Chennai: The State government is looking forward to have a policy for
culture, said Minister for Tamil Official Language and Tamil Culture and
Archeology K Pandiarajan.

He said this at a function organised by Rotary Club of Chennai Mitra here
recently, where ‘NadanaKalaiImayam Award’ was presented to V P Dhananjayan
and ‘NaatyaKalasagaram Award’ to Shanta Dhananjayan, the legendary Natya
couple of India, together known as The Dhananjayans.

Pandiarajan mentioned about how he admired the Bharatanatyam exponents The
Dhananjayans and would like them to contribute more to the nation in
joining the political discourse when it comes to art and social issues, a
press release said.

He said his Ministry is looking to have a policy for culture and requested
that eminent people like The Dhananjayans should contribute with ideas in
framing the policy. He also had a word of appreciation on the award titles
and its symbolism – Mountain for the male and Ocean for the female.
Madras High Court judge Justice R Subramanian spoke about Bharatanatyam,
its origin and its being the oldest known classical dance form in Tamilnadu.
Accepting the awards, The Dhananjayans said that they were delighted to
receive the award.

Rotary Club of Chennai Mitra president Saravanan, vocational service
director S Saiseshan, Rotarians Rajesh and Mohan were present.
