"The Reflection of a Decade & Beyond"

October 19, 2020 marks 10 years since Nritya Laya Darpan was formed. Never in my dreams did I anticipate this, it  happened so organically, which makes it all the more special. Fruits of hard work and dedication are the sweetest and it is such a joy to reap this harvest.

There have been moments of surreal experiences or dreams that I hadn’t imagined would come true but I am looking forward to this day because one such dream is coming true. My special guests of honor are none other than esteemed artists themselves who have a very big role in drawing me into this art form - my closest family friend whose arangetram stays vivid since I was 5, my first Guru whom I reached out to learn my fundamentals and later my Guru under whom part of the dream was realized by achieving an arangetram only to learn that this was a passion that I wanted to hold on for life.

There will be a short virtual recital, a tete-a-tete with our Guests of Honor, traditional learning session for everyone alike, some interesting and interactive game, and an open session for Q & A. This virtual celebration will be held on October 24th PST and October 25th IST, which happens to be Vijayadashami, and what better day to offer my gratitude to my Gurus and seek their blessings for NLD’s future endeavors! With this celebration I also would like to establish the "Guru Sishya" parampara among my students, a much needed virtue that I hold dear till date. 

This will be streamed live on our YouTube Channel - Nritya Laya Darpan
