About 64 kalas
“You are your greatest asset. Put your time, effort and money into training, grooming and encouraging your greatest asset.”
Learning these arts helps a woman to become more artistic and imaginative in various ways and thus making her more complete. It leads to the inculcation of cultural sensitivity through awareness of an ancient Indian legacy of cultural holism.
However, with evolution in our lifestyle and outlook, these arts are not suitable to be taught or learnt in the original ancient form. In fact, some of the original 64 kalas have no practical application in our modern life. They must be altered, adapted and evolve, as all things must, to stay contemporary and relevant.
This initiative will be a collaborative one, and I invite you to write to me, if you are interested in contributing to any of the modern 64 kalas.
