Catch them young

Shivali Cultural Society of India presented the young dancers festival as a mark of tribute to the founder C,M.Rana at the Mysore Association auditorium. It is really creditable as platforms are not easily available, particularly for children and young performers.

Several dance teachers from various parts of Mumbai and Thane district presented their students as far most of them it was their first performance on stage, hence they were both nervous and excited too. Moreover the parents were completely thrilled to watch their children perform Bharata natyam for the first time on the stage.

Mudra Dance Academy, whose director is Bharata Natyam exponent Vrunda Upadhyaya. The academy is situated in Dombivali and there are several aspiring students learning the divine art form. Besides the invocatory numbers the students performed Jaganmohanan Krishna that portrays the Lord as the protector of all mankind and the destroyer of the evil. Vrunda has a charming personality and it was interesting to watch as to how she has been training the young dancers.

While the Astalakshmi number portrayed the eight forms of the goddess of prosperity and wealth, Adi Shankaracharya's Shiva Panchaakshara Shlokam featured the magnificence and the varied facets of the Lord of dance known as Nataraja. The  dancers concluded the evening with the intricate Thillana which is a demanding number. On the whole a festival exclusively for children and youth.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)Extra caution is needed especially if your work is of the speculative kind. Your recent success makes you complacent; you may be unaware that some forces are working against you. A tempting job offer at this juncture could lead to an uncertain future. A flirtation or attraction to a colleague or someone you know is likely and should be handled tactfully. You will not do anything, which can be termed unethical or immoral whether in love or relationship.
