Obit / Tribute - Kalanidhi Naryanan (1928-2016)- Ashish Mohan Khokar

She was universally known as Maami. As though the word was her name. In Madras dance circles, this name stood for Kalanidhi Narayanan (1928-2016) and for no other ordinary maami of Mylapore or Mambalam. She was the quintessential dance aunty, teacher, friend, guru.  She was amiable, affable and admirable. Amiable to all, affable to many and admirable because she didn’t dance for half her life professionally but when she returned to stage, even if for abhinaya items, she made a huge impact.
