WHAT THE PRESS SAYS

Hima Devi in “The Afternoon Despatch and Courier”, Bombay
“Into this galaxy of art kept at a pinnacle of divine yearning , stepped Radhika Radhakrishna, Geeta’s extraordinary talented daughter. Petite in form and face, her large limpid eyes express a myriad different aspects of the love we have for Krishna. Her sweet smile has a naughty twist to it. She is just the right age to throw herself with complete abandon into a full blooded rendition of the Leela’s of Krishna. Furiously energetic, her Mohiniattam springs to vigorous life and ripples of happiness and fills our being. Her vivacious rendering is so lively, injected as it is with an exquisite touch of mischief, that we begin to glimpse and recognize a new star. At the end of “Nritta Swara Manjari” we know that Radhika is well on her way to stardom. A virtuoso in her own right, who will brighten the firmament, with her brilliant, sparkling personality for many years.”

Susheela Misra in “The Hindustan Times”, Lucknow
“The most accomplished and promising among Geeta’s students, is her abundantly gifted daughter Radhika. Radhika has been dancing duets with her mother and winning accolades, here and abroad. The mature grace of the mother and the vivacious charm of the teenaged daughter form a perfect combination on stage.”

Leela Venkataraman in “The Hindu”, Delhi
"Radhika danced with joy and correctness.”
