About This Book

This is a story about a true dance pioneer in Singapore - the late Krishna Pillay Bhaskar. Not only was he a genuine pioneer within the island nation's Indian classical dance scene, he also witnessed and participated in seminal episodes that helped shape the overall performing arts landscape in Singapore. There were few in Singapore who dedicated their lives to the preservation, practice and promotion of the Indian dance arts with as much passion, perseverance and dignity, and sustained it over a longer period of time, than K.P. Bhaskar. Affectionately known as "Uncle" to his legion of students and to many in the arts community, he stood out as an outstanding example of how a personal voyage of artistic self-discovery inadvertently created a legacy, in the country that he chose to call home.
