A long Kuchipudi recital . . .

Dr. Saraswathi Rajathesh came to Thanjavur with a group of Kuchipudi dancers and a production.
The local organisers prefer short recitals. So when the Bangalore artistes went on and on the organisers' foreheads creased.

Though the Big Temple is in the middle of this town, neighbourhoods do not hug it and so, the recitals do not get a guaranteed attendance.
And people tend to move on after 9 p.m.

Saraswathi says though Kuchipudi is not hugely popular in Bangalore, she gets youth who are keen to learn the dance. Relocated in Bangalore from Hyderabad, she is busy preparing for a Kuchipudi Fest in Bangalore on March 3 and 4.
