Installed by the King of Kathak, Pandit Lachchu Maharaj, the ceremony
also commemorated the maestro's 97th birth anniversary. So touched was
our Rekha by the Maharaj's six-year-old Great-great-granddaughter presiding
over the grand affair with such earnest dignity, that the actress, in a
spontaneous gesture, handed her a trophy and a Rs. 51,000 cash-prize
to the tiny tot herself! From the Renaissance Woman it was a feat of feet!
