1. Tell us more about your background and journey.

Basically I’m a computer engineering graduate from the Coimbatore city with a great aspiration in the field of art especially in the field of dance. I am a trained classical dancer and I love to dance than anything else and learned this skill since my school days since the age of six.


2. When did you first decide you wanted to pursue dancing and how did you start?

Honestly speaking during my childhood days I started to dance when my mother made me join in a dance academy called Drida dance academy at the age of six. Initially during those days itself I had a great love towards the dance.

And this passion towards dancing enhanced after seeing my Guru performing her talent and me greatly got inspired by her talent and this later grew gradually as my passion.

I’ve been pursuing dancing for the past sixteen years and even now during the lock-down days I’m continuing pursuing this art through online classes and waiting for my Arrangement once this pandemic comes to an end.


3. Who is your favorite dancer and why?

My favorite dancers are Renuka Ramthilak who is my guru and Rukmani Vijayakumar who is a famous Indian choreographer. My Guru, Renuka Ramthilak always insists on the saying that each dancer have their own natural flair and each dancer should manifest their unique talent in their own idiosyncratic way which inspired me a lot.

And also Rukmani Vijayakumar inspired me a lot by the way she puts her soul into her dance and the way she maintains her body as she is trained yoga practitioner.


4. Can you throw some light on opportunities one gets as a dancer?

The opportunities that one gets to showcase themselves as a dancer is very much difficult than being in any other field as lot and lot of politics are there in this profession which is common now a days in our present society.

Now a days in our present world people with increased money and increased power can become easily successful in this field. But the duration for a commoner to achieve in the field of dance is a little prolonged process. First the people who are aspired to dance should get a good guru which is the most important support one can get to become a successful dancer.

Then one should never miss any single opportunity to showcase their talent – For example to become a prosperous classical dancer one should never miss an opportunity to perform in temple shows and in sabhas which are great base platforms to showcase themselves and enhance their talent purely.


5. Is format training required or can one train themselves purely on the basis of talent?

Of course, format training is very much required to become a successful in the field of dancing even though they are well versed and have a great level of talent in them. Though a person have an extensive level of talent in the field of dancing getting trained from a sagacious guru is the most significant think to become successful in this field.


6. What piece of advice would you like to give to future and aspiring artists?

My piece of advice to the artists out in the world are do not miss even a small space you get to showcase your talent. It might help you a lot. That small space or the stage can be the stepping-stones for greater heights. 

And If you really love dancing and live the dance in your every breath surely one day or the other you can achieve greater heights in this field and the most important thing that one artist should never ever forgot in their life time is to make their Guru feel proud.


7. Which is your favorite book and why?

The most favorite book I have ever read is “Homo Sapiens”. It’s my most favorite one because it’s a brief history of mankind. In Sapiens, Dr Yuval Noah Harari spans the whole of human history, from the very first humans to walk the earth to the radical – and sometimes devastating – breakthroughs of the Cognitive, Agricultural and Scientific Revolutions.

Drawing on insights from biology, anthropology, palaeontology and economics, he explores how the currents of history have shaped our human societies, the animals and plants around us, and even our personalities.

Have we become happier as history has unfolded? Can we ever free our behavior from the heritage of our ancestors? And what, if anything, can we do to influence the course of the centuries to come?

Bold, wide-ranging and provocative, Sapiens challenges everything we thought we knew about being human: our thoughts, our actions, our power ... and our future.
