Nartanam - Vol IX No. 1

A Quarterly Journal of Indian Dance - Volume IX - Number 1 - January to March 2009 (Special Issue on Mohini Attam)

A comprehensive history of Indian classical tradition, like the histories of the other performing arts, seems at best to be an utopian vision attempt as on today, for it involves too many strands of cross-currents of styles within a style that could not easily be comprehended. There are, of course, attempts made by competent (and many times not so competent) critics in whose works euphoria often blinds facts and excellent photographs outshine content. Many remain to be good coffee table books; some attain the status of gaining place on the racks of a library.
