Rita Ganguly is an exponent in the Indian classical arts. An accomplished dancer, musician and vocalist, she was honoured with the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award in 2000 and with the Padma Shri in 2003. She is the mother of actress Meghna Kothari. Rita Ganguly was born in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, into a Bengali Brahmin family, the daughter of K. L. Ganguly, a journalist, by his wife Meena Ganguly. K. L. Ganguly was a freedom fighter and member of the Congress party. In 1938, he was selected by Jawaharlal Nehru to become the first editor of the National Herald, a newspaper founded by Nehru. Rita therefore grew up in Lucknow, where the newspaper was based. She started learning Rabindrasangeet at the age of 12 under Gopeshwar Banerjee. She later joined Visva-Bharati University, along with her elder sister, Gita Ghatak but concentrated more on dance and studied the Indian classical dance forms of Kathakali and Manipuri. She did further studies in Kathakali under renowned gurus, Kunchu Kurup and Chandu Pannikar and trained in modern dance at Martha Graham School, New York. She performed at various stages including the Bolshoi Theatre, Russia and joined the National School of Drama (NSD) as a faculty member of dance where she is known to have introduced a new course of Movement and Mime. She taught at NSD for thirty years and during her tenure there, she is known to have contributed in productions and costume designing. She is also credited with efforts in the recreation of the classical theatre and in the construction of Vikrishta Madhyam Auditorium. Under the aegis of NSD, she visited many countries such as Australia, England, Sri Lanka and Israel where she presented performances and held workshops on Indian Classical Theatre.
