Natyanjali in Thirunallar

  • There is always a crowd at the getes of the temple in Thirunallar, the home of 'sani bhagawan'.

  • This place falls under Puduchery ( Pondicherry) and is managed by the Hindu Religious & Charitable Endowments Dept of the state.
  • The department now hosts the Natyanjali here, with support from local rasikas and Padma Subrahmanyam's team - the latter arranges for dancers to perform here.

  • The temple is not stunning, nor is the community hall the best space for dance.
  • Executive office Panneerselvan tells us that there was a crowd for the recitals on Sivaratri night while there are 200 to 300 people on the other evenings.
  • He says the artistes are happy performing here. "We even provide accommodation to touring dancers," he says.
