SNA’s Kathak fest in Jaipur

A Kathak Mahotsav was organised in Jaipur in March by Kathak Kendra, a constituent of the Sangeet Natak Akademi, New Delhi, in association with the Jaipur Kathak Kendra. SNA Secretary Jayant Kastuar (senior disciple of renowned Kathak exponent the late Durga Lal) had chosen an interesting array of performers for the festival. The mahotsav featured some brilliant artists (both men and women), who deserve wider recognition and for whom SNA provided the right forum through this mega event. The Akademi Ratna Sadasya (Fellow of SNA) award was presented to Prof. Mukund Lath, eminent scholar in the field of performing arts, at a private function as he could not attend the award ceremony at New Delhi in February.
