Charan Das: Fountainhead of Orissi
July 7, 2010
Dear Ashish Sir,
I am a big fan of your work, especially
the Dance History Column that is featured in narthaki.com 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.
