Extremely honoured on receiving the Bharat Kala Ratna by Navaneetham Culturaltrust India. This has become possible because of Adhyapak and my parents that allowed a little seed to grow under their shed of love, care, trust, guidance and support. My gratitude to all my teachers, mentors, my friends and well wishers for being a part of this wonderful journey. It's a long journey ahead and always need your love and blessings. Thank you Navaneetham Cultural Trust once again for believing in my work. I accept this honour on behalf of the entire Sattriya fraternity. It'll always motivate all of us to work further towards the understanding of art and aesthetics.
