Nayika Bheda in Kathak deals with various types of heroines with respect to their mental setup and apparent behaviour. Women are ever unpredictable. A close study of their behaviour right from an early age can provide a clue to dealing with them. Various female characters in Natya, i.e. Drama, revolve around her temperament, and attitude towards life as a whole. Drama attempts to portray true picture of women hitherto called Nayika.
Kathak dance is rich in this respect. It presents various facets of Nayika through a number of Kavittas, Thumaris and the like. However, contrary to general notion, Kathak leads the viewer to higher and sacred levels of Sringara Rasa.
