Sujata Mohapatra, distinguished disciple and daughter-in-law of late legendary Odissi maestro Kelucharan Mohapatra opens the Odissi dance institute “Guru Keerti Srjan” in Balasore
Following is an excerpt from a report in Hindu.
The distinguished disciple and daughter-in-law of late legendary Odissi maestro Kelucharan Mohapatra opened an Odissi dance institute namely Guru Keerti Srjan in the North Orissa town of Baleswar. Aptly as the name of the institute suggested, Guru Keerti (legacy of the Guru) and Srjan (creativity and the name of the Bhubaneswar-based Odissi institution that Guru Kelucharan had founded) has been visualised to carry forward the legacy of the great master who was known for his unbound creativity. “This institute would specially care for the uncared-for talents who would be groomed in the age old guru-shishya tradition. Besides, my thrust would be on propagation of authentic Odissi tradition through proper teaching,” stated Sujata.
