Event Details

By Devaki Pandit

An NCPA Presentation

Supported by Rukmani & Kishan Daiya Foundation

The concept of female divinity is indeed unique to the culture of the Indian subcontinent with the exception of a few tribes in Africa where it is attached to the aspect of fertility. The concept of Shakti as propagated in Hindu philosophy and culture offers an interesting and radically different approach to the issue of power and the feminine, which is otherwise equated with masculine.

As the female aspect of the divine, Devi is synonymous with Shakti, who is regarded as not only the creator of life but also the keeper and epitome of wisdom. Her incarnations include Saraswati who is a symbol of prosperity, Lakshmi who is a symbol of wealth and so on. Indian literature is replete with songs in praise of several manifestations of the divinity as Devi, Durga, Kali, Lakshmi, Parvati and Saraswati.

Having been initiated into music by her mother, Usha Pandit, Devaki Pandit has trained under distinguished gurus: Vasantrao Kulkarni, Kishori Amonkar and Jitendra Abhisheki. Coupled with musicality, her creativity has led to some interesting thematic projects.

Scheduled especially during the festival of Navratri, this musical presentation by Pandit is a celebration of the feminine aspect of the divine. Compositions that are primarily based on Indian raga music will be woven with relevant mythological stories.

Box Office: 26th August for Members & 29th August for Public
