Dancing for the Lord

Saraswati Kala Kendra and Research Centre presented the Bharatanatyam recital by accomplished exponent Subitha Murli and her students in a programme organised by International Shree Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) at the banque hall of Maxis Mall in Bhayandar. The parents and audience were quite excited to watch little children perform on the stage.

Subitha Murli is a Bharatanatyam and Kuchipudi exponent and is the disciple of Dr Rajyalkshmi Seth. Subitha has established the Saraswati Kala Kendra in order to train young aspirants in the field of Bhratanatyam. The programme commenced with the traditional 'Alarippo' that introduced the basic steps of Bharatanatyam, performed by all the students followed by invocatory numbers in praise of Lord Ganesha as a remover of obstacles and protector of all mankind, and Goddess Saraswati – as the Goddess of knowledge and wisdom. It was quite exciting to see young children performing with lot of sincerity and honesty.

It was a pleasant surprise to watch the mothers of the students performing the traditional folk dance of Kerala, known as Kaikottikli, which litterly means 'Clap and Dance'. They performed quite well, winning the appreciation from the audience. Krishna Lila portrayed the little naughty Krishna eating mud and mother Yashoda is shocked to see the Vishwarwapa Darshanam in his little mouth and his other pranks. Swagatham Krishna was performed by Subitha herself, in praise of Lord Krishna, performed with devotion and involvement.

The last and highlight performance was the 'Raslila', which symbolises the 'Maha Raas' in which all the Gopis' dance along with Lord Krishna, giving a spectacle to the audience that there are several 'Krishnas' dancing along with the Gopis, thereby portraying the philosophy that the human soul unites with the Divine. It is creditable on the part of Subitha Murli to teach and encourage young children to take up classical dance in today's contemporary society, where children and youth are attracted towards the western culture and lifestyle.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)Sometimes, pressure is a good thing, as it brings out the best in you. You will outshine your colleagues in whatever you choose to do. But your expectations may far exceed the outcome. Ganesha asks that you have patience. Results take time.
