As a portal, it will showcase all that is India is synonymous with - Yoga, Vedas, Bharathanatyam and other forms of Indian dance, Carnatic Music or the South Indian classical music, Ayurveda, the ancient Indian school of medicine, Hindustani or the musical traditions of northern India- or simply any Indian art.

Kalakendra is presented by Swathi Soft Solutions, a Chennai based IT company that has distinguished itself for its slick interpretations of the arts and sciences of ancient India using innovative technologies.

Raga alapana is the acid test for Carnatic vocalists and instrumentalists and it is in the exposition of ragas that the individuality and maturity of the musician finds expression. Raga vinyasa is manodharma sangeetham which can make the musical sensitivity of the artist paint a glorious image of the melody.

Nedunuri Krishnamurthy is well known for his multi-faceted talents as a vocalist, tunesmith, teacher and a researcher. His raga expositions have adhered to classical values. Nedunuri offers elaborate portrayals of Sahana, Begada, Thodi, Bilahari, Surutti and Bhairavi in this triple disc album. The names of the accompanists are not mentioned but the experienced ears can easily identify the mesmerising quality of Lalgudi Jayaraman's accompaniment in the third disc for Sri Venkatagirisham. His alapana of Surutti and highly intellectual kalpanaswaras are a sheer delight to listen to.

Yoga reins in human beings from temptations by providing a regimen for a disciplined life. The frontiers of Yoga extend much beyond grotesque body contortions and regulated breathing as widely perceived.

Dance Forms of India

Almost all forms of Indian art have an inextricable and intimate bond with the land's mythology and spiritualism. Bharathanatyam, one of the classical dance forms of India is no exception. In fact, the very word Bharata Natyam brings images of another form of Lord Siva- Nataraja, the dancing deity or the 'king of dancers'. The strong theological undertones in Bharatha Natyam are further demonstrated by a divine ensemble that includes Lord Ganesha and Sri Krishna.

Vedas

No study of India is complete without understanding the Vedas, the bedrock of the country's cultural life. 'Veda' in Sanskrit means knowledge which it provides to lead a wholesome life sans any conflict or confusion. Interestingly, the topics covered by the Vedas are not bound by narrow parameters like time, region or religion. They are eternal and their relevance transcends all such barriers.
