Anusha Subramanyam dances the story of her the heroine’s work to persuade her reluctant friend to represent her case to Muruga (The Lord of the Hills) in the hope he will come to her immediately.
This very expressive solo piece was performed by a choreographer and dancer who is considered one of the most exciting exponents of Bharatanatyam, in that she works both within and around its traditions. The dance, shows the heroine yearning to be united with Muruga. The dance shows her cajoling, nudging and persuading her reluctant friend to go in search of her beloved and deliver a letter that she hopes will bring her lover to her.
