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.

Thank you very much. Your sale prices are wonderful.
Michael, USA
Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
