This enchanting classical dance form of Orissa is full of grace and charm, glorified by the performer, often to a sculptor’s delight. Odissi is noted for portraying the fables of Vishnu’s eighth incarnation, Lord Krishna, and takes most of its themes from Jayadeva’s ‘Geeta Govinda.’ It is a soft, lyrical classical dance. Sustaining the immaculate beauty of Odissi is Vidushi Sujata Mohapatra, a blessed disciple of the great Kelucharan Mohapatra.
