"Arya Tara" Anita Ratnam and Arangham Dance Theatre presented Arya Tara, showcasing five pieces that focus on five Goddesses during the Chennai festival season for the following sabhas.

The lyrics have been taken from slokas and traditional compositions. Anita presented a solo on Buddhist Goddess Tara, an excerpt from "7 Graces", her recent production. It has no lyrics, and the commissioned music has the meditative quality of Buddhist chanting.
