Group: Taaza Ram and Group
Surtaram, 35 is a family man with 2 daughter and 2 sons. He lives in a village named Daangri. He has been his inspiration and motivation. Taazaram introduced him to pod dancing and taught him the art. It’s been 15 years since he’s been performing the thali dance. He’s emotionally involved with the artform, as per him he does it for the mental peace and serenity. Dancing is a physical activity which requires lot of strength and stamina and Padh performances go on for hours. It’s a tiring process but the dedication and passion allows them to dance for hours. Most of the shows performed by him are local and within the Barmer city and nearby regions. He has joined the group recently and wishes to perform with the same group in the coming years. He’s more inclined towards performing Jagrans which go for straight 15 days and he does it out of sheer passion and dedication. Performing outside Rajasthan has always been a dream for him. He wants people to be aware of this sacred artform and appreciate it the way he does.
