Manmohana – Group Antara

by devaniya on February 9, 2017

The last piece of the evening’s ensemble, was presented once more by group Antara.

It is important to say a few words about the dancers in this group. Their learning at Devaniya has been one of steady growth and hard work over the past 8 years for some, and 6 years for the rest. This group comprises of just 6 dancers, which goes to show how much dedication and passion for the art it takes to stick in there and give of yourself despite all other commitments in life. One of these 6, Ms. keerthana is at present in Paris pursuing an advanced course in Architecture. She will be back soon. Three of them – Swetha Sundararajan, Shankari and Avani Giri are now dedicated teachers at Devaniya. Ashmini Balakrishnan handles a huge chunk of the administrative side of Devaniya – all this, besides having their own independent carriers. The last one, Ms. Avani Maroo is in the 10th std, and in the midst of her pre boards…yet, here she was ….dancing gloriously….

I hope that in the years to come we will have many more Devaniyans forming core groups.

Mira bai…the epitome of love & devotion. When she sang her Lord’s praise she sang with abandon and complete surrender of the self.
Drown yourselves in these mesmerizing pictures as 3 dancers play the evolution of Meera from queen to wanderer to saint.

Thanks for the brilliant photography Supraja Srinivasan, Ganesh AND Ranjith!
