Indian Classical Dances
Indian Classical Dances
Description

From the Jacket:

India's rich cultural legacy has been founded on the abiding faith of the Indians in the divine power, whose worship had found expression through dance. 'Bhakti' or devotion was the underlying essence of the various dance forms that developed in India.

Indian Classical Dances is a unique presentation of the eight classical dance styles - Bharatanatyam, Kathak, Kathakali, Kuchipudi, Manipuri, Mohiniyattam, Odissi and Sattriya, through a concise portrayal of the background of each dance form, the salient features, format of presentation, music and costume. The simplistic approach of the narration coupled with the unique collection of photographs, will enable the lay reader to visualize, comprehend and appreciate the diverse dance forms of India.

About the Author:

Hailing from an illustrious family of freedom fighters, Shobhana Narayan is one of the foremost and renowned dancer 'par excellence', whose name has become synonymous with Kathak. Her individualistic, contemporary and dynamic choreography shows a unique blend of both the schools of this dance form. Her in-depth researches on the development of dance in general, and Kathak in particular, have found expression in many of her works and have received great acclaim.

Her creativity and contribution to the art has been admired and recognized through numerous awards including the Government of India President's awards the 'Padmashri' (1992) and the 'Sangeet Natak Akademi' Award' (1999-2000).

She is also a member of the Indian Audits and Accounts Service. She is married to Dr. Herbert Traxl (Austrian Ambassador) and has a son.

Testimonials

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I just wanted to say that this is I think my 3rd (big) order from you, and the last two times I received immaculate service, the books arrived well and it has been a very pleasant experience. Just wanted to say thanks for your efficient service.

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.
