After 17 years dedicated to the arts, Sarveshan continues to explore the nuances of Naatyam in India at Bharata Kalanjali, the home of The Dhananjayans, where he has had the privilege of playing key roles in their productions.

“In a society where dance does not share equal respect as mainstream professions, he has shown marvelous devotion, commitment and steadfastness in pursuing his dreams. He  upholds the values and ideals of Indian Culture in a time where these are becoming increasingly absent. To Bharatanaatyam and dance as a whole in South Africa, Sarveshan brings much needed expertise and he will help bring about a revival of the ever dwindling appreciation for our Classical Arts.” ~ Smt Darshana Rama, Vadhini Indian Arts Academy
