El escenario, con sus intrincadas obras de arte & la iluminación adecuada, fue el telón de fondo perfecto para la actuación de la compañía de baile. El público dio una calurosa bienvenida a los bailarines cuando subieron al escenario, & el final de la actuación se encontró con un estruendoso aplauso. Raja & Radha retrataron las emociones humanas con movimientos elegantes & coordinados, que representan el amor, los celos, el miedo, la ira, la alegría, el asco, la sorpresa & la confianza.
