Dance as the narration of a magical story; that recites on lips, illuminates imaginations and embraces the most sacred depths of souls. 👀👌💃🕺👯🕴️ - Shah Asad Rizvi

Kathakali is one of the major forms of classical Indian dance. It is a "story play" genre of art, but one distinguished by the elaborately colorful make-up, costumes and facemasks that the traditionally male actor-dancers wear 👁️👁️💖🇮🇳 #kathakalidance #kathakali #kerela #indian #travelstories #travelphotography #dance #storyplay #classicalindiandance #classical #art #makeup #colorful #costume #facemasks #traditional #traditionalart #dancers #imagination #magical #story #ancient #beautiful #indiatravel #india #indiaphotography #india_gram #india_clicks

If you love a flower, don’t pick it up.
Because if you pick it up it dies and it ceases to be what you love.
So if you love a flower, let it be.
Love is not about #possession
Love is about #appreciation

Meditations of an aspiring heart:
.
The marble tile asked the statue, "Why do people stand upon me and marvel upon your beauty, when we were mined from the same quary?" The statue replied, "Remember when the sculptor started working upon you first, but you couldn't take the chiseling and the hammering? He then started to work upon me instead. I tolerated the pain thinking, that if I want to become something beautiful, I have to pay this price." .
.
Whether it's life, or our life guides and teachers, they are carving us into a masterpiece. It's not meant to be easy; it's painstakingly difficult at times. In those moments, if we can focus our mind on reaching the fulfillment of the purpose of our lives, we may be able to tolerate the pain instead of falling apart, and make our lives sublime.

Such joy to watch Priyakshi perform for her Arangetram.

We may not understand the intricacies of Bharat Natyam, but the essence comes out like a wave and touches your heart.

To respected YOGA STUDENTS!

What are the qualifications of a good yoga teacher, guru, mentor or instructor? 
This question is commonly asked and discussed, isn’t it? The teachers are simply judged, but…

Have you ever asked yourself first, what are the qualifications to be a good YOGA STUDENT, disciple or shishya? Should the yoga disciples follow also certain standards?

People commonly questioning the fact that yoga teacher earning from teaching yoga. Is that wrong?

The spiritual Vedantic tradition called guru shishya parampara is explaining about both: teacher and the student relations.

The student should respect the teacher, should pay his contribution in the most expansive way, his own TIME and ENERGY to serve to guru every day. The disciple should ensure the wellbeing of the guru, physical as well as material. The student should have a correct manner, gratitude, aspiration, sincerity, respect to the teacher and the environment around. The disciple should grow as a person who can take care of ownself. I don’t want to even mention about the Yamas and Niyamas Who cares? Isn't it?
.
The Yoga teacher is also a human being and has its own problems, pains, etc. And he/she never tells about them, but always listen to your problems and sorrows. It is not only about your money but exchanging but rather of energies, learning from each other, respect each other time and commitment.

Unless disciple - YOU - will put effort, nothing will change. Maybe you will do split and headstand, but that will be always the only gymnastics. Maybe that is what you want?

MAYBE IT IS TIME TO LOOK INTO YOURSELF: ARE YOU HONEST WITH YOURSELF, YOUR OWN YOGA?
Where it is all going to?

Introducing our Nayika @kbhakti1 ~When I saw odissi for the first time I knew I wanted to learn it.
I've always liked dancing, and tried many styles when I was younger, like Latin dance, Manipuri, and Bharatnatyam. 
But Odissi has been a way I can use dance in a spiritual way, like an offering to the Lord. 
After a long one year break from dance, I've been slowly getting back in to it.
It hasn't been easy but with the  encouragement and support of my dance sisters is been possible.
I feel so lucky to have the opportunity to share this dance journey with them without their support I wouldn't be here~

Playing on His flute, with blooming eyes like lotus petals, with the figure of beauty tinged with the hue of blue clouds, wearing silken yellow garments as brilliant as lightening resplendent amongst rain clouds, He who is more captivating than millions of Cupids, I worship that Govinda. ~ Adapted from Brahma Samhita 5.30

Confession!

I hated myself for 15years, for leaving behind, ignoring  to my extreme guts, and slamming my one true friend from the past, due to sheer stubbornness and anger I carried within. Not knowing, that you had done nothing, for being treated that way. Yes I was naive, vulnerable and ignorant. But it wasn’t all not fair. 'Dance...', I pledge, I shall not leave you for any sort of leverage I get over you, ever again. 
I ask for forgiveness deep within.
Forgive me for I truly did not have wisdom to understand the profoundity of your existence in my life. I realised only later, perhaps ten years later.

PS - Pallavi Jain and The World Dance School, India, I never say it, but I am going to admit, that, this day has come only because of your faith and your ability to make us have faith in that 'Dance' that may seem forgotten, is actually not! It’s engraved in the memory bank of our lives. Our soul doesn't let the body forget, ever, and I’m a witness to that.

You have given all of us an amazing platform to make a journey back home, to the heart.

I truly were a hundred miles away from home... I'm glad for having started my journey back to home, to my heart, after all.❤️ Please help your inner child live forever. Don’t get messed up in the adult chaos.

Mind will always be a whirlpool of thoughts. Have the wisdom of the heart, to help lead it the way towards the soul, the higher goal.

Liberate.

Love,
Jyothipriya.

Alone ! And I’m really ok with it. I mean...I practice alone, I choreograph alone, I teach alone and I think alone. I’m responsible for my dreams, goals and aspirations and I’m ok with doing all these by myself. I do have people in my support system ; but that support system is outside my world of dance. And I most certainly can’t do without them. But when it comes to dance, it’s me ! I just want to keep going. The joy and pure satisfaction I get with wins, both small and big, is so worth all the walking alone.

Bharatanatyam is hard work. But it’s also magic. Training is slow and meticulous both mentally and physically. Dedicating myself to that journey all the way back from age 6 transformed my artistry in a way that infused my body with expression, confidence, and a capability for telling stories. I stayed with it, pushed myself, and saw the ways dedicated training, committing to something, over the years manifests itself. Honored to have participated in Rukmini Vijaykumar’s Bharatanatyam Masterclass. Thank you @dancerukmini for teaching this special Thillana (even more special it’s in my father’s mother tongue Kannada!) and for teaching an 8 minute dance to us in 6 hours! Grateful for all my training at @kalaikoil @swetha.dixit and the hours and hours poured into the pursuit of dance and passing on the tradition of Bharatanatyam. Always growing in my artistry!

For today’s International Day of Families we share snapshots from backstage at our 2016 festival, where the familial atmosphere of Darbar wonderfully plays out.
.
Darbar uniquely gathers both new and established artists before and during concerts to eat, laugh and listen. Irrespective of caste, creed or ethnicity, we at Darbar are committed to creating a feeling of unity and support.
.
Itself lovingly started by family and friends after the passing of Bhai Gurmit Singh Virdee, Darbar carries forward the important values demonstrated by the great tabla player and teacher. These values are continuously embedded and realised by his son, our Artistic Director, @sandeep.virdee.
.
In a year also marked by the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev Ji, we want to share the following teaching to demonstrate that family unity is located both within and beyond our own: “Accept all humans as your equals, and let them be your only sect.”

Every known traditional culture has types of dance ! People have always danced. There are pictures on pottery and stone which show dances from several thousand years ago in Egypt and Greece. Dance is a form of one’s feelings, whatever those feelings may be. *

~Radharani is also known as Sarva-kanti, which indicates that all beauty and luster rest in Her body. All the Lakshmis derive their beauty from Her. Sarva-kanti also means that all the desires of Lord Krishna rest in Radha. As Lord Krishna enchants the world with His beauty and charm, Sri Radha, on the other hand, enchants Him. If He is the mesmeriser, Madana Mohana, then She is Madana Mohana Mohini; the mesmeriser of the mesmeriser. Sri Radha is the full power, and Lord Krishna is the possessor of full power. Thus, the two are non-different, as the sunshine is non-different from the sun, or as the energy is non-different from the energetic or source of energy~

"All the gopīs in Vṛndāvana remained very morose on account of Kṛṣṇa's absence. All day they were thinking of Kṛṣṇa in the forest or of Him herding cows in the pasture. When they saw Kṛṣṇa returning, all their anxieties were immediately relieved, and they began to look at His face the way drones hover over the honey of the lotus flower. When Kṛṣṇa entered the village, the young gopīs smiled and laughed. Kṛṣṇa, while playing the flute, enjoyed the beautiful smiling faces of the gopīs."

This never gets old ! This Jatiswaram was one of the first jatiswarams I learnt as a kid. It’s amazing how some pieces that were ingrained in you decades ago still stays with you - the choreography, the Bhava, the Anga Shuddam - and more importantly the love for the piece ! *

Navapallava Festival.
An initiative to promote young talented artists and raise a voice againt the pay and perform trend that is becoming too rampart. 
I was witness yesterday to an evening to some amazing performances. 
The music that flowed from the Sarangi of Sandeep Mishra was simply ethereal.  His music masterfully brought an experience that was  dynamic yet soothing lingered. Odissi performer Biswajit Das gave powerful performance. 
And the finale was a magnificent performance in Kathak by a young dancer Nikita Banawalikar. She falls into the category of 'not to be missed' performers of the young generation. Absolute command over idiom yet not over riding it was an totaly impressive quality to have for that age. So also her co-performers,whose names I donot have, on Tabla, harmonium and vocal were artists in their own right who nees to be seen the performing arena. 
An evening of absolutely stunning performances still lingers in my mind as I read this post.  A great thanks to Uma Dogra ji, Sam Ved Society for Preforming Arts, Sangeet Mahabharati, Pt. Nayan Ghosh ji for supporting initiative. And Askok Jain ji for initiating this. I am sure many of us will take this forth and give the young artists the dignity that they deserve.

The music that flowed from the Sarangi of Sandeep Mishra was simply ethereal. His music masterfully brought an experience that was dynamic yet soothing lingered. Odissi performer Biswajit Das gave powerful performance.
And the finale was a magnificent performance in Kathak by a young dancer Nikita Banawalikar. She falls into the category of 'not to be missed' performers of the young generation. Absolute command over idiom yet not over riding it was an totaly impressive quality to have for that age. So also her co-performers,whose names I donot have, on Tabla, harmonium and vocal were artists in their own right who nees to be seen the performing arena.
An evening of absolutely stunning performances still lingers in my mind as I read this post. A great thanks to Uma Dogra ji, Sam Ved Society for Preforming Arts, Sangeet Mahabharati, Pt. Nayan Ghosh ji for supporting initiative. And Askok Jain ji for initiating this. I am sure many of us will take this forth and give the young artists the dignity that they deserve.

Artist Meera George speaks about her upcoming operatic performance Monday May 13 at 6.30 pm - Still I Rise commissioned for the Shalini Passi Art Foundation is curated by Dr Arshiya Lokhandwala. 
The performance takes place at the Alliance Francaise De, M.L.Bhartia Auditorium, Delhi.  Meera George is known for her dramatic installation and performance artworks. In her latest piece, Still I Rise, she addresses the centuries old tradition of her native homeland, Kerala. Alluding to the traditional nuances of Kathakali, Kalari and Chavittu Nadakam, George weaves a short operatic narrative of four acts involving similar traditions from Japan, Influenced during her stint as a resident artist at the Fukuoka Asian Art Museum. 
The artist addresses the well-pronounced caste hierarchies of then Travancore, where the women, were disallowed from covering their upper body, wear jewelry or clean clothing. Attire and adornments served the purpose of acting as caste indicators so that pollution through sight, touch and proximity could be ruled out. The artist invokes the spirit of the many unsung heroines of her land, and pays tribute to their strength and valor, in the fight for gender and caste equality. Her performance is a testament of the evolved times, however, she questions how much really has changed in the 200 summers that followed. Reflecting the performing traditions of both cultures, primarily dominated by the stronger sex, George challenges this pattern of patriarchy and brings with her an all-girl troupe to perform ‘Still I Rise.’A special thanks to the girls of the NGO Protsahan India Foundation, with whom the artist worked closely to create this operatic performance.
