Exposure to Odissi at MRV
It was a proud moment on 12th February 2015 when Ms Sujata Mohapatra, India’s pride and an exponent of Odissi dance along with her disciples Ms. Mishra and Mr. Basu, gave a lecture cum demonstration under the auspices of SPICMACAY - Society for Promotion of Indian Classical Music and Culture Amongst Youth.
Ms. Sujata Mohapatra who is deeply involved in teaching Odissi, is also the Principal of 'Srjan' (Odissi Nrityabasa), a prime Odissi Dance Institution founded by Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra. Ms Sujata Mahopatra, a disciple of Guru Kelucharan Mahapatra, was kind enough to be with MRVites for more than an hour and a half, teaching in a play-learn method the complicated Mudras depicting the Holy Trinity of Hinduism , celestial musical instruments and the vehicle of Saraswati - the peacock.
It was an enriching experience for the MRV students.
