New York times WWW site, viewed Sept. 25, 2017 (in obituary published Sept. 22: Ritha Devi; b. Rita Mukherjee, Dec. 6, 1924, Assam; her family later moved to Baroda; as her performing career blossomed, a mentor advised her to adopt a stage name before embarking on an international tour; her first name, Rita, sounded too European, he told her, so she added an "h" and made it Ritha; Devi was her grandmother's maiden name; d. Sept. 12, Pune, aged 92; performer and teacher who presented Indian classical dance to American audiences with poetic beauty; specialized in Odissi, a form of dance that originated about 2,000 years ago in the ancient temples of Orissa (now Odisha); lived in New York for 35 years)
