Obit/Tribute - Mrinalini Sarabhai (May 11, 1918 - Jan 21, 2016) - Ashish Mohan Khokar


Born to the most illustrious family of Ammu Swaminathan, Mrinalini Sarabhai was most low key about her high pedigree and station in life.
It was Santiniketan that shaped her interest in art (Indira Gandhi was her hostel mate!) and she then learnt Bharatanatyam properly from two greats - Guru Muthukumara Pillai of Kattumannarkoil, Chidambaram and Guru Meenakshi Sundaram Pillai of Pandanallur. She partnered Ram Gopal and won world acclaim before marrying eminent scientist Vikram Sarabhai, from whom she has two children Kartikeya and Mallika Sarabhai.
