“‘Sakal ban’ two ways from Madrid. We have thought about making our dual versions of this beautiful track ‘Sakal ban’ from ‘Heeramandi’ but then decided we will combine both Odissi and Bharatanatyam in the same piece,” wrote Purnata Mohanty while sharing a video on Instagram. She tagged Dr Vinatha Sreeramkumar in her post.

In the caption, she further informed her followers about the origin of Sakal Ban. “Sakal Ban originates from the devotion of a poet, Amir Khusro, to his mentor/guru Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya, driven by a quest to uplift his spirits after a personal loss. Embracing Hindu traditions, Khusro adorned himself in yellow attire, symbolising hope. He was inspired by Hindu women adorned in yellow attire, offering mustard flowers to their deity. Presenting the heartfelt composition of 'Sakal Ban' with mustard flowers, he evoked a radiant smile from Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya. This transformative moment made Sakal Ban synonymous with Basant Panchami celebrations at the shrine, marked by yellow attire and soul-stirring qawwalis.”

In the video, Mohanty performs the Odissi dance while Sreeramkumar shows the Bharatanatyam form.

An Instagram user wrote, “Just two different forms of femininity. Odissi is the soft, graceful side of a female, whereas Bharatnatyam is the powerful and sharp representation of a female. Hence, both dance forms are beautiful and something to be admired.”

“Both dance forms are best at their point,” expressed another.

A third commented, “It is so blissful to witness two distinct dance forms that originated from Tandav: Odissi and Bharatanatyam.”

“This is so beautiful to watch!” shared a fourth.

A fifth joined, “So beautiful.”

“Best thing I have seen today!” said a sixth.
