Book Review - Lakshman's Natyam: Delightful reading - VR Devika
It makes delightful reading. This fun filled tribute of a Sishya to her Guru. Author Preetha Sampath does many permutations of adavus (movement units) to create a korvai that is part entertainment, part history and part devotion. "Lakshman's Natyam" is a myriad hued chiaroscuro of Adyar K. Lakshman's illustrious life story told with unbridled affection. She gives an enduring picture of her Guru's life and the river flows within one. Eloquent descriptions of life cycle rituals are just the beginning to a life so enriched by the circumstances it found itself in and grabbed opportunities presented with both hands and created a future for a large number of individuals.
