About BN and WWW:
Namaskaram! welcome to BN and WWW.
People Behind BN&WWW
This blog became an extension of the emails that I for years shared with a few friends and relatives. Nov. 2007 saw the birth of BN and WWW. The blog uses the fantastic free services of WordPress and there are no commercial undertones whatsoever. The blog was born to be a platform for information and discussion about “what’s happening in the world of Bharathanatyam”.
“I do not claim to be a great artist, guru or a reviewer… But I would introduce myself as a ” Bharathanatyam enthusiast…” Bharathanatyam” is my passion and I am happy to share it with all my readers. I believe that “Art is greater than the Artist”. And that “There is no Art without Artists”….
Academically I am working on my doctorate in Medical Sciences. I take that as an excuse to sometimes ignore this blog, comment and emails. But I promise I eventually get to all of them.
I have some great friends who keep this blog running. My humble pranams to all those who have lovingly carried Bharthanatyam along the way and continue to nurture it .
Pillars of BN&WWW
BN&WWW runs with the help from a committed group of people. They identify topics of interest, author posts, look after blog and calendar maintenance. Most importantly, they make up an informal editorial board that decides on appropriate course of action to controversial emails/comments. I am very happy to introduce a few of them to you.
Dr. Ragothaman Yennamalli completed his Ph.D in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics from Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. Apart from scientific interests, he is a student of Bharatanatyam learning from Guru Vijayalakshmi Ramanan, New Delhi.
How do articles Pop Up on this Blog?
Friends, yester-year classmates and a few readers-turned-supporters pitch in to identify and provide ideas or information for the posts on this blog. I also post in this blog excerpts of writings/thoughts that I find interesting; from what I read , hear and see. More often than not, it is a friends email or a readers’s comment that determines the topics that appear on this blog. I will cite the sources of articles, if they had one, with the best of intentions and to the best of my ability. But I cannot attest to the authenticity of all the articles, and comments from readers and other statements . I would suggest that contributors please submit the citation as I do not condone plagiarism. Readers are also requested to use their discretion :)..
Have something to say or add to our posts?
Readers are welcome to introduce themselves, express their thoughts and opinions on the articles posted. But do not slander or malign people for such comments are never going to see the light of the day in this blog. I personally moderate all the comments in this blog and if I have overlooked a real mean comment I always have friends who notice and bring to notice. Its quite a guillotine here for the malicious and weird comments.
