Episode Three
Kathak by Shaswati Sen
Kathak by Nalini & Kamalini

As Kathak became popular among the Nawabs in the royal courts a healthy competition developed among the artistes, the movements became more fast moving and vigorous to keep the Nawabs entertained. However Hindu themes were not left out. Nawab Wasid Ali Shah himself wrote a number of songs on Krishna and his pranks which were choreographed and danced by many dancers. His dance drama Indira Sabha had a number of Hindu characters. Just as Kathak shifted from temples to courts after a few decades it was performed for royal families and small gatherings. Kathak was danced to Hindu songs as well as Urdu and Hindi Ghazals. This episode features Shaswati Sen, a very popular graceful star dancer, and senior disciple of Guru Birju Maharaj, performing to a urdu ghazal in Lucknow Gharana style. This episode also features Nalini and Kamalini performing to a Tulsidas Bhajan in Banaras Gharana style. This episode also features Nalini and Kamalini performing to a Tulsidas Bhajan in Banaras Gharana style. The Duo also explain the transition of Kathak from being performed in the temples, to the royal courts and finally as an art form on stage.

Episode Four
Kathak by Shaswati Sen
Jugalbandhi – Kathak by Nirupama and Rajendra
Bharatanatyam by Mridula and Praveen

Shaswati Sen, senior disciple of Guru Birju Maharaj explains and performs the highlights in her Guru’s choreography. She then performs a Sargam which is a pure dance number. The nuances in the costume design and jewelery worn by the Kathak artistes are also highlighted. This is followed by a jugalbandhi of Kathak and Bharatanatyam, presenting Nirupama and Rajendra for Kathak and Mridula and Praveen for Bharatanatyam. This number copares and contrasts the similarities and differences in these two classical styles.

Tina, USA
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.
