Anupama Jaisimha: links with Chidambaram

Anupama Jaisimha has a long association with Chidambaram.

This Bangalore-based Bharatanatyam guru attended a course run by the Annamalai University.

The study meets not only made her

familiar with this temple-Univ town but provide an opportunity to bring her students and offer anjali at the sannidhi of Lord Nataraja.
This season, she was invited to present her senior students at 4 temples for the Sivaratri season.

Anupama presented V. Mangala, Sadhana Hegde and Shobana D S, who have been learning at her feet for close to two decades.
"It is this commitment that makes me go on," says Anupama soon after her 15minutes on stage is over here.

Based in Bangalore's J P Nagar 3rd Phase, the Vishwa Bharathi Natya Shala ( phone; 265 81171/ 2658 8023)will celebrate 31 years later this year. And hopefully, Anupama will have a refurbished dance studio ready then.

True to tradition, Anupama called her guru Tumkur T M Raman before the recital here, got his blessings and feels blessed.
"He is a classical guru. There were times when he would arrive at 4 a.m. at my house for classes!".
