Praising the goddess

It is as if one seeing the goddess herself, with all her glory. As Anita Ratnam, the famous Bharatanatyam dancer presents the ‘Sindhooraruna’ composition, it is a divine experience for the viewers. The composition belongs to Lalita Sahasra Namam, a text with verses in praise of the goddess.

Originated in Tamil Nadu, Bharatanatyam is a 2000 year-old art form and has gone through different ages of development. It has roots in the principles of Natya Sastra, the classical treatise on Indian dance by Sage Bharata. The dance combines the elements of the abstract and the emotional through its fusion of nritta (rhythm) and nritya (expression).
