leave a comment »


This dancer is playing the role of Krishna. Krishna is often depicted as an infant or young boy playing a flute. The dancer is Nikkitasha Marwaha who was crowned Miss India Worldwide 2009.

In this performance, Sravya and Lvanya portray Gopikas, moving through ten classical poses representing the ten aspects of Vishnu. The ten Avatars of Vishnu – different incarnations that take the form of divine intervention provided by Vishnu during the various stages of human evolution. The “dasavatara” (ten avatars) is meant to re-establish dharma or righteousness and destroy tyranny and injustice on earth
