Diwali,2008 October 30, 2008

Well, this time I atleast tried to come out to my balcony to look at a few of my kind peeping out of theirs’ and many of those who were busy celebrating. I can say that I was the one more worried about them while they were actually enjoying to their fullest.

When I saw someone trying to light a cracker standing too close to it, I was constantly murmuring to myself, “Not so close! Not so close!”. And when someone finds it difficult to light one, I couldn’t stop myself from shouting , “Enough! Now please move away before it blows up”. I saw a car parked infront of our building. It was all fine till I saw a “Bhoo Chakra” moving towards it and it was then when I thought, “Couldn’t the owner park it somewhere else?”. I was wondering if he actually gave a single thought to where his car should be parked.

Then came a call from my bro’s asking me and my sister to visit his place. Though it is just about half-a-km far from ours’, it seemed miles away given that I had to walk amidst all the crackers. My heart was pounding as loud as the crackers; Hands over my ears, eyes tightly shut,opening once in a while just to make sure I wasn’t walking into some “danger zone”. Finally, I somehow managedΒ  to reach his place with the help of my little sister πŸ™‚ .

Guys, this wasn’t me till two years back. There were days when I lighted a 5k wala(ladi) myself πŸ™‚ . But it all ended when a rocket hit my grandpa near his eye 😦 . I am glad he put on his glasses then. Since then I was always scared that someone might get hurt real bad 😦 .

My passion for dance October 19, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — navatha @ 6:36 pm

My inclination towards dance begun the day when my parents din’t allow me to participate in the school annual day dance competitions in my KG. After seeing my friends perform so well, I cried for days for not being able to dance with them 😦 . Since then, till today, dance has charmed me in every way possible and I never let go any opportunity.

At school, I had little scope to showcase my talent. But at IIIT, it was like the beginning of a new era. Starting from Fresher’s Day 2005 to Cultural Night 2008, there were many propitious instances which will remain in the pages of my diary forever. Hope you guys remember those days of our Freshers when we were urged to practise day and night to give our very first performance here. Namrata, Deepti πŸ˜€ , Srp and Srirang on Kajrare.. Harshi and Shikha on Dolare.. Charan πŸ™‚ , Bhargav, Srujan and Prithvi on Gajuvaka and Dus Bahane.. Me, Prashasti, Maruti πŸ˜› , Mathur and Kapil on Kambaqt Ishq.. Though some of these continued dancing, you dont find the rest on stage these days. Hope they would step up once again in this final year πŸ™‚ .

One of my favourite performances was the classical “trio” performance by Harshita, Namrata and Me in the basketball ground on the song “chinnamma chilakamma”. We truly dedicate this performance to our beloved professor Dr.Govindarajulu, who is very fond of classical dance.

Apart from these, I am a rabid follower of Indian Idol and I was always sad and worried because not even a single good dance show was being aired. I wondered if people preferred singing to dancing?? and always ended up saying a “NO”, looking forward to some good dance shows. Then started my all-time favourite “Nach Baliye” making my long-time wish come true. The show can best be described in three phrases : debonair dances, elegant expressions and charismatic coordination. I would never forget the tremendous performance for “Baahon ki Dharmiyan” by Tina and Hussain. And from there this trend continued… “Aaja Mahi Vay”, “Zare Nachke Dikha” are two more of this kind.

So friends, here I tag each one of you to share all of your dance experiences with us πŸ™‚ … Be it any… small or big.

@deepti : Mams, cannot forget your randaka randaka πŸ˜›

@namrata,harshita : Shall we give another try…(not for the felicity song though πŸ˜‰ )

@maruti : last yr any plans of performing in the cultural night? πŸ™‚
