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.

Durga Petals Launches The Urban Achiever Drive In Bangalore!

On August 30, 2014, Durga Petals launched a drive to felicitate and honor Bangalore’s top achievers in their chosen field of work. They have excelled in their art to the levels of professional excellence and are now inspiring countless others to pursue their dreams.

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit. – Aristotle.

Pursuit of dreams requires a lot more than acquiring high value skills. The sacrifices involved are immense and one has to be willing to put up with countless hurdles on the way but those who eventually make it are the ones who possess an unflinching desire to attain the impossible and go the extra mile.

Keeping the above in mind we wanted to recognize and honor such achievers from Bangalore who have attained great success in their crafts and are now pushing the boundaries of what is possible in their respective fields.

Bangalore’s numero uno corporate MC (Master of Ceremonies) Mr. Abbas was the first proud recipient of the Urban Achiever award. Mr. Abbas is one of the most recognized faces on the MC circuit in India and has some of the biggest corporate names in his list of clientele.

Durga Petals will further this drive and we will continue to recognize and honor Bangalore’s Urban Achievers in times to come. Many congratulations to MC Abbas once again on adding yet another feather to his proud MC hat.

The only way to do great work is to love what you do. – Steve Jobs.

We hope MC Abbas and other Urban Achievers like him continue to thrive, keep chasing their dreams and making Bangalore proud by doing what they love and loving what they do.
