Did you know that if you utter "Rama" one crore times you apparently actually
get to see the Lord? If the deeper question though is why should you want to
see Rama, then here's something for you.
Apollo Hospitals, to mark its foray into cultural activities, is presenting
one of Kalakshetra's most popular dance ballets, Valmiki Ramayan, for 3 days.
Done in association with Rasa, this musical dance drama will describe the story
of Lord Rama from the Ayodhya Kanda to Rama's coronation.
Kalakshetra's students trained by the eminent danseuse Ananda Shankar Jayant
will present the program on all the days. This aesthetic dance production was
performed earlier at various prestigious festivals and venues all over the world,
and was well received by audiences.
The dance drama was originally choreographed and directed by the legendary (late)
Rukmini Devi Arundale (Padma Bhushan awardee). Some portions choreographed by
her, Jatayu Moksham, Choodamani Pradanam and Maha Pattabhishekam, will be staged
on these days. Mysore Vasudevachariar and Rajaram will compose the music. Please
contact Ananda Shankar Jayant at 354-8862/354-2378 for further details.
