Highlight of the event was the performance of Hemant and Vaishali Panwar of Upasana Dance Company and School.. Krishana Leela a great Dance drama in Kathak. They were simply awesome. We were even fortunate to be there to witness the event. Display by them and their students kept the audience so much exited and sticking to the chairs. People like these are the ones who keep our sanskar really alive. From seeing their program, we can easily realize. Dance, Bakthi and Bhavana are their passion and devotion. We certainly need people of this class if we want to pass on the culture and art of Bharath and our Dharma to our future generation. Bharat Marg really want to thank the temple and OFBJP for arranging this event during Hindu Heritage Month celebration as it is very much appropriate. You can see the attached brief video and enjoy.
