Bharata Natyam, the most popular classical Indian dance-form, has received universal approbation as one of the subtlest expressions of Indian culture. It is performed according to the most delicate nuances of a musical piece, or a poem, through the vehicle of a body. Its intimate connection with the temple, as a ritualistic art, mirroring the imperceptible feelings of a devotee reflects the inwardness of Hindu culture. The present revised edition captures the rhythms and beauty of an integral art in a visually exciting and fascinating manner. This volume also contains an overview of the legendary and present-day exponents of Bharata Natyam. With contributions from Mulk Raj Anand, Rukmini Devi, Padma Subrahmanyam, and P. Sambamurthy.
