Guru Pankaj Charan Das: Fountainhead of Orissi

Dear Ashish Sir,

I am a big fan of your work, especially the Dance History Column that is featured in every month. Penning the old masters' history to a format that this generation understands, helps not only to make the master's name immortal but it immensely benefits a student of dance, like myself, to appreciate the struggle and understand their life's importance. 
In this regard, I would request you to kindly post an article about Guru Nana Kasar who taught Bharatanatyam at Triveni, New Delhi. I am asking this since there is negligible information in the web about him. Everyone, including myself, would benefit a lot to know about his contribution to Bharatanatyam in the capital. I hope you would consider my request.

Thanks and kind regards,

Read your article on Guru Pankaj Charan Das. As usual, very nice and an insight about the artiste. The only thing that crossed my mind while reading it was, that most of the male gurus had a tough journey and in spite of all this, they served the art community. Today if they are talked about, I think it is their honesty and no expectations service to this wonderful art form that has made them the GURUS to reckon with.
Thank you once again.
