Episode Five
Kummi by Saraswati Gana Nilayam Group
Pinnal Kolattam by Saraswati Gana Nilayam Group
Bharatanatyam by Gita Krishna Raj
This episode features a popular folk of Tamilnadu – Kummi – a simple dance performed only by women by the clapping of their hands. It is a very common form performed in all villages for any happy occasion. A number of poets including Subramaniya Bharati encouraged this art form. Another dance form prevalent in the villages of Tamilnadu is Pinnal Kolattam. This is a rhythmic number performed with sticks which are tied with coloured ropes from a single point above. As the dance finishes the coloured threads are knotted in a design. The costumes of Bharatanatyam classical dancers were just as simple as the village dancers until about 70 years ago. It was Rukmani Devi Arundale who gave a glamorous at the same time dignified status to the dancer and the dance form. This episode shows the designer jewellery shops and a tailor’s den where specially designed silk costumes are tailored in large numbers to cater to dancers around the world. This is followed by a demonstration of danseuse Gita Krishna raj who explains the term Rasa and Bhava common to all dance forms. She also performs a traditional Bharatanatyam Padam.

Episode Six
Folk Arts of Tamil Nadu – Karagam, Kavadi, Poikkal Kudirai, Oyillattam
Bharatanatyam by Lata Krishnaswamy
Odissi by Kavita Dwivedi
The wide varieties of folk art – forms throughout India are bound by common religious and mythological themes. Folk arts bring about the interaction of all aspects of life and are not seen as something apart from life. This episode features: Karagam-where men dance with a semi-circular object on their shoulders. Both Karagam and Kavadi dancers perform many acrobatic feats. Poikkal Kudirai – a folk art form where the dancers dance on stilts and also wear a dummy – horse costume and Oyillattam – where young girls performs pure Nritta numbers. One such is Pandattam or a game of ball performed by popular danseuse Lata Krishnaswamy. Odissi, one of the oldest classical Indian dance forms belongs to the eastern Indian state of Orissa. The striking feature of Odissi is its intimate relationship with temple sculptures such as those features a Nritta number by danseuse Kavita Dwivedi.

More than two hundred celebrity dancers of India have been brought together for the first time, in this 13 episode TV serial which features the different classical styles of India as well as several folk art forms across the country.
