As Chennai enjoyed the Margazhi season with some great music and dance performances, Swetha Pararajasingam's Bharatanatyam recital caught the attention of many. Swetha, a Tamilian based in Canada, performed as part of Sumedha, the brainchild of Madurai R. Muralidharan, acclaimed composer, dancer, choreographer, lyricist, playwright and director known for his large body of modern compositions.

Young and passionate, Swetha's portrayal was conceptualized as a creative set piece of a Bharatanatyam Margam, set to Tisra Jathi Rupika Thalam, depicting the pain and suffering that Tamils underwent during the ethnic war in Sri Lanka.

 

She moved the audience to tears with her expressive presentation and abhinaya.

Those who were present at the show, including Padma Bhushan Vikku Vinayakram, danseuses Sudharani Raghupathy and Anita Ratnam, Haridwaramangalam AK Palanivel and actor/producer Thiagarajan heaped praise on her performance. Swetha’s dad Pararajasingam bankrolled the  Tamil film, Nethra, recently.
