After a season of heavy dance dramas and theme performances, Ananda Shankar Jayanth's solo 'marga' mode of Bharatanatyam came as a relief. In a leisurely mode accompanied by four musicians, the dancer ritually entered with a brief 'Pushpanjali', followed by a vibrant composition by Madurai Krishnan.

Ananda built up the tempo of the dance by describing the goddess as the one with eighteen arms, a thousand eyes and a thousand names. Clad in thick red, the vivacious looking dancer further chose to elaborate a traditional Varnam, all in over 45 minutes. This Tadi Varnam is a famous composition of the Tanjore Quartet, and is in praise of Rajagopala. "I have fallen in love with you and your beautiful form, accept my loveā€¦," the heroine prays, all struck by the Cupid's arrows.

The intermittent Jathi syllables composed by Adayar Gopinath were perfectly executed by the dancer, with split second precision and poise. Meera Bhajans in Misra Malkauns alleviated the Varnam's deep impact, while 'Dikku Teriyade Katil', Subramaniyam Bhartiya's timeless classic, illustrated the love of a Nayika for Krishna. In this, she is the 'Abhisarika Nayika' who searches for Krishna in the forests only to get lost. This number further has beautiful descriptions of woods, streams, flowers and fruits, animals and birds.

The conclusion was in a philosophical mood, through the Geetopadesham in Ekaharya - Arjuna, on seeing his kith and kin lined up against him in the battlefield of Kurukshetra, refuses to fight. And then there is Krishna's immortal preaching. Ananda was excellent in her expressions. Mamatha Madireddy provided the Nattuvangam support, while vocalist Venu Madhav, percussionist Balasubramaniam and violinist Sai Kumar supported from the wings.
