After a fantastic Onam festival at the High Commission of India, London showcasing the in house talent by the Staff members of the High Commission, the  Nehru Centre, the cultural wing of the High Commission of India, London hosted an artistic evening entitled ‘Shades of India’ on 25th November 2016. This is for the first time that such an event highlighting India’s incredible cultural diversity withsong and dance concert by the staff and family members of India House was held in the premises.

The presentations were an ensemble of folk and classical dances representing the culture and traditions of various parts of India intertwined with golden Bollywood melodies followed by a colour full and delicious feast.

The cultural journey started from the southernmost state of India, Kerala, with dancers performing the extremely elegant dance form called Kaikottikali. The dance started with paying obeisance to Lord Ganesha and invoking Lord Krishna, which continued as a dance story from Aranyakand in Ramayan concluding with thanksgiving to Lord Shiva. Dancers: Anu Ansil, Gayatri Iyer, Jyothi KR, Pushpa Mohan, Ratnamala Chalamcharla and Reshma Rajani

The Grand Finale of evening was everyone’s patriotic favourite ‘Vande Mataram’ performed Reshma Rajani with all the performers on the stage.

Another attraction of the event was fine food carving with fruits and vegetables by Ramjith Raghavan. The magnificent event was followed by sumptuous feast organised by owner of Kerala Group of Restaurants T Haridas.
