Sneha Chakradhar

Arangetram, 1st October 2000

18 years ago on Ganesh Chaturthi, I presented my Arangetram (debut performance)under Kalaimamani Lt. Guru K.N. Dakshinamurthy, and his youngest daughter Veenu Dakshinamurthy. Looking back now, I was so fortunate to receive the blessings of such stalwarts, who lovingly came to grace the occasion. Former President of India Lt. Shri R. Venkataraman, eminent poet and politician Lt. Shri Balkavi Bairagi and legendary sarod maestro Ustad Amjad Ali Khan Sahab were the guests of honour, who were joined by a houseful of artists, poets, friends and family in showering this young lady, making her humble entry into the world of Indian classical dance, with all their love and appreciation. It was one of the biggest events of my life and I’m sharing these moments with a lot of gratitude to all those who have been a part of this beautiful journey with me… especially my parents Ashok and Bageshri Chakradhar.
