Shakti | Dance Performance by Yamini Reddy
The featured enthralling Indian Classical Dance performance by danseuse Yamini Reddy, a renowned kuchipudi exponent, forms part of 10 year celebration of Shakti, an initiative to empower the girl child by Anandmurti Gurumaa. It was held in 2010 at Siri Fort Auditorium, New Delhi that also presented the launch of signature album of Shakti titled Suno Suno Meri Awaaz. The project Shakti was born as a result of Anandmurti Gurumaa’s concern for the growing menace towards the girl child - female foeticide, the discriminatory treatment meted out to the girls, and the derogatory status of woman in various parts of the country. The aim of the project is to empower girls to make them independent, self-reliant and confident individuals and to eradicate the menace of female foeticide.
