“Science is curiosity about life, art is wonder at life, philosophy is an attitude towards life and religion is reverence for life”. True culture includes all these four aspects and therefore education in aesthetics is as essential if not more than mere intellectual or physical education.Keeping this in mind and aiming to bequeath the cultural legacy to our young children and making them experience mysticism embodied in the Indian Heritage, Seth Anandram Jaipuria School, Vasundhara Ghaziabad, in association with Spic Macay, organized a mesmerizing classical dance rendition by the renowned Kathak Dancer Rani Khanam ji – the proud recipient of 5th National Women Excellence Award 2012; Asian Cultural Council Fellowship on “World Dance and Islamic Culture”; The Govt. of India’s: Fellowship and the India Foundation’s Award as Outstanding Kathak Dancer, on August 13, 2019.
