Testimony From Lewis Segal


“The most exquisite Ranganiketan export, however, was easily ‘Vasanta Rasa’, a classic ritual depicting the God Krishna interacting playfully with His milkmaids. Accompanied by flute, drum, tiny cymbals and a woman’s singing, it definitely reflected the humor, refinement and spirituality of the Manipuri people. In their layered short-sleeved tops over stiff wide, gleaming, bell-like skirts, these milkmaids looked like nothing else on Earth, and, showering Krishna with flower-petals, they created a memorably joyous dance spectacle.”
