Obit/Tribute - Kuchipudi Guru Vempati Chinna Satyam (Oct 15, 1929 - July 29, 2012)

Guru Dr. Vempati Chinna Satyam dedicated his life to preserve, promote and propagate Kuchipudi in India and all over the world. A charismatic performer, a brilliant choreographer and an inspiring teacher, he has been largely responsible for the revival of Kuchipudi dance in post-independent India. Hence, the name Vempati Chinna Satyam has become synonymous with Kuchipudi, as one who put Kuchipudi dance on the world map. Along with Surya Rao, Andavilli Satyanarayana has authored a biography of Chinna Satyam.

  1. Why did you avoid the name of his most favorite disciple , Mrs. Anupama Mohan , who was with him for twenty more years?
