Sridevi Nrithyalaya of Chennai will be presenting an excerpt from its dance drama " Parvathy Parinayam" at the Thiruvarur Natyanjali dance fest on March 10 and later at Brahan Natyanjali, Thanjavur on March 14. 

Taken from the story of Siva Parvati kalyanam is this short dance drama which was staged by guru Sheela Unnikrishnan as a grand production, Parvathy Parinayam.

 The edited version, opens up with the narrators depicting the sequence of Dakshayani Dahanam and
the scene leads to the birth of Goddess as Parvathy to the King Himavan. She grows up to be a beautiful damsel and serves Siva, as He meditates in the Himalayas. Manmadha dahanam happens. Later, on the advice of Sage Naradha, Parvathy penances on Siva and wins over
Him and the grand wedding follows.

Twenty four young artistes of Sridevi Nrithyalaya participate in this dance drama, which runs for twenty minutes. Lyrics are by Kadhalmathy, music has been composed by Balabharathy and choreography by Sheela Unnikrishnan.
