Sujata Mohapatra's legendary guru got her married to his son. Among all the awards she's gotten, there's no doubting which one is the highest.

Parampara, on the occasion of its 10th anniversary, is organising the Abhinaya Sudha 2006, a festival highlighting the expressional aspect of Indian dance traditions, from 1st to 3rd December. Six renowned dancers will perform the six dance forms of India: Kuchipudi, Bharatanatyam, Mohini Attam, Kathak, Odissi and Vilasini Natyam.

Today, Sujata Mohapatra will be presenting an Odissi dance recital at the Bhaskara Auditorium of the B M Birla Science Centre. Sujata Mohapatra is an accomplished and versatile artiste of Odissi from Bhubaneshwar. She is the daughter-in-law and disciple of the leading exponent of Odissi, the legendary Late Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra, having trained under him for 18 years. She has also undergone training at the Odissi Research Centre at Bhabaneshwar. Currently, she is under the guidance of her husband Ratikanth Mohapatra.

She is the leading dancer and the Principal of Srjan, the dance school established by her Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra. She has a Masters Degree in Oriya Literature from the Utkal University, Bhubaneshwar. She has toured many countries like Germany, UK, Canada, Belguim, USA, Malaysia and Italy.

In recognition of her services to Odissi, she has been conferred upon various awards, like the Pandit Jasraj Award in 2000, the Baisakhi Award in 2000, the Hope Of India award in 2001, the Nruthya Ragini award at Puri in 2004 and the 2nd Sanyukta Panigrahi Award at Washington in 2002.

Through Abhinaya Sudha, Parampara tries to explore the many dimensions of the expressional element in Indian dance traditions. With expansive dancing becoming the order of the modern day, a very important aspect of Indian Classical dance, saattvikaabhinaya, or dance which comes from and deals with the matters of the heart and soul, is probably being neglected, making people lose out on the aesthetics of the portrayal of myriad moods and sentiments.

As a step in highlighting this abhinaya, Parampara and its director Sanjay Kumar Joshi, a renowned dancer himself, will be showcasing a galaxy of illustrious dancers in several dance traditions of India. Besides, there will be lectures with demonstrations on the various aspects of abhinaya by some expert dancers.
