On the occasion of Durga Puja celebrations from 15th to 21st October, the Bangiya Sanskritik Sangha of Secunderabad is organising an Odissi recital by Dona Ganguly and group, on 17th October, at the Keyes Girls High School.

Dona Roy Ganguly is famously known as "Mrs. Sourav Ganguly" around the world, and comes from a well-known Bengali family that lives next door in a yellow-colored building next to Sourav's red one. She was a well-known Odissi dancer even before her marriage to Sourav.

Dona began to learn classical dance from Amala Shankar, wife of world famous Kathak dancer Uday Shankar. The turning point in Dona's dancing career came when she shifted to Odissi under the guidance of Guru Giridhari Nayak. The most significant development, however, was the encounter with Guru Kelucharan Mahapatra, one of the greatest exponents of Odissi.

Dona has performed several times in the USA and UK. She received a number of awards for her outstanding performance. The most prestigious day in her career as an Odissi dancer was when Frank M Jordan, the Mayor of San Francisco city, declared July 8, 1995, as "Dona Roy Day". She has been accepted as an Honorary Citizen of Metropolitan Nasville, Memphis, and also of Shelby Country Tennessee.

She is an 'A' grade artist and a regular performer of Calcutta Doordarshan. She now runs a yoga, dance and music center called "Diksha" where she herself teaches Odissi dance.

The entry is free for everyone. Please contact Bangiya Sanskritik Sangha at 2750-8298 for further details.
