The story of this Koya girl shows how the Lord always responds to selfless devotion. If you look to the Lord when in trouble, it's not selfless. That should explain everything.
Shilparamam, as part of the Dussehra festivities, is organising a Kuchipudi dance recital by students of Annamacharya Vignana Peetham, on 3rd October. Kartika, Baby Kalyani, Harini, Diva, Gouri, Tulasi Parveen and Sujitha will start the recital with a 45-minute Kuchipudi dance ballet, Poojaphalam, which shows Lord Krishna pleased with the devotion and dedication of a Koya girl.
It also depicts sequences leading to the main ballet, like young Krishna playing with the gopikas and his mother Yashoda, grazing cows in the field and working with the Koya girl by carrying her basket on his head and venturing into the jungles.
Following the ballet, there will be a couple of solo performances of Venkateswara Brahmotsavam, Tarangam, Janapada Geyam and Annamayya Keerthanas.
The ballet is directed by Palleti Lakshmi Kula Shekhar, and the orchestra for the dance comprises Nattuvangam by Ramanjaneyulu, vocal by Shankaramma, tabla by Anand and Casio Keyboard by Anjaneyulu.
Annamacharya Vignana Peetham was established by Alluri Venkatayya in 1998. Venkatayya is a retired servant of the A P Irrigation Department, and also the secretary of Savera Arts, a Nandi-Award winning association. To impart musical education to the people of the backward district of Kadapa, he founded the institution, and has appointed teachers to teach instrumental music, vocal and Kuchipudi.
The students of the institute have given various performances in many towns of Andhra Pradesh, including temples of Kadapa district, Hyderabad, Vijayawada and Ananthapur, and also in Bangalore.
