The name Shankars’ had been very close to our family.. and seeing Mamata Shankar perform was like an achievement in itself. And another person, I was looking forward to was Amrita di. I have been listening of her from my elder sister for almost 13+ years now.. but today I saw her perform.
Coming to the Dance. The theme had been of humanity, about life… about atma- or the soul, about how a kid grows up clinging to its mothers’ emotions.. grows up without complexity with its mother’s smile, playing hide-n-seek with emotions.. only for the mother to discover that her child has grown up. While the child grows up, it makes friends with out a second thought, loving them from the core of the heart… slowly they understand the difference between genders… slowly but gradually matures into a man or a lady. But with age.. experience comes.. the true heart and love starts getting replaced by wishes, expectations and arrogance. It forms the root of destruction – war and death, of people one loves. Humanity hung its head in shame.. slowly, what they discovered is the beam of light. The Light of truth, the truth that we all are the part of one soul and that we should try to be as close to the soul as possible.
