The festival opened with the performance by disciples of Padma Vibhushan Dr. Sonal Mansingh; cultural educationist of International repute and Founder –President of Centre for Indian Classical Dances, New Delhi. The young students of her institution presented few thematic dance dramas and pure dances. The concert started with ‘Holika Dahan’ and ‘Hirankashyap Vadh’ in Chhau style. This was followed by group performances Kshirsagar Manthan, Bhasmasur Mohini and Kaliya vadh by Krishna.The performances were on recorded music.The concluding performance was traditional Dandia Raas of Gujarat. Few people were disappointed that Komal Ji herself did not perform but on assurance by Komal ji that she would come next time and perform for dance lovers of Udaipur audience welcomed her. The best thing was her illustrative explaining about each presentation. She talked to the audience as if she is discussing one to one. Her philosophy about Indian Dances and leading divine life was explained in very interesting manner. I cannot forget her words describing the “SWACHHATA” She related them with our own thoughts, we should have clean thoughts and if they are clean words uttered by us will be clean and finally, it would reflect our behavior which becomes automatically clean. True, such instructions if followed in true sense entire surroundings will become clean and pious.
