While at that time people came together to help the 80-year-old veteran, on August 27 External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj took it upon herself to help the legendary dancer.

Swaraj who was made aware of Balgopal’s situation via a tweet not only assured people that she will look into the matter…

 

…but within 24 hours asked Delhi Mayors to contact her.



 


She then went on to talk with Mrs. Balgopal herself and assured her that from now on the government will help her out.

 


Balgopal had once made India proud with her contributions to the cultural landscape of the country and was hailed as India’s most celebrated dancer in Kathak, Kathakali and Bharatanatyam dance forms.
