Dandiya Night

I have lots of backlog items for my blog. Let me burn them one by one in chronological order. I was there to palace grounds in Bangalore on Tuesday. But not for Red Eyed Peas, but for the Dandiya night that was happening near by! I was not intended to be there, but still. I was sitting in my silent office experimenting my LAMP setup with guidance of Dams. Within few min, calls came in, my Groupwise messenger popped up. I was in the truck (Rohit's Safari) planning and picking people along. The place was so colorful with all those boys and girls dressed up in their traditional dress with sticks in their hand.

We formed concentric circles each moving on one direction, and danced for almost an hour. After which we shifted to free style of dancing, which was tough for me. :) Though many was elegantly doing it. This was my first time for a Dandiya night and it was good. There were people from all forms of the society, all ages. They danced & had fun.

Even more interesting part was in stake for me. I had a chance to taste, "kata mitta" or "ice ka gola". It was heavenly, but only thing next day you have a soar throat. No problem yaar!

Reduce your weight so that you too can dance well.

Thanks dear weight reduction is duly noted. But it doesn't have anything to do with dancing.
