The guide starts by reciting a classical hymn and then goes on to perfectly imitate the neck and eye brow movements of the dance form. Then he showed some body movements and mudras of the form. He even portrayed the movements to represent Lord Parvati and Lord Shiva. Netizens believe he is no less than a professional dancer.
