Divine faith.

Heart connects.

Faith is a sensing

A knowing of a connection

Intangible yet intensely felt

In faith is an understanding

A learning to be patient

An accepting of more

In faith is a dance of possibilities

In faith is a communion with the divine

Where faith is everything is

Dance floor

Any space of Creativity

Be it art, dance or music

Is a free space for the spirit

To breathe free in liberation

Sensing the soul connects

Allowing the flow of expression.

Live and breathe in the art

In life’s moments every day!

As for the dancers…

Stay in touch

With the truth of you

On the dance floor.

Such is truth of life.

So do all that you do

With the best of you

An Alphabetical Tribute

Sharing another from my mother’s writing today… it happens to be one of my favorite pieces from her.

Nataraja The Lord of Dance , represents the never ending cycle of evolution and dissolution.
The Master who has conquered the five elements , dancing to his tunes.
An Alphabetical tribute to the
The Divine Dancer condensing the essence of cosmic energy in his form n action.

Nataraja – The Cosmic Dancer

Absolute and ultimate dance of
‘Being in the Now’, where
Celestial Creation & Destruction
Dance hand in hand in
Energetic, enigmatic endless flow.
Formless blending into The Form.
Gift to Cosmos. Unfathomed
Happiness undermines the
In-depth, concealed caring of
Justice to prevail, in the
Knowing of the Unknown all.
Lasya ( dance of creation) and thandava (dance of destruction) both
Merging in and emerging from
Nataraja,The Cosmic Dancer.
Oneness personified in essence.
Purity and Power as its source.
Quietude emerging in the motion.
Rare culmination of creative
Subtlety of concealed infinity.
‘Thath thwam asi,’ , that’s the Truth.
Unknown, Unsaid and Unseen
Visions of Ultimate Reality.
Worlds far and beyond knowledge
Xceeds the human excellence.
Yearning _’To be with IT ‘ is all one can wish with the
Zeal of unwavering Faith

Hope you dance…

To dance is to know

The feeling of being alive

To this now in your life

Being present with all of you

Listening and moving

To your own beating heart

For the music and rhythm

Is yours to own and sense.

To dance is to let go

Of the spurious and irrelevant

And reclaim the energy

That is yours to own.

And in that owning

You create moments

Worth living for…

Hope you dance!

On Freedom

On Freedom

Freedom is being able to be all of you

But remembering the rights

Of other lives to be all of them

When we understand…

Our Freedom ends where another’s freedom begins.

So then

How free do you feel in this now

How important is freedom to you?

Can you sense your life flowing

Or is there restraints that bound you

Can you express yourself without hesitation?

Can you speak your mind without fear?

Can you write without worrying if the words may reveal your nature?

Can you walk alone without a care where you live?

Can you wear what you want without fear of ridicule?

Can you dance the way your spirit moves you?

In short

Can you flow in harmony with the spirit in you?

If you have answered more yes than no then consider yourself closer to being truly free.

Freedom is not for giving

Freedom is there for taking

Freedom is being you

As you truly are

Freedom is living

Without facades.

Wherever you sense

You are most you.

Now…

How free are you feeling

In this now?

Art of Dance

To dance is to honour your body in every move

To dance is to sense the freedom of the spirit

To dance is to tune in to every moment

To dance is to breathe in the wisdom of the creative spirit.

To Dance…

Saw this post and I was struck by the truth of these words.

In fact what made me post this is that I have carried this exact feeling of being truly alive whenever I have danced.

In fact I had captured it years ago in a set of verses dedicated to dance and the way I feel about it .I had summarized it to this very same concept of being alive.

Am sure if there are other dancers reading this post they would agree,

“To dance is to be alive to this now… “

A passionate perseverance…

You become what you consistently  think about.
Would you agree?


From since I can remember I have been fascinated by movement and dance. With its power and applications in grace and dignity.

I had no plans to become a  dance educator but decades into dance and training  here I am still thinking  and writing  and dancing whenever I can.


Yes, you may have many other professional careers and  experiences in varied fields but the things you are deeply passionate about, you become and becomes you.


Be it any form of art of science  or anything in between yet unnamed…
You draw energy  and purpose  from it…
You feed from the very energy  in reference and reflection.
You transform yourself and your environment with the very same energy within in enthusiasm as you come from heartfelt abundance.

Mastering Thoughts

Thinking is a gift of humanity

Beyond the primal instincts

Thoughts can be a complex maze

Self serving or otherwise

It is necessary to align thoughts

So that they don’t turn chaotic.

Channeling thoughts to align

Towards a higher purpose

Bridges the pathway to peace

So can we truly master our thoughts?
Often considered daunting in itself

For we are swayed by a zillion thoughts,
In every moment we are alive.
But if we begin to understand
That mastering is about integrations
It’s a connection of our senses.
In managing our mind moods & actions.

The simple act of choosing
One thought over the other
Is a choice we have with us.
We are our own masters
We are enslaved by own selves.

Our life is created in these choices
We choose to think and make.

Mastering thoughts is the challenge…

That decides how we choose to feel
Yet if we only let ourselves tap
Into our intuitive intelligence

We will find our inner guide
That is always on our side.

As you dance…

As you dance


Tapping your toes


To your own heartbeats


Life senses your rhythm


And waltzes along with you,

Just another day back in time.

Exactly eight years ago!

With love from Athens Greece … 🙂 At the World Dance Research Congress Greece UNESCO as a representative member from India 🙂
An example of Unity in Diversity…. Approximately 400 conferees from 40 countries of the 5 continents.!

Today in India, so glad to write this, the dance community that represents India internationally has grown from strength to strength … yet ‘Spot me’ if you can … I was the only woman representative from India at that time.

An amalgamation of such an association and the resulting experiences leaves one enriched for a life time. The practice resulting thereof in pursuit of excellence becomes important. In the awareness of the possibilities in dance applications on the human psyche and form, the responsibility of making a positive difference in your purpose is strengthened.

Power to more such immersive and experiential collaborations in the art of dance movements across the world. 🙏
