Kuchipudi and Odissi at Kamani Auditorium, Delhi

I had 4 days in Delhi on the way home from Varanasi, and attended a beautiful - and free! - dance program at one of Delhi's premier venues, the Kamani Auditorium, with Kuchipudi dancer Yamini Reddy and Odissi dancer Madhavi Mudgal. I had never seen Kuchipudi before. It's quite similar to Bharat Natyam although seems a little more flexible and wide-ranging. I was quite impressed.

Reaching divine realisation through erotic love for Krishna

I really liked this way of having the ceremonial lamp as a scenic prop

This is one of the biggest tour groups I've seen for one dancer!
