The programme explores and celebrates different dimensions of Samyog-Viyog through classical music and dance.
Sunanda Sharma will explore Samyog through a thumari. It will be followed by Shovana Narayan celebrating Samyog through her kathak recital on poem by L M Singhvi.
On separation from her beloved Krishna, Radha becomes restless and is not able to sleep. She invokes God (Rama) expressing her feelings in Viyog of Krishna. This Bhav (expression) is beautifully presented through a chaiti sung by Sunanda Sharma.
It is followed by illustration of Viyog in form of kathak by Shovana Narayan through two bandishes of Kunwar Shyam rolled into one item showing disappointment at non-arrival of her lover and consequent non-fulfillment in Rag Sudharai.
After going through intense pain of being in Viyog of Krishna, Radha pleads Krishna to let her immerse her consciousness into her priytam (lover) to become one with him. It is beautifully expressed by Sunanda through kajari.
The love between Radha and Krishna is the supreme emotion of Shringar Rasa. Shovana joins Sunanda in rendering of this ultimate emotion through khayal in Rag Madhuvanti 'Gobind gun gaavo' in Rag Madhuwanti.
The performances by legendary artists will be no less than a treat for spectators in the National Capital.
