Navtej Johar’s dance tribute to Bhagat Singh

Eulogies to Bhagat Singh are many. In Punjab, the most popular imagination paints him as the groom on his way to marry his beloved. The gallows are romanticised, the ceremonies of marriage are evoked as metaphors, and ‘death’ is imagined as the bride. But Navtej Johar’s ‘Tanashah’ pays a tribute none has offered: it recreates the last few days of the 23-year-old martyr-intellectual’s life in dance — Bharatanatyam.
