On the occasion of its annual Brahmotsavam celebrations, the Sri Ranganatha Swamy Mandir at Nanakramguda is organising a festival of music and dance, from 13th to 20th February. The 8-day festival will feature temple and classical dances, and music, in addition to the daily rituals. Today, the 2nd day, the disciples of Guru Rohini Bhate will perform a Kathak recital.

Rohini Bhate started learning Kathak in 1946. Her initial training was under Sohanlal of the Jaipur gharana. Thereafter she received training under Mannalal of Mumbai and Mohan Rao Kalyanpurkar of Lucknow. She practised Kathak hard for years, and performed under the direction of Lachhu Maharaj and Mohanrao Karyanpurkar, and settled down in Pune. She has refined her technique by studying deeply old scriptures relating to Indian dances and drama.

In 1952, she was selected to visit China as a member of Indian cultural delegation. She has composed a number of dance dramas in the Kathak style, and has also written a number of articles on the subject of dance, and two books in Marathi. In 1977, the Rashtriya Sangeet Natak Academy honored her for creative work in the field of dance. She also received the Kalidas Samman in 2001.

The Sri Ranganatha Swamy Temple is situated in Rangbagh, near Nanakramguda, and is estimated to be over 350 years old. The temple is the first and only active temple of the present day which has re-aligned rituals of worship with traditional dance. This bold initiative was taken in 1996, and marked the beginning of the new chapter of Indian dance.
