#DeviDiaries - An initiative by Narthaki and NeoNarthaki
#DeviDiaries 2021 is an initiative of Narthaki & NeoNarthaki that highlights the power of 'Female Divinity'. This year, we brought back this concept in a bigger and exciting way!
The #DeviDiaries series featured some of the most prominent dancers in Indian Classical Dance, sharing their perspective on this very subject through new choreography. Visit Narthaki's (@narthakiofficial) or NeoNarthaki’s (@neonarthaki) Instagram handle to watch this!
In addition, the #DeviDiariesReelsChallenge was developed with the intention of putting a spotlight on young dancers, who shared 1 minute of their interpretation of Devi through Reels on NeoNarthaki's (@neonarthaki) Instagram handle.
