This show was directed by Anupama Hoskere with commentary in English for each scene. Divya Hoskere is a stunning dancer, her beautifully expressive face clearly announced a character’s feelings or intent while her body easily shifts through complicated rhythms and balances cleverly. All in the audience enjoyed this mesmerizing show and gave a standing ovation to the artists.

Sanjay Kaul, national vice president, World Hindu Council of America proposed a vote of thanks to all the performers, VHPA’s team members, SAC program director, and other SAC members.
