Photo of the day – The light within!

The beauty of this photo is also the character itself. Sonali Mahapatra is performing Oddissi at Khajuraho festival of dances 2015. An accomplished dancer, Sonali lost her major hearing power due to a medical negligence when she was just five. But she never let that come as a hinderance in her commitment to learn dance. She can’t listen to swara and hence now uses a hearing aid and dances by listening to just the beats of the taal.
