The most pristine way to celebrate the navaratis is to be good. The good news is, watching Kuchipudi qualifies.

Solo and group dance items will be presented by V Jayanthi Narayana and her disciples, namely Lakshmi, Tulasi, Roshni and Apurva. Jayanthi will be performing the solo Kuchipudi item of Annamacharya Keertana, while she along with her disciples will do the Vinaaka Koutvam, Jayadeva Ashtapadi, Saraswati Keertana and finally the Thillana.
