About Karana Viniyoga Malika by Ms. Janaki, Executive Editor Sruti Magazine

Kudos to Smt. Sundari Santhanam and to Shatavadhani Dr. R. Ganesh for their painstaking work on Karana Viniyogas. This will serve as an important work in bridging theory and practise for students of dance as well as for the serious rasika.  Lakshana and Lakshya go hand in hand and provide sustenance to each other. The Karana Viniyoga Malika is an important link in this direction. The handy booklet which comes with the DVD is a wonderful ready reference.

The two-hour long Karana Viniyoga Malika has a crisp introduction by Dr.Ganesh. This is followed by a fine presentation of the Sthanakas, Charis and Nritta Hastas that constitute a karana. Then comes the main segment in which each karana is followed by its Viniyoga.
