Harihara - in Love with Vishnu and Shiva

There will be a Bharathanatyam Performance by Daisygarani Vijayakumaran on the title " Harihara - in Love with Vishnu and Shiva" this coming Sunday at the Malaysia Tourism Centre. Daisygarani has been known by her graceful performance of My Body, My Temple in 2006, which was her first solo performance.

This time she will be collaborating with the renowned Bharathanatyam Dancer Mavin khoo who as been a devoted dancer for the past 20 years. Mavin khoo himself has performed all types of dances ranging from Ballet, Natyam to contemporary in Britain, Europe, United States and India.

Mavin has guided Daisygarani Vijayakumaran and has been a part of her preparation for the performance this Sunday. For this show, Mavin has directed Daisygarani to explore deeper the core theme of love between the soul and the immortal spirit.

The show will be on live orchestra music and Mavin will be on the nattuvangam.

Daisy has attended master classes in bharatanatyam by some of the best of Kalakshetra: Professor N. S. Jayalaksmi, Adayar K. Lakshman, and Srimathi Kamalarani. She is also the disciple of Geetha Shankaran-Lam under the Temple of Fine Arts and has recently received instruction from renowned Guru Durga Charan Ranbir of Orissa.

Harihara will talk about the expressions on different possibilities of this relationship between the human and the divine, dramatically revealed through some of the most beautiful compositions of Carnatic music.

In Harihara, Daisygarani will delve into a series of five works from the bharatanatyam repertoire that embraces the concept of love for the immortal Hindu gods, Vishnu and Shiva.

Gov : Alamak.. kalau ada ink.. cam mana nak buat "Vote - hantu" tu.. alah lupa la. Suruh SPR kata taknak pakai la
SPR : Ye ke.. ok la.. kita buat je apa you cakap Pak
Gov : Bagui.. sekarang kita ada duit ada vote jugak
SPR : Rakyat tidak akan mengunakan ink. Ini kerana semua akan gaduh.. kita tak mau gaduh. kita nak aman dan damai
SPR dan GOV : Baguilah sekarang.. semua settle... mari kita jual balik ink tu dan bikin lagi 2 juta...

Our goverment can't even make a simple decision on the usage of INK!! Just think about how they are using our money.. our tax and our expertism for their own gain all this while and possibly after this too!!
