performance in the White House on the occasion of celebration of
Christmas and The New Year. December 24, 2008.
The time has come to renew the "Indian-Soviet friendship"!
The coming year 2009 has been proclaimed the year of India in Russia!
We were lucky to be the first swallows in establishing cultural
connections between our countries.
The energy of the meeting of two great cultures - Kuchipudi and the
Government of Russia headed by V.V. Putin (unfortunately we couldn't
see D.A. Medvedev) turned out to be truly stunning.
In the middle of the dancing the equipment went down and the
auditorium sank into the absolute silence. But we managed to
demonstrate the paragons of self-control: for a whole minute we
stood at attention with our hands raised in "natyarambhe" position.
The numerous attempts to drive us off the stage by means of
prolonged storm of applause were not crowned with success! We did
not leave the stage until they turned the music on for one more time
and gave us the opportunity to dance from the start.
