"Bharatyam Ardhyam Yashastham" goes the verse from the Natyashastra, as the scene opens to a veiw of the majestic Himalayas, the Sahastradhaara and the backwaters of Kerala with the flute music playing Raga Pahaadi. Much like these indelible features defining the geographical landscape of India, the Natyashastra of Bharata Muni defines the aesthetic and artistic contours of the Indian. Dr Padma Subrahmanyam's interaction with students establishes the all-pervading nature of this magnum opus, also called Natya Veda. Like the limitless Vedas with neither beginning nor end, it comprises intuitively revealed knowledge, its holistic approach linking artistic consciousness and the individual with the entirety of creation, even while theorising on fundamental principles governing artistic expression, through the medium of movement, sculpture, painting, music and language. Hence it is both Natya Veda and Natyashastra. Presented by Dr. Padma Subrahmanyam Introduced by Leela Venkataraman 12 episode Session
