Ardhanaree (half male, half female) is the concept of Shiva-Shakti sharing the same physical form. It symbolizes the basic principle of creation that includes both male and female energies. Vidushi Megha P. Rao brings forth the many different ways in which this duality is experienced in our lives. Be it the metaphysical relationship between the male and female energies (Ardhanareeshwara krithi), or the relationship between a master and his disciple (Nandhi alarippu), or the duality and oneness of a couple (Varnam), or the relationship between parents and their children (Ganesha Pancharatnam and Sindhu Bhairavi thillana).
