Divinity Series was born out of the confluence of Jyotsna Shourie’s notable achievements in the art of Bharatanatyam, and Deepak Shourie’s years of experience in a myriad of corporate ventures spanning media, entertainment and music.

Divinity Series premiered in 2013 when three of India’s foremost Bharatanatyam dancers, Rama Vaidyanathan from Delhi, Meenakshi Srinivasan from Chennai and Mythali Prakash from Los Angeles performed on 27/28/29 September. Meticulously planned and executed performances, backstage interviews and live webcasts across the globe, made this an outstanding event. DD Bharati and Facebook were the Media partners. The ‘spirit of the temple’ was recreated through these magical performances and provided the audience with a captivating experience. Preceding each evening’s dance programme, select members of the much acclaimed Ghandharva Mahavidyalaya choir sang specially composed invocatory music.

On 27/28 September 2014, the eagerly awaited event of Divinity Series brought to the audience of Delhi, singers and dancers of extraordinary talent. Inaugurating the proceedings was O S Arun from Chennai whose soulful voice set the mood for the fare to follow. The popular and magical dancing duo, Surupa Sen and Bijayani Satpathy from Nrityagram Bangalore, presented to the packed audience, Odissi at its best. The following day saw the young and gifted Bharatanatyam artist Lakshmi Parthasarathy Athreya from Chennai, and the evening came to a close with the melodious strains of the well loved Hindustani vocalist Kaushiki Chakraborty from Kolkata.

In 2017, Divinity Series brings you a feast of dance at The Stein Auditorium, India Habitat Centre featuring Vidha Lal – Kathak, Parshwanath Upadhye – Bharatanatyam and Meenakshi Srinivasan – Bharatanatyam, on 6, 7 & 8 April respectively at 7:30pm.
