Outstanding’, ‘brilliant’ and ‘It makes me emotional to see Indian culture and legacy kept alive’, were the comments from India’s Consul-General Harsh Vardan Shringla, who was guest of honour at Natya Thilakum Lageshrie’s School of Dance arangetram (graduation) at the Truro Hall in Bombay Heights at the weekend. Five teenage girls spent seven to 11 years learning the ancient art of Bharatha Natya dance, which emerged from the temples of South India more than 5 000 years ago. Flanking their teacher, Srimathi Lageshrie Philliphs, the graduates are (from left); Kalin Mekraj (16); Tashmika Budhai (16); Samiksha Singh (15); Serisha Jack (16); and (front) Thashmira Singh (14).
