Reviews - What do customers think about Bharata Natyam?

Excellent book  Jun 3, 2008
An excellent book filled with huge amount of photographs which are made by different authors in different times including Avinash Pasricha and S.Anwar.
It contains interesting articles about the history, spiritual background of bharata nataym, musicians and their genealogy.
Good part about nritta, i.e. detailed and accurate adavu classification is made by Padma Subramanyam.
And for dessert is a section about contemporary exponents. This part is a little bit outdated, because the last edition of the book was in 1997, though it could be called outdated only because of the phorographs made more than 10 years ago, but the master's names are still remaining same.
Excellent intro for a beginner  Oct 13, 2004
The book is very well-written, and gives lots of explanations on a host of topics that are likely to baffle any foreigner trying to start her Bharata Natyam classes.

Most of the pictures quality is very good, although I would have appreciated it if there were provided any references to what major styles of Bharata Natyam a particular picture represents. True, it would be valuable for the advanced learners of Bharata Natyam, but would confuse the beginners.

The author should remember that a still picture is not as adequate illustration for a dance book as a complimentary DVD (like the ones by Medha Hari) would be. Maybe the next edition would include one? It would be a perfect combination!

All in all, the book is a perfect gift, and a fantastic cofee-table book. Definitely worth the money.
A gift for all Bharatanatyam lovers  Mar 15, 2002
Sunil Kothari is an outstanding scholar in the realm of dance. And this book is a precious gift that has been written for anyone passionate about their art! Beautiful colour pictures. Detailed descriptions and it inspires you to strive for greater achievement in dance....
Excellent  Nov 5, 2001
I am a beginner in Bharata Natyam and this book have help me alot to understand the history and the various postures. I feel very comfortable when I attend my classes as I know what my teacher is talking about. This book have been very helpful to me especially as I am not a South Indian and do not speak the language either. A very good book for anyone who wants to learn Bharata Natyam.
