Veteran guru of Bharatanatyam, M.K.Saroja Khokar passed away peacefully on June 13, 2022 at home in Bangalore. No struggle, no hospitalization. She was 92 this year and was a benchmark in Bharatanatyam of Vidwan Muthukumaran Pillai bani of Kattumunarkoil. While Ram Gopal, her mentor, Rukmini Devi her patron and Mrinalini Shatabhai too learnt from the same guru, only Saroja learnt exclusively from Thatha as Muthukumaran Pillai was called.
