Shruti Kotnala tells her stories through dance. The Kathak dancer will take you down memory lane with her history lesson on Kathak in India. Through her journey, Shruti shares how she found the dance form and how it has moulded her worldview over the years. She talks about being an artist in challenging times as the art form grapples with modernisation and a lack of interest. But her love for ghungroos, the instruments, the taals and everything else just makes her work harder everyday to live the legacy of her Banarasi gharana.
