  1. What humility, amazing human being, how lucky to have been influenced by stalwarts and what a full life!! May his legacy continue..God bless.

  2. I met sir & watch his performance at Ahmadabad during the workshop organised by Gujarat Sangeet Natak academy on 17th sept, 2011. I was speechless & almost full of awe for his kindness, loving nature, teaching method of any topic, energy at the age of 78, & above all the aesthetics & philosophy towards the classical dance. How highly classified form like Bharatnatyam can be made contemporary within its own format of grammar & made available to people for understanding can be learned through sir's great compositions. We are fortunate to have such people married to dance & music. I am thankful to Sir & madam for devoting their lives to Dance & music.
