" Dance keeps me rooted and gives me inner strength and clarity in this fast paced world. It is a journey to evoke the deeper aspects of life, giving a purpose to my existence. However, I am only a medium giving a visual form to moods, music, sculptures, literature, and philosophies, involving my audience into these experiences.
I strive to retain authenticity in traditions and techniques and yet evolve to remain relevant. Intrigued by Mother Nature, I am her captivated audience, observing her creativity, beauty and splendor. The interplay of colors, rhythm of seasons, diverse life forms fascinates and aspires me to create productions that raises awareness and respect for our environment.
My endeavor is to implement my Guru's vision to reach out with the beauty, depth and grandeur of Odissi with humility and compassion."
