Visually impaired artist brings light to fine arts

The Temple of fine arts in Johor Bahru is once again organising a unique arts show, this time performed by a visually impaired artist from India.

The event will be held in Jothic auditorium, Johor Bahru at 7.00pm, on 29th April 2012.

Sunadha is unique cultural troupe from Samarthanam Trust, India. They will be performing Indian classical and folk dance.

According to Banumathi Krishnan, the head of the dance unit for the Johor Bahru Temple of Fine Arts, the proceeds from the tickets will be spent on the troupe, organising costs and some will be allocated for land funds.

The Temple of Fines arts is in the process of buying the current rented premises and needs support from all Indians and arts lovers to acquire the place.

The Temple of Fine Arts is a sanctuary for the arts founded by His Holiness Swami Shantanand Saraswathi.

In 1981 the famous Swamiji lit a lamp to symbolise the beginning of something very beautiful for the arts, especially music and dance.

The aim was to help Malaysian youth rediscover the cultural, artistic and spiritual wealth of their forefathers and to make it relevant to themselves and for future generations to come.
