From the CD

Kathakali, the traditional art form of Kerala, is traced in seven episodes. Kathak is story and kali is play. Through make-up rather than mask the facial expressions are enhanced instead of being covered or concealed. The film traces the masters of the tradition of yesteryears. It shows how a disciple gives dakshina to get initiated into Guru-shishya parampara during the rainy season. It highlights the dynamic exercises, control breath and Ayurvedic oil massages for stimulating the body. It moves through the five salutations, Namaskaara Panchakam, exercises like Ketti Chaatham, Chauvarinmal Oonni Amaral, Thancham Vechu, Chavitti Thaazhuka etc. These exercises enhance flexibility and stamina and are harnessed to the dance sequence Kaal Maatam – the basic repertoire of postures of Kathakali. The film traces seven Churuku or exercises that help coordinate eye, hand and body movements. It highlights the anti clockwise eye movements and facial exercises before taking a close look at the 24 hand gestures traced from Hastha Lakshana Deepika. The film then shifts to the actual performance of Dakshayajanam and traces two primary languages of communication in Kathakali, drumming sound and mudra. The film highlights the rasas to depict the eight major expressions (bhavas), which are interlinked and spring from one another.

Other highlights are the evolution of Abhinaya Sangeetham, with special focus on Jajamaneeya system. The detailed concepts of make up application are addressed before finally showcasing the enactment of Ravana and Mandodari; Bali Sugriva and white beard Hanuman-Vella Thaddi.

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 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.
