Dancing for the Goddess

As part of the Shri Sarada Navaratri Mohotsavam, Guruji Ganesh Sashtrigal of the South Indian Bhajana Samaj and Shree Pavitra Arts Academy presented a Bharata Natyam performance by accomplished exponent Nandhini Ashok and her disciples at the Ram Mandir premises in Matunga. It was pleasing to watch the dancers dancing with devotion and involvement.

Shree Pavitra Arts Academy (Bandra) has been established by Guru Nandhini Ashok with the intention of promoting and propagating classical arts like Bharata Natyam. Over the years, several young aspirants have learnt Bharata Natyam and performed at various prestigious festivals all over India.

The performance commenced with the invocatory numbers. The number 'Kamakshi' interpreted the varied aspects of Goddess Parvati. In the Surdas Bhajan 'Hai Govind Hai Gopala' incorporated the power and the glory of Lord Krishna and the savior of all mankind. In this number, the episode of Gajendra being caught by the crocodile and ultimately saved by the grace of the almighty was enacted

Besides the Varnam, in praise of the Goddess, the Ananda Tandavam displayed the cosmic dance of Lord Shiva in all glory and splendour when all the Gods rejoice to see the Lord dancing. The programme concluded with the Swati Tirunal Dhanasri Thillan, noteworthy for its intricate movements and the salutations to the Goddess as the 'slayer if evil'. On the whole a pleasing performance with a divine touch.
