The Age old story has always directed the society in the correct path. All the characters portrayed has their own significant role in shaping the entire story. The moral of the story is that, GREEDINESS is the sole reason of destruction. All the characters you name has been guilty of being greedy once at least in the entire story line. The dance drama helped our students and the audience realize the importance of selflessness and Greed free life!

India gained Independence from the Britishers which marked the begining of a new era making India the largest democracy in the Whole world. For almost two centuries we were ruled over and they supressed us till the point we went numb and started fighting back. The struggles and sacrifices of our Martyrs from every field brought us the most precious gift of all times, Independence. They dreamt of a free India, the Unity in diversity being our greatest strength we today feel immensely proud of our nation men and our county. Being proud and responsible citizens of India, we wish Happy 74th Independence Day from the entire team of Jagacha AIkatan.
We feel extreemly proud for being responsible to be able to carry out our rich Indian tradition to the entire world. The performances in several Embassy, being able to represent India for years give us immense pleasure. May we continue this legacy though our budding extreemly talented students.
Please bless us and all our students so that we can make the county proud all the time
Krishnashtami, the Hindu festival that celebrates the birth of Nandalala, the eighth avtar of Vishnu. Krishna is born in an area of chaos. It was a time when persecution was rampant, freedoms were denied, evil was everywhere and when there was a threat to his life by his uncle King Kansa. Immediately following the birth at Mathura, his father Vasudeva Anakadunbhi takes Krishna across the Yamuna, to foster parents in Gokul, named Nanda and Yashoda. This legend is celebrated on Janmashtami by people keeping fast, singing devotional songs of love for Krishna, and keeping a vigil into the night.

Speech or language, we use them in order to interchange feelings. It may either be in form of gestures, emotional expressions, speech or written language.
Children, if taught kathak, can achieve the skill a lot faster and easily. For Kathak involves a lot of "bol padhan" where the student is made to utter the bols. In that process, babbling becomes clear and words of correct pronunciations are easy to develop.
Even in adults, ones suffering due to lack of confidence and having problem with public speaking can benefit from Kathak Dance. An integral part of it being bol padhan, where the dancer utters bol in counting with taal in front of audience for clarity and then performs. Confidence being another important factor is abundant in Kathak Dancers, they are influenced by there Gurus who they learn from. They have more comprehensive powers than the rest due to critical thoughts of dance form.
Development of Creativity:-
"Kathak" is a mixed form Persian Style of dance and traditional Indian dance. To be able to mix both the forms and liberty that the form presents to practitioners make them unique and creative.
Some bols of the form can be presented in innumerable ways. Dancer composes and do it a lot of times differently for students with varied personality. Other than that, the bhav portion, where dancer acts makes him creative. he takes care of each and everything in his presentation. From lights to set he learns it a and utilizes his creativity to bring out the best. he learns makeup or have keen interest in it. He also have interest in Fashion Designing, for every performance he wears something new and extra ordinary either by mix matching or by designing a whole new set of costume.
Dancers are a lot more than what audience sees.He needs to know to paint, it helps him to beautify his postures and movements aesthetically, They have intellectual imagination power. Thus the form being a mixed bag of traditional literature with contemporary takes helps develop in creative side of dancers.
Devolopment of Understanding:-
The ability to achieve a grasp of the nature, significance or explanation of something and to have a clear idea of it is called understanding. Kathak's bol padhans are solely are mathematical concepts which have specific "Som" and students need to have good understanding skill to be able to perform it. The basic footwork on tintaal-"Dha Dhin Dhin Dha Dha Dhin Dhin Dha" need immense practice to do it flawlessly. Hard practice and deep understanding of small minute things in performance helps individuals grow there understanding skill.
On the Occasion of World Dance Day, we will mention Seven ways through this week in which a dancer benefits from Kathak Dance.
Physical Development: It can be subdivided into a number of different patterns, they are:
1. Body Size:- Pre-natal and post-natal environment other than hereditary, influence the height and weight to a great extent. If the environment provided to them promote Kathak Dance, body size i.e height and weight is said to develop faster as compared to lay kids.
2. Rhythm:- A strong, regular repeated pattern of movement of sound helps our body and mind to focus and is capable of controlling our breathing rate.
3. Muscle:- Strengthening and control over them is obtained few muscles which we hardly use in our daily life tends to weaken like muscles of our face namely corrugator supercilii muscle located in the medial and end of the eyebrow. Movements in these muscles ensure proper functioning and reduces chances of facial paralysis.
4. While talking about body size, two most vital points are height and weight. Height and weight though is hereditary to a great extent, environment factors also contribute to it.
5. Right amount of sleep is essential, which is gained from physical tiredness through movements of Kathak.
6. Staying active is again one factor, while dancing our body movements results in exercise which help in strengthen building flexibility, etc.
7. Practicing good posture is again one factor which makes us fit. Poor posture result in making us look shorter. Slumping or slouching along with neck and back pain stays away when one practices Kathak, for postures are corrected.
8. Exercises like stretching, dry land swim, jogging, spine stretch etc are said to boost growth of height, there are certain movements which is used in kathak dance. Due to repetitive patterns of use of those movements in any presentation leads to growth.
9. Body proportion:- Movements of Kathak leads to growth of body in perfect proportions. A lot of bodily disabilities or proportional dysfunctions are healed. Hands and legs look smooth and bulging belly disappears giving way to soft and perfect body proportions.
10. Muscles and Fat:- Hastaks(hand movements) in Kathak dance and foot works helps strengthening muscles. Dancer gains full control over them and this being a good form of exercise dose not let fat to store, thus reducing obesity.
11. Bones:- Regular practice of the dance form strengthens bones lowering risk of fracture.
12. Motor Development:- The development of control over bodily movements through the coordinated activity of the nerve centers, the nerves and the muscles. Kathak dance being interesting to the child, motivates it in resulting it to make them mature enough to learn new movements, to practice them under proper guidance, Even in adults, Kathak's footsteps along with variations in hand movement promotes development of motor skills. Dancer hears bol padhan from his or her teacher, reacts accordingly and moves his or her foot works and body movements as per that. Chakkar(spins) in kathak helps dancer to gain body balance and leg muscles also strengthens.
