“Neha that was a wonderful performance by you in your storytelling avatar! Noticed that after the correct story or stories is chosen for a particular event, a lot of work goes into it. It needs good memory, clarity and diction, right modulation and good language delivery skills. Apart from all this the body language takes a major share. All this put together requires high amount of energy! You were super energetic! Fantastic job dear! Loved every bit of your presentation. The interwoven music truly added value to the narration and elevated it further! All in all – a very good show! May God bless you with a lot of laurels in your chosen field!” – Geeta Ganesan, Senior Bharatanatyam Guru – Hyderabad
“I enjoyed when you showed Himsuka and the King playing chess.. The needle thread thing.. And those kind of things.. They were very well done. I could see you spent a lot of time and creativity on them. Really liked the deer alaripu idea too. Very novel. And in general I liked the whole idea and execution of it! And again I must say – you had excellent support from Sai and Srikanth. They were brilliant – Sai’s compositions were so sparkling and beautiful. And the jathis simple and sweet. And you have clearly rehearsed them very well. It was all executed seemlessly” – Kiranmayee Madupu – Acclaimed Bharatanatyam Dancer, Hyderabad
“Many Congrats Neha. It was so original and different and hats off to you for following your dream. You delved into something so different and admire you for that. Hearty Congratulations.” – Sharmila Taneja – Bharatanatyam Dancer and Certified Yoga Instructor.
