"The sisters attracted the audience by their extraordinary and natural grace. The almost filigree like language of the fingers and the soft face expressions, the rounded movements of the bodies, all these contributed to a delightful picture.”"

"It was a long time since many of the Indian members of the audience had seen the glorious costumes with their full skirts, studded with the glittering miniature mirror, or seen the graceful whirling movements and subtle symbolic gestures of hands and feet in these specially evocative dancing."
