The performance comprised of various kritis and padamsin five different languages.Trained in Thanjavur (Tanjore) style of BharataNatyam, Subhashni presented the program in the traditional Maargamwith a little deviation to adapt to the taste of the diverse audience.

The recital commenced with an invocatory piece on Lord Ganesha (EkadanthamandVakratunda)by SmtSubhashniGiridhar and her students which was followed by 3 Kavuthvams in praise of Lord Ganesha, Lord Karthikeya and Lord her students.

GajajnanayuthamGaneshwaram, a Muthuswamy Dikshitarkriti (in ragamVegavahini), KaliKavuthvam and a padam- Kalaithooki(in ragamBhageshri), a song in praise of Lord Nataraja was well performed by the students of SugunaNrityalaya.


Highlight of the day was Subhashni’s performance of Sri Tyagaraja’sNagumomuGanaleni, in ragamAbheri and talamAdi,SubhashniGiridhar excelled in her abhinaya, giving fine interpretation of the sahitya in dance.

(when she potrayed the Sita Devi’s plight,longing to see lotus eyed Sri Rama’s smiling face.). Her expressive eyes showed various rasas in sancharibhava in showing Sita’sswayamvara and Vanavaasepisode.

The abhinaya for the composition was sorrowful to reflect about Sita’s thoughts about Sri Rama. She played it as monologue (ekaharya), in flashback mode. Subhashni’s depiction of the entire drama was engagingly interwoven withjatis.

The later part of dance Subhashni presented was woven with episodes of Sri Krishna lifting the mountain Govardhanand other acts in Brindavan. The danseuse effortlessly changed roles in this padamfrom Sri Rama to Sita Devi to Lord Krishna to Garuda to Guha, the boatman, ‘Hari Tum Haro’, Meerabhajan in DarbariKanada was like a gentle cool breeze.

Lord Krishna depicted as the rescuer of Draupadi as Dushasan tried to disrobe her (cheerharan), Narasimha avatar protecting child Prahlada from his evil father Hiranyakashyapu and GajendraMoksham (rescue of the elephant by Lord Vishnu) was well enacted by her students.

In Chinnanchirukiliyekannama, a Subramania Bharathi’scomposition in Tamil, Subhashni depicted parent’s happiness on the birth of a girl child and motherhood with utmost sensitivity.


The audience got to witness brisk rhythmic footwork accompanied by speedy Jatirecitation in Tillana (in raga Hamsanandhi ) as her final act of evening along with her shishyas.

As the audience made way out of the venue the taals of Mridangam and the facial expressions of the artist of the evening SubhashniGiridhar, resonated in their minds.

SubhashniGiridharis a Chartered Accountant by profession. She trains students only with a view to pass on the rich cultural heritage of BharataNatyam (Tanjore/ Thanjavur style) to the next generation, without making teaching dance, a commercial proposition.
