The adorable Elephanta island brings back so many memories. The past weekend we went to the Elephanta Festival which was discontinued for two years because of the nasty terror attacks. The Elephanta Caves are known for the Shiva shrine. Every year renowned artists perform at this heritage site.
This year Dr. Raja and Radha Reddy performed with their two lovely daughters. They performed the Kuchipudi style, that showed us Shiva's tandav and his navrasas, Krishna's dance on the serpent and the Kurukshetra scene from the Maharbharata, a difficult dance form we thoroughly enjoyed.. We were amazed at the energy and sheer stamina the dancers possessed.
Sitting on white gaddis surrounded by lush greenery, we had an amazing time accompanied by live Carnatic music. The second performance for the day was the santoor maestro Pandit Shivkumar Sharma.
All in all we had a wonderful time and here are the (several) pictures.
