  1. Aishwarya chechii you are incredible .From youth festival to such a dias this is huge and inspiring .Thankyou for inspiring many of us ❤️🙏

  2. I have learnt Barathnatyam half way… It's a beautiful dance form specially when you dance to a song in a language one can relate to…. be it tamil, kannadda or English etc…. one can get innovative & choreograph their own recital…….

  3. She did a really wonderful job!! Indian culture makes their women so elegant and beautiful without objectifying them or perverting their femininity. It's an inspiring approach the west could stand to pay attention to! Incredible work!

  4. Awesome combination of grace and technique. Very different from usual stiff and aggressive format. Very fluid and totally enjoyable, since the dancer seems to be enjoying herself above all! Total Rassotpatti!
