This is Lima Das, a seasoned Odissi dancer and teacher, who has earned laurels for her dance performances in national and international platform. Hailing from a non descriptive village of Rajasunakhela in Ranpur block of Nayagarh district in Odisha, Lima has a big dream in life. She not only hones her skill of Odissi dance form but is also imparting dance training to the young girls of the village. Lima has started four institutions in her home district where she teaches classical Odissi dance form free of cost.
Her proud father Kishore Chandra Das says that he noticed Lima’s passion towards Odissi dance since her childhood. There is a saying, ‘Tulasi dui patraru base’ meaning, Basil's seedling spreads its aroma right from the first two leaves. Similarly the dance talent of Lima was noticed since her childhood.
Just like a beacon of light for these young girls, Lima’s selflessness towards teaching the classical dance form of Odissi to the future generation is a step towards keeping this art form move forward . Possibly one of the oldest Indian classical dance forms of Odissi is popular till this date due to efforts of dedicated dancers and gurus like Lima.
