This video pays homage to the teachers who guide us in our journey in dance. Kathakali maestro Sri Mudakkal Gopinathan Nair reminisces on the various ways in which his Guru Thakazhi Kuttan Pillai molded him. Today, he honors the Guru who went above and beyond his responsibilities as a teacher by shaping his students' moral and ethical viewpoints. Educators and instructors are the foremost protectors of our nation's cultural heritage and deserve our utmost respect. On Teachers Day 2021, NatyaSutraOnline pays tribute to all Guru's who forward the cause of Indian Classical Dance.
