Meetkalakar – Where performing artists meet art lovers

About founders


Since childhood, Richa had been fond of learning and enjoying performing arts, especially music and dance. She got basic training in classical vocal and Bharatnatyam, but couldnot pursue it while she studied to become a foreign language expert. But even while working as a Japanese teacher and translator, she attended as many performances and concerts as her hectic schedule permitted.

Rajashree’s tryst with performing arts also began in childhood, when she performed in some plays and tele-films. She learned Bharatnatyam in an early age and performed her Arangetram when she was 12. She gave up training in dance and music to become a software professional. Working in an early stage start-up, she experienced the pains and joys of growing a company from close.

Long time friends and later family members, Richa Rajadhyax and Rajashree Rajadhyax founded Meetkalakar to return to their love of their childhood – performing arts. In Meetkalakar, the clarity of their roles vanishes when they make an occasional cup of tea together. At other times, Rajashree is the creator of the web-portal and all other applications. Richa is the builder of member community and a natural networker.

Why we do what we do

Having been in touch with the performing artists for many years, we’ve realized that the power of information and communication technology has not yet helped artists to make their mark in the world.

India has a rich tradition of performing arts and the talent that breeds in the cities, towns and villages of India is simply awesome. Singers and musicians, dancers, storytellers, magicians, ventriloquists, puppet artists and many more… the list is endless.

We realized that it is possible for internet to help these artists to grow big by reaching a larger audience. Today, people learn about the artists only through newspapers and word of mouth. These mediums are not enough for the millions of art lovers who are looking for entertainment options worldwide. More and more people are looking for entertaining programs that they can host during celebrations. These entertaining programs add value to the celebrations and make them more memorable. Entertainment programs are becoming an integral part of celebrations whether corporate, family or public.

We want Meetkalakar to become the bridge that will connect the artists and art lovers. We want it to contribute in its own way to the transformation of the performing arts field into a buzzing industry. We want to offer more and more facilities to the artists and group managers to create their brand on the web and reach art lovers worldwide. We also wish to bring novel entertainment options to the people, to make their celebrations more joyous, memorable and meaningful.

Why should you choose us?

The forte of team Meetkalakar is their knowledge of the performing arts domain and their ability to apply technology solutions to the problems faced by the performing arts industry. This team has been involved in developing solutions dedicated to the domain of performing arts.

We understand how difficult it is for the performers to keep their profiles updated as the number of shows goes on increasing. Sharing profile and media files is limited by geographical constraints. Networking is the growing need and is normally done using social networking sites, but they are so many in numbers and updating each is a Herculean task.

You will find Meetkalakar useful in creating your presence on the internet. This can be done using Meetkalakar based websites which are very economical and allow easy updates using Meetkalakar username and password. Subscribe to MeetkalakarConnect, update your profile on Meetkalakar and see your profiles on popular social networks getting automatically updated.
