Impressive performance

T. MADHUSUDANA RAO

Urmila Satyanarayana danced her way into the audience hearts with her style and charm.

Urmila Satyanarayanan, the Bharatanatyam exponent from Chennai gave an impressive performance at the Sri Ramakrishna Public School and Ashram Public School under the auspices of the SPIC-MACAY (Society for Promotion of Indian Classical Music and Culture amongst Youth), Kakinada chapter. The danseuse stole the hearts of the students and senior citizens among the audience by dexterity in her hand gestures, agility in her movements and her cheerful countenance. She excelled in both angikam and abhinayam.

After Pushpanjali, in Adenamma harudu, her expression of navarasas in quick succession was marvellous. In Muddugare Yasoda, an Annamayya composition, her portrayal of Vatsalya Rasa as seen in Yasoda's love for lord Krishna and the posture of Ananthapadmanabha were excellent.

The Advaita tattvam that antharatma is parabrahma was well brought about in Annamayya's Brahmamokkate. She concluded with a tillana and mangalam. Urmila was ably assisted on the nattuvangam and vocals by S.K. Suresh, the mridangam was by B.P. Haribabu and flute by V.R. Sivakumar.
