Speaking about the significance and auspiciousness of the occasion, the Koode director wrote, “Vijayadashami is always so special because of the new re-start to every type of expression one learns. It’s one of the many treasured moments that we have as students of classical dance and music. Now the only dancing I do is on Vijayadashmi with fond memories of a past life!” Several industry colleagues, including actor-director Geetu Mohandas and actors Priyanka Nair and Srindaa, commented with heart emojis on the post.
Today is an important day for the arts, with children being initiated not only in the world of letters by prominent gurus, but also into dance, music and other performing arts. It is also a day to pay respect to teachers and several Mollywood celebrities used the occasion to share pictures with their gurus.
Actor Rima Kallingal posted a photo of a dance lesson, with colleague Ramya Nambeesan and Vangu scriptwriter Shabna Mohammed – which they too shared on their social media – and captioned it, ‘Keep learning all your life’.
Scriptwriter and actor Murali Gopi had an almost political message while wishing everyone on the occasion, captioning a picture of Goddess Durga with ‘The day of fiery feminine’.
