  • Published By: Sruti

Prof. A. Janardhanan spent 47 years at Kalakshetra, first as an outstanding student, then as principal dancer of Kalakshetra, and faculty member. He then went on to become the Principal of the Rukmini Devi College of Fine Arts at Kalakshetra and finally retired as Professor Emeritus at the age of 62. After a hiatus, he was invited back to his alma mater to revive some of its older dance-dramas in July this year. Guru Janardhanan is being honoured by Natyarangam (the dance wing of the Narada Gana Sabha) on 19 August on the inaugural day of its week-long thematic festival titled ‘Baandhava Bharatham’.
