Tribute - Delhi's pioneer institution builder for Bharatanatyam passes away - Leela Venkataraman

Pioneer in the setting up of an institution for propagating Bharatanatyam in the capital, the founder of Ganesa Natyalaya, Dr. Saroja Vaidyanathan, is no more. The institution initiated in 1972 in Patna where she resided with her bureaucrat husband, was shifted to Delhi in 1974, with Mr.Vaidyanathan being posted to the capital. While the school at first functioned from a modest place, with the help of sponsors and well-wishers who were many, thanks to the fund of goodwill earned by both Saroja and her husband, it was in 1988 that the new building was set up in Delhi's Institutional Area.
