A five-day festival on Indian classical dance forms would be held in Chennai from February 25 to commemorate the birth anniversary of Kalakshetra founder Rukmini Devi.
The event, ‘Remembering Rukmini Devi’, to be organised by the Kalakshetra Foundation, would have performances in seven different classical dance forms from across the country.
In December 2009, 48 students of Sri Rama Nataka Niketan, Secunderabad, danced for an hour on clay pots to enter the Limca Book of World Records. In December 2011, they bettered their feat by presenting 50 students for the Indian World Records. The official World Record website describes it as, “… a visual treat… perform amazingly on the brass plate and inverted mud pots with three small brass pots on their head with lit candles in their hands for 60 minutes (non-stop).”
