Deeksha School of Performing Arts in collaboration with Asha for Education proudly presents Tarini Gajelli in a solo Bharatanatyam Margam performance on June 2nd, 2024, at 4pm at Georgia Tech’s Atlantic Theatre.

Tarini has been learning under the tutelage of Smt. Anupa Thakurta since the age of 6. She is a very hardworking, diligent student and very passionate about dance. She completed her Arangetram under Anupa’s guidance in Feb, 2021. Since then she has attended various workshops by eminent gurus and taken her learning to the next level. She aspires to be a solo artist and this is another step in her journey.

While many think an Arangetram is a time to close the chapter in one’s dance career; Tarini has taken her dance to the next level after her Arangetram and we couldn’t be more proud of her. Come see her dazzle on stage.

I am deeply saddened for the loss my dear dear friend Amarnath Ghosh (Amarnath Ghosh) under such tragic circumstances. We met a couple of years back and immediately became friends. He had such aspirations for studying dance in all its forms and a phenomenal artist that he yearned to get an MFA at a dance institute of repute here in the US and he made it. A creative mind with splendid ideas but above all a very talented yet humble artist and a genuinely good human being. Life is so unpredictable- a couple of days back we were chatting and now he is gone. And taken away in such a manner. A big loss for both Bharatanatyam, Kuchipudi and the dance world. If you have it in your heart please donate to a go fund me campaign alleviate the financial burden on his loved ones and send him home back to India.

The words of “Didi Didi” from his voice have been haunting me today. Rest in peace friend and keep enthralling everyone in the other world. We are cheering for you. ❤️

Had the good fortune of meeting Shri Navtej Singh Johar in Delhi. For those who are not familiar with him: he is a Sangeet Natak Akademi award-winning Bharatnatyam exponent and choreographer. What many people don’t know is that he is also an LGBTQ activist and was the lead petitioner against the Union of India for LGBTQ rights which led to the landmark decision by the Supreme Court to decriminalize all consensual s*x among adults.
