Reviews :
“Going through the writings of Dr. Shobha Shashikumar, I feel that the study of Indian dance has attained philosophical maturity… she has established the homogeneity of her soulful performance and profound research.”
– Śatāvadhāni Dr. R Ganesh
(from Foreword of the book)
Dr. Shobha Shashikumar is a profound artiste who has been working on a parallel dance paradigm since many years. She is an accomplished academic whose artistry has a research bent of mind. She is one among the few artistes who have successfully bridged the gap between theory and practice without compromising the creativity in her. These attributes fill in a unique texture to her choreography. To complete the artiste in her, she is a very approachable person who has the simplicity to appreciate art in others too.

(from Testimonials in the book)
The confluence of theory and practice in Bharatanāṭya is one which was nearly forgotten and now revived by scholars like Dr Shobha. It will enrich the field, opening vistas not known by mere practitioners… Shobha has viewed the subject ‘dance’ from many angles.
