Description

About the Author

 

Swimming and Kathak may not have a mutual relationship but the renowned dancer Bharti Gupta has been able to establish a relationship between the two and the combined effect is aptly reflected in her personality.

 

Dr. Bharti has been able to pursue many diverse fields and establish an equation among them to derive maximum advantage. An M.A. in political science followed by B.Ed, an ace swimmer at national level, a master exponent of Kathak dance, a Sangitacharya from Prayag Sangeet Samiti for her thesis on Adhyatm (spirituality) in Kathak are only a few of mile-stones in her life which are indeed interesting as well as inspiring.

 

Dr. Bharti started her training under senior Gurus at a tender age of ten. Her performances exhibit the virtuosity of both Lucknow and Jaipur Gharanas. She is committed to innovations and experimentation.

 

She has performed both in India and overseas and continues to perform. She was honoured with a Gold medal at Design Expo at Nagoya, Japan. She was awarded Shringarmani in 1992 (Mumbai) and Pragyan Samman at Delhi (1994). These days she teaches Kathak at Mumbai, is an examiner for Gandharva Sangeet Vidyalaya, free lance Journalist and engaged in research work on Kathak.

I love antique brass pieces and your site is the best. Not only can I browse through it but can purchase very easily.
Indira, USA
Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt
GABRIEL-FREDERIC Daniel
Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA

Thank you so much for your wonderful store and wonderful service. A Naga Kanya stat arrived yesterday. The sculpture was very well packaged, and it is very beautiful. I am very very happy with the statue and very grateful to your company for providing access to such lovely works of art. Thank you for providing truly beautiful objects and for providing great service. All the very best to you,
