Vasanthi Hariprakash | Madhu Nataraj Heri | Anitha Rathnam
Chowdaiah Memorial Hall at Malleswaram had a dance event put up by the Stem Dance Kampni. It was a wonderful well put together show, except the teething problems in the technical department. All that was forgotten when i saw the lovely Vasanthi Hariprakash. I miss her on the radio.
The chief guest at the venue for the day was Justice Santosh Hegde. A simple man, who gave many a nightmare to Indian politicians.
I didnt catch the name of the first dance. But i recognised that it was Kathak with a touch of Flamenco. Madhu Natraj, the Founder - Director of Natya Stem Dance Kampni, also the choreographer, put on a fabulous performance with her troupe.

The last piece was again by Madhu and her troupe, Vajra. A contemporary dance showcasing the martial arts in dance form. Am not a huge dance aficionado, but the dance mesmerised me. You had to be there to believe me. when it was over i was a bit dazed from it. Wished there was an encore.
But the evening had ended, votes of thanks given and people felicitated. I went home happy.
