This offering relates to master of Odissi Kelucharan Mohapatra with a brief sketch of his life and work. Included are 24 color pictures, which are the best part of this series. Truly, the album has captured the dancer in bewitching moods..


When scorned by Banobihari Maiti who said that Oriyas didn't know how to dance, Kelucharan remarked: 'It got into my heart that I will do more for the dance of Orissa; learn, study, and if I'm born in Orissa and have Oriya blood, I will definitely show what odissi is. I have always considered Banobihari Maiti to be my guru because he inspired me to dedicate myself to Odissi dance, even though he taught me in a negative way.
