Dance like a Man
Dance like a Man
Description
From the Back of the Book

Jairaj Parekh and his wife Ratna, ageing Bharatyam dancers, are engaged in finding a substitute mridangam player to accompany their daughter Lata at her performance at a high-profile dance festival. Lata, in the meantime, nervously awaits the meeting between the parents and Viswas, the young man she wishes to marry. When the four meet, and in the conversations and discussions that follow, the fissures in the relationship between Jairaj and Ratna begin to explode into high-strung battles which lead back to their own youth and the tragedy that lies at the heart of their discord. The younger couple have their own issues to contend with the obvious mismatch between the two sets of parents, the arguments over Lata's career as a dancer after marriage and most unsetting of all Lata's attempt to balance her parents ambition with her own needs and desires.

A brilliant study of human relationships and weakness framed by the age old battle between tradition and youthful rebellion, Dance like a Man has been Hailed as one of the best works of the dramatic imagination in recent times.

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
