Yes, one rendition of the tandava- Coomaraswamy wrote beautifully on that, and we have the chance here in Mauritius to have a quiet to have an institute devoted to the teaching of classical indian performing arts.

As a Catholic with Indian ancestry i sometimes wish we could consider the brahmanic and even bhakti texts, and the whole indian ‘classical’ culture as Classics on a par with Ancient Rome and Greece.

There is a poetry running in all this-to which i feel compelled to return at punctual times in my life-which, in truth, does not leave me.

Perhaps, like the Ephesians, i have not yet burned the books. But then i’m deeply suspicious of book burning.
