On September 13, 2014, Durga Petals felicitated Ms. Manisha Mehta for her contributions to Bangalore’s artistic community at the Petals Experience Centre on outer ring road, Bangalore.
A Chartered Accountant by qualification who also owns a financial software company in Bangalore, Ms. Manisha is extremely passionate about the art of dance and runs a dance academy of her own called Dance Kala at Sarjapur road, Bangalore.
“Dance is the hidden language of the soul.” – Martha Graham.
Ms. Manisha is extensively trained in Bharat Natyam, Kathak and Ballet. She is a true all rounder when it comes to dance and has learnt dance forms as diverse and complex as – Jazz, Jive, Folk and Rock and Roll. She has performed on stage as well as for numerous television shows. She has many awards in her kitty which highlight her vibrant dancing talents. Her performances in Mauritius, India and the U.S. have enabled her to incorporate a distinct dance style all her own.
Durga Petals’ Urban Achiever drive was meant to recognize and honor Bangaloreans who are making a difference and inspiring others to tread the roads less traveled. It is our endeavor to bring these hidden gems of our society to public light because they deserve to be credited for their unflinching desire to perform, build, create, envision and in the process inspire countless others to do the same. Hence, we will continue to recognize and honor Bangalore top Urban Achievers.
“Dance is an art, paint your dream and follow it.” – Steven Thompson
Durga Petals will like to congratulate Ms. Manisha Mehta once again and we hope she continues to follow her passion and achieve greater heights so that other Bangaloreans can follow suit.
