A picture of gaiety and grace
Dressed and aglow are these graceful dancers
Twirling to the tunes of the festive spirit
Sounds of the striking of sticks
Harmony in the synchrony
Rustling skirts, clinking jewellry
To the beats of the Indian drums and the lilting melody
Raising the spirits with fire in the eyes
A spring in their steps yet grace in moves
In these dancing hearts flowing in circles
Of old and young gathering alike as one.
Marking the nine days of Navratri
With some spirited dancing every night
And some austere fasting in the day
A festive season celebrated in fervor to mark…
The power of good over evil and the spirit of victory.
The beautiful colours of a festive India show up in all its vividity.

The above picture of these beautiful dancers dressed in colourful costumes speaks much of the festive spirit in India during Navaratri.
Today is celebrated as VijayaDashmi or Dussera the tenth day of festivities marking the triumphant victory of goodness. The beginings of all things auspicious is the mood that prevails in the Indian psyche today.
To great starts and great times of prosperity ahead..Keep dancing lovingly to life!
Happy Vijayadashami to all here.🌞
