I take the pleasure of informing you of the birth of "Varnam" - Colours of Classical Indian Culture e.V., born on June 30, 2012.

This registered society that propagates India’s classical cultural hues, was formed as an off-shoot of years of nurturing the ‘Indische Tanzakademie’ run by me to teach Bharathanatyam and Kuchipudi – the two southern Indian classical dances that I am proficient in. My quest for reaching out to other classical forms such as Kathak, Manipuri, Odissi, Kathakali, Mohiniattam, Hindustani and Karnatak music, as also the lesser known arts such as Kalriapattu, Theyyam, Yakshgana,etc.,to the discerning audience of the West, particularly the Germans, led me to lay foundation for the ” Varnam”.
