This is Smt. Indira Rajan and follows the Pandanallur style. I Sunil Kothari's book says that she is the cousin of K.N. Danadayuthapani Pillai (K.J Sarasa is his niece).
She has also accompanied Alarmelu Valli at earlier times. She taught at Krishna Gana Sabha in the 80's. Not sure if the classes are continuing.

In all the images of ANDAL I have seen, and all dancers who put on the koNDai, it is placed on the right; this is the first time I am seeing it on the left - does it have any significance, can it be placed on either side, or is it just a goof-up in this instance?

Andal has the chaya kondai on the right and Meenakshi on the left..
Specific significance I am not aware, perhaps establishing the identity I guess.
Incidentally this may be the reason why Iyengar brides wear the kondai on the right and the Iyers if they do use it on the left on their weddings.

Ravi, Rasikaas,

Here is another AnDAL kauthuvam with the kondai on the left...

In the temples, it is always on the right.

@rshankar: You mean the kondai is always worn on audience's right which is the dancer's left.
@ rasikaas: I dont think the kondais on meenakshi and andal are on different sides.
andal

meenakshi
http://www.google.com/images?um=1&hl=en ... =&gs_rfai=

As far as i know, the feminine side has always been the left.(I am not sure why women sit in the right at wedding. maybe thats because its their day :D) The sun, moon head jewellery worn by dancers, its made sure the moon is always the left. In ardhanarishwara, parvathy is always on the left. In mohiniattam, the kondai is always worn on the dancers left. So, technically all kondais are worn on the left. I think its just a goof up in other cases.

An old one, Ganesh Chaturthi special - love the very lively dancer's expressions, her grace in every movement, impressive dance and the singer. I feel Ganesha is a difficult one to perform - most mimic his chubbiness and gait in an almost mocking sort of way - here the dancer is exceptional by making it seem so Divine and beautiful with her mudras and abhinaya.

A bhajan in behAg (?), possibly bhakt mIrA's - 'dAsi mIrA bandhi pag ghunghrU lOk lAj taji nAci' - the musician has done a lovely job of weaving in ciTTasvarams.

S-P - Madhu is indeed a very talented young girl - I had reviewed another performance of hers before. I think the link to Sankara Sri giri in your post is not the right one...The choreography is her mother's - and showcases the pandanallUr style.

rshankar, I have corrected the link for Madhumita Parmar's Shankara Sri Giri in my post above. Thanks for the pointer to the very nice review plus the links to baiyyAn nA dharo and hEy gObind by Madumita - the girl is superb. Such maturity in her tender years!
