Chief Guest and The convocation was addressed by:
Dr. Vyjayanthimala Bali
Professional Bharathanatyam Dancer. She had become a movie actress and dominated the silver screen in the 1950’s and 1960’s. But then she got married, retired from films when she was at her peak, and went back to pursue her number one passion – dancing. She not only dances, she also choreographs and composes. In her own words, dancing took her around the world much more than the movies did.
She has performed her art in many countries of the world. The most notable of them being her performances at:
The United Nations 20th Anniversary Celebrations of the Human Rights Day in 1969 in New York, USA. (She was the first Indian Dancer to ever give a Bharatanatyam recital at the United Nations.).
The International Opera House in Sydney, Australia.
The Adelaide Festival in Adelaide, Australia.
The Royal Opera Rallst Festival in Stockholm, Sweden.
The Holland Festival in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
The Autumn Festival in Paris, France.
Vyjayanthimala is also interested in politics and has actively participated in Indian politics. She was elected to the Lok Sabha (Lower House of the Indian Parliament) twice and was also nominated to the Rajya Sabha (Upper House of the Indian Parliament) once. She was very close to the then Indian Prime Minister, Smt. Indira Gandhi.
Vyjayanthimala, now over 70, still actively pursues her number one passion - dancing. She continues to do dance research and choreography and on special occasions even performs on stage. She is the Life President and Trustee of Natyalaya Academy of Classical Bharathanatyam and Music in her home town Chennai. She is also the Founder Trustee of Dr. Bali Pharma Foundation - a charitable trust, to serve the poor and downtrodden and to look after the welfare of women and children. She has now distanced herself from the movie industry and Mumbai (Bombay).
