My passion for Odissi ensued when I happened to watch Guru Bedi’s ”Desh Raag” first time on television. I loved Guru Prothima Gouri Bedi’s mesmerizing performance and above all, I loved the melodious music. The graceful beauty of the dance and the sweetened devotional undertone warmed a chord in me.
Embracing Indian culture with candid affection and respect, I established the Odissi dance school “Rudra Nrithyayogashala” in 2006 in Mysuru, Karnataka to spread Indian classical dance and culture through Odissi.
I have devoted my life to Odissi, I consider it as my prayer to the almighty. I always enjoyed the world of dance which is a creative relief. I feel that dance is the best way to convey emotions .
“Dance is your pulse, your heartbeat, your breathing. It’s the rhythm of your life. It’s the expression in time and movement, in happiness, joy, sadness and envy.” – Jaques D’Ambroise
