Tribute - Lakshmi Viswanathan (January 1944 - January 2023)- Jeetendra Hirschfeld

There are people in your life that come in, and you make sense to each other, and that is what I had with Lakshmi Viswanathan.

I had known Lakshmi for decades. I think I first met her in the early 1990s. For many years she was a dancer I watched and admired. We met at the sabhas and just had friendly interactions. It was only around 2013 or so that we started talking more, and she would invite me to her every performance, knowing that I would be there even without an invitation. And I would now and then visit her home to discuss dance and art. Our mutual interest in Tanjavur Natyam brought us closer together.
