While we proclaim about women empowerment in the modern times, we must remember the women who have created history to restore their rightful and dignified status in the ancient times. The scintillating Dance Drama “Velu Nachiyar” is staged to inspire the younger generation to be the women of courage and recreate history in their times.
“Velu Nachiyar” throws light on the fortitude, endurance, resilience, perseverance, tact, administrative ability and conviction of a brave woman, Velu Nachiyar who led to the retreat of the British Colonial Power. She was the first female ruler of India to take up arms against the British and ruled for 10 years – the glorious period of Sivaganga.
This exclusive Dance Drama is a feast to the eyes and panacea to break the shackles that women encounter in the present scenario.
