Padma Bhushan Dr. (Smt) Kanak Rele

Nalanda Nritya Kala Mahavidyalaya was established with the sole purpose to provide and promote academics in Indian classical dances in its pristine purity. Performing Arts (Dance) was brought on par with every other stream of education. My vision has been and will always be to bring about the traditional sanctity of Guru-Shishya Parampara (teacher taught tradition) to every stratum of the society and especially young minds transmitting the rich Indian culture from generations to generations unto perpetuity. I am proud to say that, today, Nalanda is the torchbearer decorated with Indian heritage, glowing with the light of educational degrees by our highly reputed Mumbai University.
