Encountering God through Dance

Wednesday, March 13, 2019
By Vijay Shanker

Shanmukhapriya, the cultural wing of Subramanya Temple in Chedda nagar, Chembur, organised the Natyanjali festival of classical dances at the temple hall, that attracts the attention of classical dancers from various parts of the country and abroad. As the word Natyanjali signifies, dance is offered as an offering to the Almighty.

Several dancers performed with lot of devotion and sincerity, some of the dancers who performed included Pooja and Shraddha Hirwade from Nagpur, Nisha Gilbert and her disciples, Divya Warier, Aparna Sastry and Radhika and Sudha from Rajarashwari Bharata Natya Kala Mandir.

Divya Warier is a brilliant dancer and is the disciple of accomplished Bharata Natyam and Mohiniattam exponent Guru Jayashree Nair of Upasana Academy of Dance in Chembur. Divya commenced her Mohiniattam performance with a beautiful composition of Ganapati, that describes the varied attributes as the "Vignaharta" and the "Musika Vahana" and as the Lord who is the protector of all mankind and humanity. Divya is such a devoted performer that she gets completely imvolved in her performance, bringing out the best talent in her, pertaining to both expressions and technical quality of the graceful dance style.

The piece-de-resistance of the evening was the Swati Tirunal composition: "Chaliye Kunjanmo" that vividly describes the splendour and beauty of nature and animals and birds, hence the most befitting atmoshpere to meet the Lord. Divya danced with dexterity and subtlelity describing the varied aspects of nature and love. Divya is a professional performer who will soon rise on to become among the front rank of performers.
