Fusion Dance!!!

June 26, 2009

Why do I love India?

Simple, it is the diversity; it is the fusion of so many things, so many cultures and so many art forms.

Indyeah (the famous blogger :mrgreen: ) had asked me to post my dappankoothu/pandi dance video but I will reserve that for a later date.

The below dance that you will see, holds a special place in my heart coz it was the last dance we did in college (a college called CET) in 2005.

The male dancer on the extreme right had high fever that day (103 degrees) and the male dancer, second from right had a major bout of appendicitis that day, but we all danced coz it was our very last performance in collegeΒ even when we had onlyΒ a week to “make” this dance.

Nope, we did not hold anything back that day. Nope, it was not our best performance but I love it coz it signifies the diversity that we have, we Indians have!!!!!!

As usual, this post comes with the warning: πŸ˜€

Please don’t throw eggs at your monitor………

Enjoy (OG is the dancer on extreme left. If I was only that thin now πŸ˜› )!!!

    Hey! Sorry I’m EXSTREMELY late BUT you know how it is.
    Anyway, I’m not going to throw eggs at the monitor. πŸ˜› because you guys are good. πŸ˜€ And hat off to your friends (or shall i say co-dancers) that were sick BUT still proformed. πŸ™‚
    I’ve seen this video before and you’ve had my review. πŸ˜‰
    OG! I’ve got an idea. You want to lose weight. Right? Why don’t you start dancing again in SF? You get your daily exercise and you’ll have fun because you’ll be doing something you love. πŸ™‚ What say??
