Beijing, June 26

The India-China frictions took a backseat for a while here as a large number of Chinese flocked to a scintillating show of Indian classical dance performances to pay emotional tribute to Zhang Jun, China’s legendary dancer of Bharatanatyam, kathak and Odissi.

Over 300 Chinese fans of Zhang thronged the AIIB auditorium to watch sterling performances from young Chinese children as well as highly talented professionals who devoted their lives practising and performing Indian classical dance forms in this country.
