NATARAJ : DANCING SHIVA
Lord Shiva is judged as the best dancer in the universe.
His grace and vigour knows no bounds when the famous Tandava
is being performed. But Tandava is reputed to be the dance
of destruction. When the earth shudder under his thundering
footsteps, when the wind becomes a thunderstorm in his tossing
long hair locks, when the heavens melt in the heat generated
by his movements, when the water flood in earth with the graceful
hand gestures, Tandava is the dance of Shiva before the awesome
destruction of this creation begins.
