When she looks at Shiva.. she looks with love (shringar).. her eyes are full of wonder (adbhuta) when she hears about his greatness, she is terrified(bhaya) of the venomous snakes curling around him and she looks at us devotees with calmness (shanta) and Karunya (compassion).

Looking forward to learning the different moods of the mother goddess this September before Navarati.

Excerpts are from a description of Devi based on the different emotions or Nava rasa.

Priyadarsini Govind is one of the foremost Bharatanatyam dancers among the current generation. Trained by two stalwarts, Kalaimamani S.K. Rajarathnam Pillai and Padma Bhushan Smt. Kalanidhi Naryanan, Priyadarsini has imbibed this art form from the best. With her natural aptitude for abhinaya coupled with her passion and dedication to her art, Priyadarsini has become a flag bearer for Smt. Kalanidhi’s padam repertoire. Priyadarsini’s nritta or pure dance is intense and vigorous. A dancer known for her adherence to tradition, Priyadarsini manages to seamlessly blend new choreography with the traditional, thereby gently redefining the boundaries of Bharatanatyam repertoire.

Priyadarsini gave her maiden performance ('arangetram') in 1974, and since then has been performing in all the major centers in India and abroad. In her career, spanning two decades, Priyadarsini has performed in prestigious venues all over India and the globe.

A graduate in commerce from the University of Madras, Chennai, Priyadarsini holds a diploma in Mass Communication. Priyadarsini has been giving recitals from the age of sixteen, and has performed in numerous sabhas and academies in India and abroad. Priyadarsini also underwent training in Kalaripayattu, the martial art form of Kerala and Nattuvangam from Kalashetra.
