Question: In which of the following styles of dance the story/theme is always taken from Mahabharata and Ramayana ?
(1) Odissi
(2) Bharatnatyam
(3) Kuchipudi
(4) Mohiniattam

Answer: (2) Bharatnatyam
Natya is the more dramatic element of Bharatanatyam. Since it is almost entirely made of hand gestures, it has been compared to sign language but with a more stylized effect. The theme of this third part is almost always taken from the Ramayana or the Mahabharata. Besides, Kathakali is one of the oldest theatre forms in the world. It is a group presentation, in which dancers take various roles in performances traditionally based on themes from Hindu mythology, especially the two epics, the Ramayana and the Mahabharata.
