SHARADOTSAV (MAHA RAAS LEELA) – NRITYA NATIKA in Kathak and Brindaban Braj Raas Style on the auspicious occasion of SHARAD PURNIMA.
This is based on 10th chapter of SHRIMAD BHAGWAD. We had been inspired by Late Smt. Kamla Devi Chattopadhyay to undertake this culture venture more than Three decades ago. The production is the culmination of extensive research and authentic imbibing of the Brindaban Braj Raas under expert Gurus in the art. We have been holding this Dance Ballet for the past 38 years and this has been a much awaited 3 days cultural event of the capital and entry is absolutely free and I may add that people look forward to this programme and attend in large numbers.
Uma Sharma, the renowned Kathak exponent has done pioneering research work on the “Raas” dance and drama of Brindaban. Over a decade ago she studied the technique under the guidance of Pt. Ladli Sharan Sharma the octogenarian authority on the style. She has now evolved a fine blend of Kathak and Raas Leela for her annual presentation of Maha Raas at “Sharad Utsav”.
This year we will be presenting the programme on 5th, 6th & 7th October, 2017 at the Lawn of Lakshmi Narayan Temple (Birla Mandir) from 6:30 pm onwards.
I will be grateful if you can cover this cultural progarmme in your Newspaper/Magazine about “MAHA RAAS LEELA SHARADOTSAV”.
