Young Aishwaria has a promising future

Holding promise, Aishwaria, a Class VII student performed her Bharatanatyam solo in the HPCL, Waltair Park Auditorium on Tuesday last. Thanks to the diligent observation coupled with soulful follow-up action by her parents, she has been provided enough opportunity to get her intrinsic talent in the art tuned under the tutelage of Priya Ramkumar, a disciple of Revathi Muttuswami of Srirangam.Starting off with Alaripu in Roopakam by way of offering obeisance to Nataraja, Mother Earth, the Heavens and the Guru, she offered pushpanjali with Naataraga kriti Mahaganapathim. Fulfilling the requirements of the Bharatanatyam format, she exhibited scintillating nritta by way of a Jathiswaram in Ragamalika in Aadi, Sabdam in Ragamalika in Misrachapu in which she struck an enthralling balance of nritta and nritya and the varnam Maaye Maayansodariye in Todi in Aadi. Happily, the dance tended to reflect a few glimpses of aesthetics imparted in the process by some greats in the arena and her effort seemed to be on the way attaining full bloom.In the intermission, Guru Priya, her guru Revathi Muttuswami of Srirangam Bharatanatyala, who did nattuvangam, mridangam vidwan G.R. Senthilkumar, violinist Nagarcoil V. Ganapathi and vocalist Kokilavani Chitra Ganeshan were felicitated .A.R.S.
