From the CD

The personality of the great danseuse, actress and theatre is unveiled by Dr. Kapila Vatsyayan. Belonging to an aristocratic family of nawabs, it was unusual for her to show her urge to become a dancer. She went to Germany, and got a 3 years’ diploma in dancing. It was a training in expressing the consciousness of one’s body, using appropriate postures and adding emotions to the performance. On her return, she joined the dancing school of Uday Shankar. Zohra says that Uday Shankar stressed the importance of self-consciousness of the body and motivation of the spirit for giving a good performance. However, after the Centre was closed, she moved to Mumbai after a brief stint at Lahore. Here she joined the theatre group of the great theatre personality Pritiavi Raj Kapoor. She worked with him for fifteen years, and even acted in films with him. She cherishes the memories of this stage of her life. Her husband’s death made her shift to London. The ten years she spent in London were tough, full of hardships and it was a struggle for survival. It was a TV show that gave her a break and helped her economically. But she wanted to return to her roots, the yearning was too strong and so she came back to Mumbai. Though not a feminist, but she feels that a woman has many roles and must be given her due. When questioned about death, she replies in a matter of fact manner that she is looking forward to it.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
