Radha as she is anxiously waiting for him, Aparna concluded her performance with the intricate Hamsanandi Thillana noteworthy for its complex rhythmic and sparkling movements. Aparna received fine orchestral support from Guru Nirmala Nagaraj for nattuvangam, vocal by Dipa Nair, mridangam by KP AnilKumar, veena by Aananthnarayan and flute by Sujit Nair. With more concern towards the finer aspects of dancing, Aparna can defintely aspire to be among the main rank of dancers.

Revathi Srinvasraghavan and her disciples presented a vibrant Bharata Natyam recital, particulalry the number on Lord Shiva, with wonderful music by Satish Krishnamurthy was impressive.
