Topic: Bharatanatyam is one of the most popular and oldest dance forms of India and belongs to the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu. It is known for its grace, purity, tenderness, and sculpturesque poses.

Bharata Natyam skillfully embodies the three primary ingredients of dancing. They are bhava or mood, raga or music and melody and tala or timing. It is also performed by both man and woman.

    You've absolutely captured what you describe as the mood and spirit of the dance. It's beautifully rendered, as well. Very nicely done.
