 The dancers first performed, Pushpanjali, a salutation with flowers in hands and then moved on to Alaripu meaning the first flowering and traditionally the first dance in the modern Bharatanatyam. Impressive performances for Bagilolu Kai Mugidu, poem in Kannada by poet Kuvempu describing medieval temples of Belur and Halebidu and Yoga Nritta, the presentation of yogic postures in classical dance and brief demonstration through dance and music were taken up the duo. The programme ended with Maha Ganapathim, a parting benediction in praise of Lord Ganesha, incidentally both loved in Thailand and India.
