A Leg­endary Dancer

India Today - - MAIL -

While car­ry­ing for­ward the legacy of his fore­fa­thers, Birju Ma­haraj has con­trib­uted pro­fusely to the dance form of kathak (“The Last Ma­haraj of Luc­know”, March 3). His fam­ily, across gen­er­a­tions, has re­galed dance lovers right from the times of the nawabs. Birju Ma­haraj’s wish to re­store his an­ces­tral place in Luc­know and bring kathak back to the city comes as a golden op­por­tu­nity to those who want to do their own bit to pro­mote and pre­serve this mag­nif­i­cent art form.
