Nepathya - centre for excellence in Koodiyattam from Kerala is the ancient Sanskrit drama theatre. They're the first element that UNESCO recognised as their First Intangible Cultural heritage of India.
Koodiyattam is a 3000 years old tradition as it believed, but has evidence of orally being passed on to different generations for atleast 2000 years. It is a Sanskrit drama performance which can last long from a minimum of two hours upto 42 days. All the makeup they wear and the costumes are natural and handmade respectively. It is generally perfomed in the 'Koothambalam' which is a place inside the premises of temple for many occasions.
It's 2 days since I witnessed the energetic and enthralling performance of Nepathya's Koodiyattam and I still can't get enough of it.
It was such an engaging performance, I totally was immersed with their act. Their expressions, their command on Sanskrit and the energy they have for Playing MIZHAVU and the coordination between the Mizhavu players and the actors!!! Wow I don't have words to describe them.
The Narasimha entry and Vaali's death are the scenes which I really got away with it. Totally their act of 'Balivadham' which was performed for 2:30 hours was totally engaging and I got a minimum of 100 goosebumps throughout the act and I felt chills through my spine.
Very much surprising that all of them are training since their age of 5 and they're some group really shows such infectious energetic imapct on their audience through their antique plays.

I was 7 years old when I started playing. I begged my parents to get me a keyboard after hearing my dad play some classical piano pieces on his stereo. Eventually they gave in and put me in piano lessons and it's been one of the best things to happen to me in my life :)
Though it wasn't a skill that came naturally to me nor would I consider myself a prodigy, piano gave me a medium through which I could express myself... Express my sadness, my joy, my happiness. It has instilled in me and strengthened the value of patience, of determination, of focus and of appreciation for the arts and for culture in general.
I recently passed my grade 7 ABRSM Music exam and I have one more grade to go before completing my piano studies; but music is something you never stop learning, you never stop practicing and you never stop perfecting, and I don't think I ever will.
