Vaishali Kala Kendra has recently organized its annual festival, Nritya Pravaha, to keep the spirit alive this year and to give a virtual stage to younger artists. Since most of the events are happening online platforms due to Covid-19, Nritya Pravaha is also conducted on a virtual platform.
Nritya Pravaha upholds the dedication to the Guru Shishya Parampara, which is the reason for continuity “Pravaha” on this earth. Without Pravaha the universe stands still. A platform where Guru and Shishya are going to be part of this online event.
Odissi exponent Jyoti Srivastava and Director of Vaishali Kala Kendra said Due to pandemic we are unable to do any events or meet people personally. However, things are the same at least we can share our experience virtually.
