Welcome to the first in a series
of intimate first -person sharings from dancer daughters.
and determined women take time to acknowledge the
contribution their mothers
made in the shaping and making of their dance careers. As
with all mothers,
the supervision went much further than the dance studio and
Meenakshi Chittaranjan, Bharatanatyam
dancer and guru, inaugurates our monthly column on the women
us who stood by us until the end... our mothers!
Enjoy and send us your comments.
