Nritya Samragyi- Queen of Kathak – Sitara Devi ji


This picture reminds me the great energy and her free spirit to live every moment of life in fullest. She is undoubtedly Nritya Samragyi, Queen of Dance, titled bestowed on her by none other than great Guru RabindraNath Tagore himself. i had written a blog on nritya samragyi.

In her advanced age she thought to present herself at stage in a perfect manner. Proper dress, proper make up and also full perfection in ART. She had mastered the art of Kathak Dance very early, as a child she was taught by her Father Pandit SukhDev Maharaj and her elder sisters Smt Tara and Smt Alaknanda, considered to be as queen of Dadra. Smt Tara devi was mother of another great star of Kathak, Natraj Gopi Krishna.

i have kept this pic, to show how much respect she commands among her fans
