Center stage

At last night’s benefit performance of Indian classical dance by the students and teacher at my daughter’s dance school, Naatya Ranga Performing Arts, all the young dancers’ talent and hard work delighted a packed auditorium. Poetry took the stage, too, with poets Meerabai and Andal serving as inspiration for two of the dances. I wish someone would post their videos of the performances on YouTube already! In the meantime, here’s a window into one of my favorite Indian films, Meera, a Tamil film from 1945, starring M.S. Subbulakshmi as our poet-heroine.
