Americans Turn Torchbearers of Kannada?

So it's the Americans who 'light the torch of Kannada' this time? Reports SOM:
AMERICAN STUDENTS PERFORM BHARATHANATYA

Mysore, Nov. 16 (DV)- American students performed Bhara-thanatya as per Indian style of rhythm. With Indian traditional dresses like saree and kachche, the students both boys and girls performed like Indians and received applause.

The Bharathanatya formed part of the progremme "Study away, teach away" by the students of Connecticut College of America and was performed at the valedictory function organised by JSS Educational Institutions at Sri Jayachamarajendra College of Engineering (SJCE) here on Saturday.

Bharathanatya was performed by a troupe of 12 students for 30 minutes. Initially they performed for 15 minutes to the tune of devotional song on Goddess Chamundeshwari. This was followed by a 10-minute performance to the tune of music followed by stepping for 5 minutes to the tune of Kannada song Hachchevu Kannadada Deepa.

Nruthyagiri Director Krupa Phadke had trained them.

If only Kannadigas understand the message in Hachchevu Kannadada Deepa unlike the Americans who only danced to a good song...
