The most colourful event in the three day Youth Festival was the grand Bharathanatyam recital by Kumaris Krithika, Lakshmi, Priya and Shreegowri. The subtleties in movement of a well trained dancer, the perfection in demonstrating various mudras  the contrasting expressions during role playing (abhinaya) were well brought out by the four dancers. The natural exuberance and beauty of youth of these children permeated and exemplified the entire performance. Guru Vidushi Sumitra Nitin along with her mother Vidushi Sujatha Vijayaraghavan, had spared no effort in making the programme a grand success. The vocal music performance, along with complex korvais of Jathi rendition, choreography and nattuvangam by Sumitra received repeated applause. Items presented included the Purandaradasa's Satata Gananatha, followed by the complex Mandooka Shabdam in Ragamalika. Thyagaraja's masterpiece Sadhinchane got the pride of place wih elaborate scope of story telling using the medium of Bharathanatyam. The final piece in Suruti included a tillana and gave ample opportunity for demonstrating different dance formations in quick succession. Accompanying Sumitra and Sujatha were Sri. Lingaraj on Mridangam, H.R.Narasimhamurthy on Flute and Anand Viswanathan on violin.
