TRENDING by Ashish Mohan Khokar - Make in India! Dance

Make in India! That's major focus now. And on Feb 13th, as the PM with 5 other PMs (of other countries), inaugurates this huge focus on India, what’s the dance component? Forget all the Padmashris and self tom-tommed great ones with big names and titles. It is two sisters under 35 from Bangalore - Mayuri and Madhuri Upadhya - through their group Nritarutya that has been commissioned to choreograph the Opening Ceremony in an Ammchi Mumbai stadium. 85 dancers, drawn from Pune, Chennai, Delhi and of course its main company Nritarutya from Bangalore. Watch it live on most channels that day and I’m sure later for eternity, on social media. This shows where real talent lies and counts. Chennai is not. Delhi is not. Bombay is not. Not a single choreographer or dance company from any of these big cities, just good old simple Bangalore.
