Farmer leader Ram Shakal, classical dancer Sonal Mansingh among four nominated to Rajya Sabha


NEW DELHI: President Ram Nath Kovind on Saturday nominated four noted personalities to the Rajya Sabha – the Upper House of Parliament.

Among those who have been nominated to the Upper House of Parliament include farmer leader Ram Shakal, author and columnist Rakesh Sinha, sculptor Raghunath Mohapatra and classical dancer Sonal Mansingh.

Sonal Mansingh is a prominent Indian classical dancer who specializes in Bharatanatyam and Odissi. 

Since classical dancing is all she has done throughout her life, her proficiency and interest towards other classical dance forms don’t come across as a surprise to many. 

Over the years, this veteran dancer has practised many dance forms including Manipuri dance and Kuchipudi. 

Besides being a dancer, Sonal Mansingh is a well-known choreographer, teacher, orator and a social activist.
