Book Review - Mudra-The Language of Kutiyattam, Kathakali and Mohiniyattam - Tapati Chowdhurie

(Printing of Mudra is by Ebenezer Print Pack and published by Natanakairali.

Price: Rs.3000)

MUDRA -THE LANGUAGE OF KUTIYATTAM, KATHAKALI AND MOHINIYATTAM - The Classical Theatre and Dances of Kerala, with notations of 1341 hand gestures is the life time work of G.
