Mugdha is a woman. She is a symbol of beauty , truth. Mugdha-the
woman can challenge any benchmark of beauty with her inner confidence.
Over the centuries Radha has symbolized beauty and eternal
love and her love for Krishna can be felt in the unending quest
for beauty and truth.
Gauri Diwakar's Mugdha uses the text that describes the beauty
of radha. It is a journey of this experience of eternal love
that can be transformative, where the beauty of Radha goes beyond
mere physicality, where her soul lies bare only holding love
for Krishna. Where she dances abandon and carefree spirit in
the flowering of the eternal love.
A portrayal of Mugdha through the classical dance form of Kathak
.With Radha as the inspiration for beauty, the lyrics and the
bandish have been rendered into musical compositions, that enhance
this depiction of eternal beauty.
The technical repertoire of Kathak has been woven into the
musical compositions and lyrics to form a tapestry of classical
dance that reflects the concept of eternal beauty.
