It was a pleasure to be part of the panel discussion on Dance Photography with my dear friends, eminent dance photographers, Sri Innee Singh and Sri Prasad Siddhanti. The discussion session was hosted and anchored by Ms Meha Jha Kasliwal, the creator of the Anantaya Kathak Dance Festival, that she organized this year over the web due to COVID. Meha is a distinguished Kathak dancer herself, and she imparts training for children and youth in Kathak at her dance school, Mudra Academy of Performing Arts, in Jaipur.

I learnt a lot during the interaction about Innee and Prasad during I have not known, though over the years, I have learnt a lot about dance photography discussing during shoots in auditorium, where we often meet in the evenings.
