ABOUT

Born to Smt Vijayalakshmi and Shri G V L N Sastry in a modest South Indian Telugu Brahmin family, I spent most of my life in Hyderabad, Telangana, India. My typical day as a child never saw boredom. I was either practicing math (with ear plugs & music), dancing, singing, playing veena, painting, doing hand-embroidery, stitching & sewing, out shopping on the streets with my mom, cleaning the house like a freak (only to be named one by my brothers) or bossing over my younger brother in the name of teaching him. I connected more with arts and math than mere mortals. You could always hear me say “What’s next ma?” and trying my luck checking if I can do something unrelated to what I was doing. My brothers claim I mostly got away with irrational asks. A hyper, smart, witty, efficient, warm, skilled, poised, energetic mother can be an inspiration.

I truly believe that one life is not enough to absorb all the knowledge in this world, this calls for one to be a student for life. In short, my beliefs echo the famous quote that reads …

“The capacity to learn is a gift; the ability to learn is a skill; the willingness to learn is a choice

Dance

I started learning Indian Classicial Dance (Andhra Natyam) at the age of 4 under the tutelage of great gurus like Late Padmasri Dr, Nataraja Ramakrishna and Acharya Shri Kala Krishna. I have a diploma in Indian classical dance with over 500 performances all over the world to my credit, a state level graded artist at the cultural affairs department and Doordarshan, won all India first prize for three years straight in a row, a teacher for several years. and a active choreographer. I currently perform at my spare time for my not-for-profit banner “Nartanasala” with a sole intention of encouraging talented artists and spreading awareness of unique art forms that are on the verge of becoming extinct.
