India's rich cultural legacy has been founded on the abiding faith of the Indians in the divine power, whose worship had found expression through dance. 'Bhakti' or devotion was the underlying essence of the various dance forms that developed in India. Indian Classical Dances is a unique presentation of the eight classical dance styles -- Bharatanatyam, Kathak, Kathakali, Kuchipudi, Manipuri, Mohiniyattam, Odissi and Sattriya, through a concise portrayal of the background of each dance form, the salient features, format of presentation, music and costume. The simplistic approach of the narration coupled with the unique collection of photographs, will enable the lay reader to visualise, comprehend and appreciate the diverse dance forms of India.

अति सुंदर...काश, इस पुस्तक को हिन्दी में translate कर दिया जाता तो एक बहुत बड़ा वर्ग जो छूट जाता है वो भी इस पु्स्तक का लाभ उठा पाता। बहुत अच्छा लिखा है शोभा जी ने, वैसे भी वो मेरी हमेशा से favorite रहीं है।
धन्यवाद...आपको इस पुस्तक के लिए बहुत-बहुत बधाई
