A warm welcome to all. With all your blessings, I am presenting my latest editorial online magazine Sandhya Patrike, a platform which will accommodate art and culture, reports, ventures, articles, columns related to artists, reviews of the show, posts, and writeups etc.

Sandhya Patrike belongs to its readers. Its a reflection of your responses, opinions and views that will be presented here with proficiency and adherence.

Karnataka is the nucleus of cultural abundance. It’s a sanctorum to various artists of distinct artforms. Bangalore is recognized as a hub of diverse artforms on the world map. Here, hundreds of dynamic theatre groups perform throughout the year. Bangalore witnesses regular experiment on creative art, ingenious displays of different artforms and shows, mentors amateurs for their future.

Umpteen dance schools, accomplished dance gurus, enthusiastic and dedicated apprentices are still conserving the classical heritage of Karnataka. Pursuits and performances, stage shows of various dance forms like Bharatanatyam, Kuchipudi, Odissi, Mohiniattam and Kathak, preserve the artistry and our pride alive. Innovative dance drama, musicals with enthralling concepts and fascinating choreographies continue to entice virtuosos. Eccentric dance shows, arangetram, illustrative workshops conducted by experts, lectures, convocations etc are organized around the year. Correspondingly, numerous music concerts are also held regularly in Bangalore. So, through this magazine I want to reach all  my aesthetic friends around the world, to assist and to keep updated them about our art and culture.

The idea behind prompting this platform is to reach out all the art enthusiasts to aware and keep updated about any art related programs around the city, which is otherwise unfeasible to know. Notification of programs, reviews and reports will be published. Hence framing this platform as a foreground to connect all the art lovers, artists, gurus, academies and event organizers, meanwhile I request all to make most of it, to get connect, to develop and to strengthen the relationships with each other. Inevitably I welcome your valuable feedbacks and suggestions to encourage and foster this project.
