The Ankle is considered one of the Upāngas, or minor limbs according to the Sangīta Ratnākara.
The movements of the ankle are important in pure dance and in emotive contexts.
Please refer to the Shloka below for pronunciation. Please note that the separate movements of the head when put together in a Shloka form 'Sandhis', or compound words in the Sanskrit language. Words like 'ca', 'thatha', mean "and", "also". The separate words for each movement are also given below the shloka.
