On the eve of Republic Day 2015, I performed with the Natyavriksha Dance Company and an accomplished team of dancers in honour of Michelle and Barack Obama at the Rashtrapati Bhavan. President Pranab Mukherjee was the host of the evening and the programme was attended by PM Narendra Modi, several Cabinet Ministers and a constellation of dignitaries from the fields of politics, sports, entertainment, education and business.
The programme was curated and presented by Seher, headed by Sanjeev Bharagava. We presented an excerpt from ‘Sankriti’, a collaborative performance of five classical dance styles directed by Madhavi Mudgal. The esteemed audience enjoyed the show immensely and we got a ‘thumbs up’ from President Obama as he exclaimed “Great job!”
