Woman Times Desk – On the 74th Independence Day, the nation witnessed a different form of celebration with the ongoing pandemic. However, the spirit of celebration never dies. On the same note, the Ministry of Culture, Government of India has put up on their social networking sites some of the best performers and carriers of the Indian Culture.
Amidst the stars was the dance rendition on Vande Mataram performed by Guru Sanchita Bhattacharya. With heartfelt gratitude and respect towards the nation, Guru Sanchita says,
“I felt proud and honoured to represent my country on the social platform which is a huge platform now, with the participation of the whole world. I thank my motherland for giving me the pleasure of offering my services for her and I thank Lord Jagannath for choosing me as an artist of the Indian music and dance. So I feel deeply gratified that I got the opportunity to represent my Mother nation on this forum on such an auspicious day for every Indian.”
She further adds, “I stand with, for and by my nation. Earlier, during the initial days of Novel Coronavirus outbreak in India, Guru Sanchita Bhattacharya has been requested by MyGov to make the people aware about the virus through her dance. Guru Sanchita, through her Mudras, has beautifully executed the symptoms, the necessary precautions – like doing ‘Namaste’ instead of a handshake, throwing away of tissue after sneezing etc. that people need to take to remain safe from the Coronavirus. Earlier I offered my dance for my countrymen and this time I am saluting my mother nation with this dance”.
Internationally acclaimed Odissi dancer and winner of the prestigious Mahari Award-2018, Sanchita Bhattacharya has performed a very special dance on Vande Mataram depicting India's rich cultural heritage. #SwadheentaKeRang
