Thanks, drb! Interesting items in that virtual exhibition.

I was unaware that Ravi Shankar had a dancing brother (Oct. 1933). What a talented family!

Thanks indeed -- these are great!

And yes, Uday Shankar was a very well-known dancer in the 20's and forward. He toured with Pavlova, and was, for many people in the US, the first example of Indian dance they saw.
