Ethics-Aesthetics of Jaidev's Poetics GEET GOVIND in Udaipur
An amazingly ethereal profusion of spontaneity, melody, rhythm, beauty, truth, aesthetics, completely pious, pure, passionate, dedicated movements of dance in gestures, emotions and steps were felt by mesmerised and delighted spectators at Shilpgram theatre hall on 11 December 2016, Sunday from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm. It was an occasion that commemorated the sweet strains of lyrics from the book entitled "Geet Govind" sung in praise and in devotion for the Supreme Almighty Lord Krishna by one of the early Medieval Indian History Laureate and renowned poet Jaidev. The performers were from young girls to youthful women, who embellished the the poetics with their kindled, enlightened art of Odissi dance, who have been mentored voluntarily for so long by the blessings of Guruji of Vrindavan, whose patronisation and motivation have not only enriched and enlivened the long, lost, precious, classical Indian literary piece through art of music and dance, but his kind dedication has relived the sensitivity of both spectators and performers all across India within a few years of its inception and conception. It has proved to be an offshoot for international cultural exchange and preservation of national heritage, which indeed needs more credits and acclamation, then what till it has received. Dr Pallavi Sharma, a gynaecologist in the Pannadhaya Hospital, Udaipur and her husband Dr Ashok Sharma along with their three daughters have been ardently pursuing this Odissi dance art to enact poetics of poet laureate Jaidev. The group comprising of lovely damsels with perfect bliss and coordination transcendentalised the varied artistic presentations while enacting the Gopis' love for Lord Krishna, the ten incarnations of the Infinite Form of Supreme Being on the Earth. The incredibility of its aesthetics seemed unending to suspend spectators' eyes on the commendable performative part of beautiful dancers of all age groups. The lovely little girls enacted the miraculous, enchanting pastimes of God Krishna; they performed on incantations sung in praise of God Shiva; they danced with piety on lyrics composed to invoke God's blessings; then all pretty damsels, with their performance, cherished audience heart with the musical dance sequences on Vasant Pallavi, Battuu Nritya, Madhurashtakam, Kalawati Pallavi, Kede Chandan etc. The spectators relished the blithe expressions manifested in motions of dancing steps of Vrindavan, who had been also acclaimed and felicitated by the Indian Council for Cultural Relations. The epitome of creative unity and aesthetics was visible in the participation and devotion of the dance performers such as Anuradha from Croatia and Chandramukhi from Switzerland. With the blessings of the mentor named Guruji, Venunaad Kala Kendra has carried far and wide, across the world by way of learning the rich and beautiful Odissi dance art and through their illustrious and glorious presentations. The dance performers were - Vrandawani Sharma, Arya Gupta, Anchal Bedi, Shireen, Kratavi, Navya Songh, Jhanvhi, Nehal, Sanskriti, Payal, Nandini, Rajeshwari Malhar, Dakshyami, Himanshi, Falguni, Shivika, Pallavi, Archana, Pawan Rajwaar. All sequences of dance performances were directed by the mentor of Odissi dance Shri. Pratap Narayan Mishra. The programme was anchored and coordinated by Momin Khan. The West Zone Additional Director Sh. Sudhanshu Singh presided the event. Dr Jayshree Singh and Mrs Anuradha Singh were the Special Guests, whose admiration for the performances prompted them to extend lots of appreciation and gratitude to have them the opportunity to watch the spectacular art of Odissi, performed by the young and adult trainees of the famous dancer and director of Venunaad Kala Kendra, on the poetics of Great Poet of India, Jaidev.
