Sitara Devi, the Kathak Queen

The AllaRakha Family deeply mourns the sudden passing away of Sitara Devi, the Kathak queen, on the 25th of Nov 2014. Sitara Devi was born in Calcutta in 1920 and moved to Mumbai at the age of 11. She became a leading Kathak dancer and helped bring the dance form to Bollywood. Rabindranath Tagor described her as the empress of dance, after watching her performance when she was just 16 years old. She will be dearly missed. Our condolences go out to her Family and Friends.
