Description

 

From The Jacket

 

When he danced it seemed as if Lord Shiva and Kartikeya had come alive on stage. Through his dazzling performances and intricately choreographed shoes Uday Shankar introduced the art of Indian dance to the world.

Uday Shankar's talents as a dancer and choreographer were first recognised by the legendary Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova and he partnered her in several performances. A prize winning student at the Royal Academy of Arts, he could have become a painter but instead he chose to dance. He was one of the first dancers to present Indian dance in a new, innovative style and his dance company toured Europe and America to great acclaim.

In this book discover the creative genius and tumultuous life of Uday Shankar, a man who lived to dance.

Born in Calcutta, Ashoke Kemar Mukhopadhyay, a corporate communications professional is well-known for his research based articles on Rabindranath Tagore and pre-independent militant nationalist movements. A guest lecturer at the Department of Journalism and Mass Communications, Calcutta University, his other works include Pratham Diner Robi (a collection of essay on Tagore) and Chena Para Achena Manush (a collection of features on Calcutta). He won the Snocem-Ananda Literary award in the years 1998 and 2001.

Testimonials
Your books arrived in good order and I am very pleased.
Christine, the Netherlands
Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
Mary, Australia
Love your website and the emails

I love antique brass pieces and your site is the best. Not only can I browse through it but can purchase very easily.
Indira, USA
Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt
GABRIEL-FREDERIC Daniel
Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA
Love your collection of books! I have purchased many throughout the years. I love you guys!

Thank you so much for your wonderful store and wonderful service. A Naga Kanya stat arrived yesterday. The sculpture was very well packaged, and it is very beautiful. I am very very happy with the statue and very grateful to your company for providing access to such lovely works of art. Thank you for providing truly beautiful objects and for providing great service. All the very best to you,
