Interview - Aruna Mohanty on Dhauli – Kalinga Mahotsav by Nita Vidyarthi

Acclaimed Odissi dancer, teacher and choreographer Guru Aruna Mohanty, Secretary and Creative Director of Orissa Dance Academy (ODA) keeps her guru’s torch ablaze by organizing the Dhauli-Kalinga Mahotsav as its Festival Director regularly at the foothills of the Vishwa Shanti Stupa.  A fantastic organizer, Mohanty gives the background and instillation of this annual event, which has a strong martial arts component  alongside the classical dance form. This clarifies to many why the Kalinga Martial Arts Festival, a brainchild of Dr. Ileana Citaristi,  merged with the Dhauli Festival started by her Guru Gangadhar Pradhan.
