Rukmini Devi Arundale

Data de nascimento: 29. Fevereiro 1904
Data de falecimento: 24. Fevereiro 1986

Rukmini Devi Arundale foi uma indiana teosofista, dançarina e coreógrafa da dança clássica indiana chamada de Bharatanatyam, além de uma ativista dos direitos e bem-estar dos animais.

Ela é considerada a revivalista mais importante da dança clássica indiana de Bharatanatyam pelo seu estilo original sadhir, prevalente entre os dançarinos dos templos, chamados Devadasis. Ela também trabalhou para o restabelecimento das artes e ofícios indianos tradicionais.

Apesar de pertencer a uma casta alta indiana, ela adotou a causa Bharata Natyam, que foi considerada uma arte baixa e vulgar no início dos anos 20. Reconhecendo a beleza e o valor espiritual desta forma de arte, ela não só aprendeu a dança, mas também a apresentou no palco, apesar dos fortes protestos públicos.

Rukmini Devi apareceu na lista da revista India Today das 100 pessoas que moldaram a Índia . Ela foi premiada com o Padma Bhushan em 1956, além do prêmio Sangeet Natak Akademi Fellowship em 1967.
