Aishwarya has been fascinated by the Bharatanatyam dance form and started learning Bharatanatyam dancing from the age of 8. She is a student of Dance Guru Shri K Mohanan who is an accomplished dancer and is a member of the faculty at the well known Kalakshetra Foundation, Chennai.

Aishwarya had her “Arangetram” on October 15, 2013. In Tamil language “Arangam” means stage and “etram” means climbing. Therefore “Arangetram” is literally “climbing the stage” and thus denotes the first solo, formal dance performance of the student where the Guru presents his/her student to the audience after he/she has undergone years of training to be ready for a stage performance. It is the debut performance of the artist and in Western parlance can be considered as the artist’s “Graduate performance”


It was an excellent performance by Aishwarya and she has all the potential in her to make the grade as a top artist in the years to come.


Incidentally, Aishwarya is our grand niece i.e. granddaughter of my elder brother (late) A. Rajan.

Enjoy the pictures,
