Our Guruji's Comment

For many years ,Rajeshwari has associated herself with the Dance form of kathak with determination and hard work.
I count Rajeshwari among few of my disciples, who has dedicated herself to take forward ‘Jaipur Gharana’ along with its traditional value and purity.
Every year Rajeshwari’s group ‘Sancharee’ organizes cultural evening of kathak dance called ‘Guru bin aisi kaun kare’,in memory of my father and guru pandit KundanLal Gangani.
It reflects an examplery work of Rajeshwari dedication towards Jaipur Gharana and its guru. seeing Rajeshwari’s hard work and talent, every guru will aspire to have a disciple like her.it pray to god for Rajeshwari’s success and bright future and will always be there to help Rajeshwari take forword this big initiative of Sancharee.

Contribution

On one hand Rajeshwari Kumar has presented the traditional and classical form of Kathak in front of her audience by keeping its sanctity alive, at the same time she has experimented kathak with contemporary forms of music without compromising on the pure form of Jaipur gharana. For Rajeshwari Kathak is meditation and spirituality as she finds her connects with almighty through her dancing. Her life revolves around Kathak.
