As a modern purveyor of Indian dance, Uday Shankar was unparallelled. His prodigiously talented wife, danseuse and choreographer Amala Shnkar, turned 100. Her house, in Calcutta, filled up as family gathered around the grand dame, incl­uding her daughter, actr­ess-dancer Mamata Shankar. A perfect occasion, then, to screen the path-breaking Kalpana (1948), directed/acted by Uday Shankar and also starring Amala.
