Kalakshetra group and A Solo by Krishnaveni Lakdhmanan

Glamorously packaged snippets of number of star performers, talented newcomers and extracts from popular dance dramas- a bird's eye view of some of the different styles, some basic info about each style, has all been rolled into one TV serial- WHEN THE GODS DANCE. The first episode starts with kalakshetra, India's leading Institution of Fine arts situated in Chennai. Founded by Smt Rukmani Devi Arundale in 1936, Kalakshetra can more appropriately be described as a "Temple of fine arts". Art lovers from all over the world come here to learn the Indian art forms under this Banyan tree. The principal Krishnaveni Lakshmanan demonstrates a small item to her students. We also have the senior staff of Kalakshetra who have been under direct tutelage of Rukmani Devi saying a few words, followed by a Thillana choreographed by Smt Rukmani Devi.


Dr. Padma Subrahmanyam (Bharatanrityam)
V.P. Dhananjayan (kathakali)
This episode features two famous dancers, Shri V.P.Dhananjayan and Dr. Padma subrahmanyam. The foremost among those who were trained at Kalakshetra but later established their own schools of dance are Shri Dhananjeyan and Smt. Shanta Dhananjeyan. Shri Dhananjeyan who is an exponent of not only Bharathanatyan but also Kathakali, performs his most popular item "Deiva karunyam,". The Indian press praised Dr. padma subrahmanyam as having opened a new chapter in the history of Bharathanatyam. In this episode she performs kalinga Nartanam, an extract from "Krishnauya thubyam namaha" which describes how Krishna won over kalinga, the multi headed serpent and danced on 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.
