Gaiety and Grace




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.🌞
