Raghava Yadhava


This was for the invitation of the Thematic Bharata Natyam Recital that is to take place on the 14th of January at the Mylapore Fine Arts Club. The Students (in pic), disciples of Meenakshi Chitaranjan, the famous Bharata Natyam exponent in the Pandanallur style of dance,  are the performing artistes for this event!

For the uninitiated and for the non-Indian bloggers:

Raghava refers to Rama, the  most popular of the incarnations of Lord Vishnu, portrayed by the Bow in his left hand and an Arrow in his right hand.

Yadhava refers to Krishna, the eighth incarnation of Vishnu, portrayed by the action of playing the Flute.

Hence the name Raghava Yadhava!
