Kartik Fine Arts presents
MAD and DIVINE women
Mystic saint poets of India and beyond
Natya Darshan Seminar
Dear Ms. Anita
All said and done opportunities do knock at our (KFA) doors. But in case
of a transparent person like you, the Divine makes the extra effort of
not only knocking at KFA's doors through you but also opening them ajar!
That is why this entire conference was spruced with Divinity, Grace,
Presence & Radiance. Thank you for making it an absolute grandeur
and the year after will and should take it to the next level in content
& all other attributes!
I wholeheartedly thank your Team for the well coordinated rhythm in the
whole conference, visible in everything the Team did! Looking forward to
the next year with much more attributes!

The three days of "madness" and
"divinity" were wonderful! I so enjoyed the sessions and the
performances. I believe that the entire event was a huge success, and
Anita with her usual professional capabilities has made yet another
significant mark on the Chennai scene.
The coverage by Narthaki.com was commendable as it is such an important
site for Indian dance and we all diaspora folks really appreciate

This December in Chennai with the 'Mad-n-Divine' group was an
unforgettable, beautiful, exhilarating, beyond-this-world (I can go on
and on!) experience. The support and encouragement that I received from
all of you and especially Anitaji, was unforgettable.
I sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart and on behalf of the
entire Lasya team for this wonderful, exhilarating experience of
performing in Chennai, meeting other eminent artists, listening and
sharing their thoughts and witnessing their fabulous presentations. Our
entire stay in Chennai was like being in another paradigm altogether... A
'Mad-N-Divine' paradigm - an entire world on its own.
I am eagerly looking forward to seeing you all again.

Dear Dr. Ratnam
Thank you very much for inviting me for the conference. Working on
a new subject was a thorough learning experience. But there is
some more which I can say. You have set a benchmark regarding
organizing conferences/conclaves. The opening of door, the stage
arrangements were something which I can think of implementing in my
place. Please let me comment, the sarees and jewellery
complimented each other and indicated your level of involvement in this
Conference. It was a feast for the mind and eyes with a range of
speakers and performers.
The staff was very helpful and co-operative. I can understand, the sleepless nights they underwent.
Thank you for the hospitality and the lovely dinner. Maitreyi thanks you.

Thank you for the wonderful event you designed; and thanks to your great
team too who took such good care of us that we felt welcome and could
concentrate on the exchange of ideas!
The conclave was special - and nurturing - in many ways and I was delighted to be a part of it.
