Your post triggered more interesting delectable memories via feed backs from others reading of which transported me to olden days at Triplicane chennai then Madras of 1954. 2. As a boy of ten or eleven, I used to escort my sister to Bharatha Natiyam school owned by three sisters and used to marvel visitors clad only in sarees or halfsarees accompanying there wards. 3. And the arengetram - breath taking dance by young ones sporting super costumes with glittering stage roof light. Costumes no doubt add to the ambience of the place and performers. Thanks and Regards.
