    Today we attended the performance at K.H Kalasoudha,Ramanjeneya Gudda, Bangalore. It was one of the wonderful performance by Madhuri Upadyaya, Geetha Ballal, Akash Vodera and Subhash Menon.Out of three dance picies performed,I liked the Dashavatara performance the most.The dance was really a blend of Bhava,Tala, Raaga and Natya.The abhinaya and the Mudra shown by the performers was just outstanding. The quick chaning of steps,bending the body like creepers added lusture and crown to the world of Natya. The mystic manifestation was presented really well.

    Suggestion: Out of 10 avataras of Lord Vishnu only some have been narrated. I request you to give a small title before the manifestation of that Natya depicting the vatara begings.

    Once again thanks for arranging such a wonderfull show and showers of gods blessings to the performers and Chriralekha Bolar for preseting the greatest and auspicious epic in terms of Natya. I wish you all the best.
