About Nrithya
Nrithya has been conceived from deep concern for the ever more dangerously deteriorating Indian cultural scene especially among the youth. Tomorrow's building blocks for a better society, they are now being exposed to the evils of a consumeristic society, the effect of which is readily seen in their cultural life. Art in any from is aimed at the individul, ie to self refinement which is the first step to a cultural transformation. Genuine art is left aside for the so called pop art forms which give only an instaneous excitement. Fortunately some of our finest traditional art forms which attained their matchless perfection through years have managed to survive, for good. Nrithya thinks it is our duty to support them and flourish them. Nrithya has its own dance troupe and conducts Programmes all over Kerala & Outside.
