India is a magically appealing country. The India’s soul appears through the Indian classical dance. Mohiniattam is an Indian classical dancing style of Kerala state. Exclusively women perform dancing in this style. Oh gods, give me the strength not to get carried away by an Indian dancer!

Alexandra Vodopiyanova is an Indian dance performer. She dances the Mohiniattam style. Alexandra Vodopiyanova has made me an offer, which I could not reject. Well, I am going to see Indian dancing.
“I am a seeker – like a bird soaring high in the sky, in that moment of flying – a blissful state in the air, where you are free – full of space, a vast expanse of azure blue sky!
Let me dance, dance and dance, like the bird that flies in the boundless skies, higher and higher – farther and farther up the wide, blue horizon!” Dr. Geeta Radhakrishna
Travel to the Country of the Gods is a well-done performance, which is related to India’s culture. It took place in Moscow in the State Museum of Oriental Art on November 9th 2014. Alexandra Vodopiyanova [the Mohiniattam style], Natalia Butyrskaja and Elina Schepkina [the Bharatanatyam style] told us about the Dravidian civilization legacy with the help of the Indian classical dance.
For those who got carried away by Indian dancing here is Alexandra Vodopiyanova’s Internet page. Enjoy!

This article presents my personal view. I don’t pretend I tell you any kind of absolute objectivity.
I love Russia and I love Russians. My personal slogan is “I love! I know! I tell!”
I’m very sorry for my bad English. First of all I try to tell you about lovely Russia, about the Russian mind and way of thinking. I don’t pretend I speak correct and fluent English.
I can help you in any projects related to Russia in the fields of deep non-standard tourism and independent journalism. Also you can buy some my texts and photos. Contact me by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org if you want. Welcome to real Russia!
