The Dikshitars curate their festival at Chidambaram

It took some time for us to locate the people who were planning to host the dance fest inside the temple campus in Chidambaram.
Over the last 14 years that we at KutcheriBuzz have been at this campus, reporting on the fest we have made friends will various Dikshitars.

For some years now, a small group have been hosting a Sivaratri music fest in the inner prakaram of the temple's south side. This was a small effort but it featured some well known artistes like Sikkil Gurucharan.

A day ago we made contact with Ayyappa Dikshitar who is secretary of the team for the dance fest. It lists some VIPs in its team and the core is manned by the Dikshitars.

Ayyappa says that while dances of the Sivaratri night will run from 4 p.m. to 4 a.m. the next morning, the recitals will end by 10 p.m. on all the other four evenings.
