Left to right: my mom with Padmini and Lalitha, two of the three Travancore Sisters. They were hugely popular dancers and film stars, and our next-door neighbors in Chennai. My mother had trained as a ballet dancer, and took up Bharatanatyam, getting good enough to do a performance with them. There are more Travancore Sisters pictures on my blog.
