New Delhi: “Dance as the narration of a magical story; that recites on lips, illuminates imaginations and embraces the most sacred depths of souls. If spirit is the seed, dance is the water of its evolution. Dance is the timeless interpretation of life. If you opened the dictionary and searched for the meaning of a Goddess, you would find the reflection of a dancing lady,” said Dr. Sandeep Marwah Chancellor of AAFT University of Media And Arts at the inauguration of two day Kathak Nritya Mahotsav organised by Urvashi Dance Music Art and Cultural Society at Triveni Kala Sangam in association with International Chamber of Media And Entertainment Industry.
