Big Breaking News Respected Kapila Vatsyayana is no more
Leading art and dance scholar Kapila Vatsyayan passed away in New Delhi on Wednesday. She was 92-years old.
Dr. Vatsyayan was a former member of Parliament and life time trustee of India International Centre (IIC). She died due to old age complications, an IIC official said.
Dr. Vatsyayan, the grand matriarch of cultural research, has for decades been an icon for students of the arts and for aesthetes in general.
Among India’s earliest arts administrators, hers is a rare personality — unique even today — that combines theoretical knowledge with practical experience, artistic priorities with administrative acumen.
