"Neelima and Meha Arangetram is one of the most memorable event for me. Congratulations to Guru Smt. Selvi Pragasam whose choreography (Kalanityam school of Bharathanatyam) was really remarkable bringing out the best out of both Mom and the daughter. Mom's passion and Daughter's perseverance was very evident thru' the whole process ( not just the arangetram day)." - Prasanna Ranganathan
