Carnatic music, vina and Bharatanatyam are part of Tamil identity. The intent to preserve that remains strong. But once they have the arangetram, the final ceremony, they do not perform it ever again. The moment it is finished, they quit dancing. For me, that is heartbreaking.Obviously, the life of a professional dancer/teacher is not for everyone—maybe just for five percent. One may get married, have a baby and have family duties to perform. Even then, dance should at least continue as personal sadhana. But that is not done.
