PRIYALASYA ARTICLES - VIDEO SECTION - RAAS By GEETA CHANDRAN

Smt.P.Ranganayaki (1914-2005) was dedicated to the Shri Subrahmanya svami temple in Tiruttani at the age of 17.  She was trained by her grandmother Smt.Subburatnamma (1871-1950) who wrote down her entire ritual, artistic and social repertoire in Telugu, Sanskrit and Tamil.
Between 1977-1988 Smt.P.Ranganayaki taught  this repertoire  of ritual, song and dance to Saskia Kersenboom; as a token of her acceptance of Saskia as her student-heir she handed  over this family manuscript to her.

Rich information on her life and art can be found in Saskia's dissertation 'Nityasumangali - Devadasi Tradition in South India' (PhD 1984, and published 1987, 1998, 2002, 2011, 2016, 2018). The work inspired many scholars and artists but was also heavily plagiarised and distorted in writing, performance, films and novels.

Smt.P. Rangayanakai never received an Indian national award, honour or 'Padma Bhusan' but deserves to be remembered in her own Voice. We hear her voice in this short video (2004, New York, Columbia University).

The excerpt features  Pushpanjali and Padam 'Manci dinamu' as taught by her to Saskia Kersenboom.
