Padma Bhushan awardee V P Dhananjayan on why he is a Sanatani and not a Hindu

Hindu is a meaningless word that was used by others to keep us divided, says Padma Bhushan awardee V P Dhananjayan in this in-depth interview. One of the top-notch exponents of Bharatanatyam, he explains why he does not use the names Varnam and Thillana in his margams. A must watch!
