PS does a lot of comedy at ease which always amuses me. Notice how the rakshasas are shown to be born out of Vishnus earwax :D

Does anyone know what the rakta beeja hare Sanchari is about?

Alarmel Valli Interview. She is very correct in saying a lot of choreographies now a days do not emphasize of the difficult but essential Natyarambham and include a lot of diagonal movements which are both easy and derived from other form of dances.

Thanks for posting Valli's video. She is so articulate and always a pleasure to watch.

Yes.. Madhu and Kaitabha are born from the earwax of Vishnu. Vishnu kills them and makes earth from their skin. This is the story I was told and watched in plays/yaksha ganas when I was a kid.

I didn't watch Padma Subramaniam's video. But according to the story I was told - Raktha (meaning blood) beeja (meaning seed) asura was in the court of two Asura kings called Shumbha and Nishumbha. They send him to fight Devi when she refuses to marry one of them. Every time his blood is spilled onto the floor several new Raktha beejasuras are born. So Devi becomes Raktheswari and covers the earth with her tongue. When Raktha beeja's blood spills it spills onto the tounge and never touches the floor thus stopping new Raktha beejas from forming. And devi kills him in the fight.

KSL - Thank you for that lovely clip. As I said in my review of her performance, I love to watch and hear her speak almost as much as I enjoy her dancing! She is so elegantly eloquent. Here is to wishing her many, many more years of creating 'modern/contemporary poetry'!

An old link, but I found it very interesting when I first listened to it. I think it will make sense to many of the children here who are learning to dance with various degrees of committment.

Hi,

Thanks for the link which had Ms. Alarmel Valli's interview. It was very good.
She spoke about her teacher who had vast knowledge and how much she gained being his student. She is indeed blessed.

When you notice, there are too many dancers who run dance schools. They may be people with lots of knowledge which they gained from their gurus. But tell me how many dancers actually have time to share this with their disciples now? They are so busy performing programs are organising some programs that they do not find time to even handle class.

Almost all teachers these days have staff members who teach dance for the students. So where is the question of the main teacher coming in picture here? They are busy and handle classes mainly for their senior students. I know of teachers who may not be so popular but still have staff teacher to teach for the students. It is because they have too many students and the teacher is busy with other work and may not find time to teach. She teaches only her senior students.

So where is the question of the teacher sharing her knowledge comes in picture here. She may share it with only her senior students.

I think only in Kalashetra they give importance to all this(which is so good and i think the students are very lucky) and they learn so much theory. Not all dance school does all this.

Infact I know of one of my friends who learnt dance for more then 18years and is not comfortable with lot of technical terms in bharatnatyam. Infact her guru is a very famous guru.

So I think people like Alarmel valli was lucky to be under wonderful guru. In the present generation many of us have to learn lot of things by reading a lot. I think good that we have forums like this(which is wonderful and many of us like me learn a lot) and i am sure we do a lot of search on the internet to enrich our knowledge.

I think rasikas forum is a wonderful and very informative site and people like Shankar, KSL and many others are very knowledgable and share a lot with everyone(which many people don't do).

Thanks for helping us out with our queries and sharing your ideas and knowledge with us.

This is just my view and not meant to hurt anybody.

Interesting concept, but the narration and titles are, to be kind, crazy - bharatanATyam mainly depicts the love of Siva and pArvati, huh?

Does pancAshaT mean 51?

This one is lovely!
