The Passion of Natakairali
Last weekend, I had the honor of attending a Butoh and Koodiyattom performance at Natanakairali in the peaceful locales of Irinjalakuda in Kerala.
One of the first friends I knew in my life, Kapila and her parents have dedicated their lives in promoting the traditional dance forms of Kerala. This passion was so strong and very evident in their professional setup. They have disagreed to pursue the glamorous roles of movies to keep the art form pure and give it due respect. This level of sincerity was so hard to ignore and this prompted me to write this post. It is indeed a marvelous thing to be true to your passion and live for it!
