MS - an inspiration and role model for Arthi Kumar
Ghatam V Suresh -
Kumari Arthi Kumar is a rare phenomenon of sincerity and true ideals in today's context of undue projections backed by affluence and power. Her interview reflects this. She is justly talented, deserving support which I also give as a duty to posterity. Negating the common beliefs about western culture, she and her sister Pooja Kumar are truthfully humble and dedicated. Some of our India-based upcoming artistes must imbibe these qualities to survive in the long-run. The gurus and parents also have big roles in this. My best wishes to Arthi and Pooja.

Very mature and inspiring interview. Aarti really loves to sing and it shows. She is very blessed to have parents who support her and wonderful gurus who have selflessly taught her rigorously. Congratulations and may the Almighty bestow many many musical years for you.

Dear Arthi, It was wonderful to read your interview! I am sure you will accomplish all that you have stated and a lot more too! Have a wonderful time in India! Charu

That was really a very exhaustive interview Priya. I have enjoyed myself thoroughly working with you in all our group productions.Yes, like you said, performing in solos and groups really complement each other, contrary to what many believe. I have personally gained a lot from the experience of working in our groups. It has greatly enhanced my solo performances. And the day is not far when we will all be performing in the most coveted slots in leading sabhas. Best wishes to you for a wonderful career in dance about which you are so passionate about.

It was a nice. I have had the wonderful opportunity to work with her for Harikesanjali-a margam on Harikesanallur Muthiah bhagavathar compositions. We both were an instant hit with each other. I enjoyed every moment of that experience - be it the delicious chocolate cake she gave me the first time we rehearsed at her peaceful home or the time when she came to my class all drenched in the rains. I am thankful to God for having shown me what fun it can be working with graceful dancers like Priya akka. I am sincerely hoping for all her research to be fruitful.
