51 recitals at Big Temple

The hosts of the Brihanatyanjali at the BigTemple, Thanjavur call us as we leave a dusty Cuddalore behind us and have 47 kms ahead to Chidambaram.

Their invite came in late - guess the cause of the delay is in the scheduling artistes for a seven-day long fest, yes Thanjavur hosts the longest anjali of this kind!

There are to be 51 recitals at this venue and save for eight solos, the rest are all group recitals.

The South Zone Cultural Centre which is based in this heritage town pays for the travel of outstation dancers - this is not much but having the Centre as a partner helps.

Over the years, like many other Natyanjali teams the Thanjavur group has also managed to involve local hotels and businesses as partners.

Natyanjalis also cost a lot to host!
