Uma

Uma is based on a marathi poem by the late Vasant Bapat, which is inspired by Kalidas’s Kumarsambhav. Through Parvati, Kalidas gives us a unique insight into 'Stree-Shakti' the power, strength of a woman. Why should penance be the prerogative of men? A woman too can do it. Parvati (Uma) the daughter of Himalay, went through tough penance to achieve her goal. Uma's determination, her patience and perseverance, won her the love of Lord Shiva.

Our ballet 'Uma' is not just the same old story of Shiv-Parvati; it is the story of a woman unfazed by a man's anger, a woman strengthened by her own determination, a woman convinced that she is the inspiration to creation.
