Tuesday, 31 January 2012 04:09

The Russian Centre of Science and Culture presented a gala cultural programme entitled “Kathak without Borders” to mark the 63rd Anniversary of the Republic Day of India on January 25, 2012. The function was held within the framework of the 65th Anniversary of the Establishment of Diplomatic Relations between Russia and India.p>

Literally, the cultural programme is a gift from the artists of CIS Countries to the people of India on the occasion of the two historic dates mentioned above. The participants were Pt. Kalinath Mishra, Pt. Rajendra Chaturvedi, Raksha Singh David, Svetlana Milovanova, Natalia Dits, Kriventsovea Mariya, Irina Biryukova, Elisha Deep, Galiya Akhmetova and Bahtiyorjon. Major Dalbir Singh, Secretary, All-India Congress Secretary and Mr. Sergei Karmalito, Senior Counsellor, Embassy of the Russian Federation in India, formed part of the large gathering to witness the colourful function. The audience was overwhelmed by the spectacular presentation of Kathak dance numbers by the exponent Pt. Rajendra Chaturvedi accompanied by the amazing Tabla performance by Pt. Kalinath Mishra, one of the foremost table-players. The performance by Raksha Singh David, too, one of the promising Kathak dancers of the Indian Kathak scenario, was indeed memorable.

Svetlana Milovanova, who learned Bharatnatyam from Akmaral Kainazarova and Kathak from Renu Bassi Kazakhistan, made the gathering spell-bound with her excellent performance. Natalia Dits who learnt Kathak in Russia under Guru Shri Ashwani Nigam, and presently in India through an ICCR scholarship showed her worth in Kathak. Kriventsova Mariya, learning under Guru Ram Mohan, and Irina Biryukova, now having training under Pt. Birju Maharaj, did justice to the art of Kathak with their momentous performance. Galia Akhmetova and Bahtiyorjon, who learnt Kathak in Kazakhistan and Uszbekistan, respectively, and now continuing to learn the art in India, proved their mettle through impressive performance.
