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

Lightness of being

Life is full of challenges
Along the way
For each and every being
In their own unique ways…

Am reminded  of the saying…
It’s never about the weight
But the way you carry it.

Lightness of being
Is knowing how to steer
Through the hurdles
In effortless grace.

Beautiful to witness

The ways of nature

Sometimes maneuvering

At times adjusting.

But mostly thriving.

No matter the odds.

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?

On Self care

Your body mind and spirit
When in harmony
Makes life and living easy…

How you see yourself
What you feed yourself
The way you treat yourself
The way you think
Life becomes it.

Be kind with yourself as much with others
Practice self care and compassion
Self care isn’t selfish

Exercise consistently
Think well
Stay strong
Eat healthy
Practice Hygiene
Make friends
Nurture connections.
Sleep well
Take care to relax
Enjoy the journey
Live life lovingly !

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.

Blending in…

Blending in
If you visit a new place as a tourist
Would you prefer to blend in
Such that you are almost  invisible…
Or would you be someone
Who would  prefer  to be noticed,
For your differences
And draw attention of others

Being able to blend in can often be a blessing in disguise.
As you look like you have been there and are aware of their ways of life.
You don’t stick out like a sore thumb.
Or behave as if you are out of place.
You tend to draw less attention  perhaps, but there in is your safety in new locales.
You are adaptable and accepting of  the new culture.
For some  it’s really  easy
For some  it’s truly difficult
For they are by nature noticeable
Whether they like it or not!

What is your take on this…
Have you ever tried to blend in or stand out from the crowd

How has your experiences of  traveling been so far  ? Do share.

On Silence

Silence reveals the truths in time
Silence speaks volumes  without  a word
Silence is the recovery  period between two breaths
Silence dwells in every moment waiting for acknowledgement.
Silence ensures the moments of  discernment when emotions rule.
Silence hears the unspoken  words and feels the unexpressed thoughts.
Silence hones the wisdom within
Respect the freedom of silence as much as the freedom for expression.

On Silence

Silence dwells in the spaces between the steps to access whenever.
 Silence leads and the path appears.
Trust the lessons learned in silence.

On Changes

Life presents new paths at every turn
Every now has new learnings.
The trick is to be present in this moment
To understand the evolving perspectives
To be one, with the changes that manifests
Be present. Be adaptable. Be receptive!

On walking

I am very fond of walking, I even have a virtual group of walkers that I walk with for motivation everyday. We contribute our steps to a charitable cause. But more on that some other time. Suffice to say walking is one of my favorite activity, for it is truly destressing.

Sharing this information that came my way on social media this morning…

IMPORTANCE OF WALKING.

Both the legs together have 50% of the nerves of the human body, 50% of the blood vessels and 50% of the blood is flowing through them.

▪️ It is the largest circulatory network that connects the body.
So Walk daily.

▪️Only when the feet are healthy then the convention current of blood flows , smoothly, so people who have strong leg muscles will definitely have a strong heart. Walk.

▪️Aging starts from the feet upwards

▪️As a person gets older, the accuracy & speed of transmission of instructions between the brain and the legs decreases, unlike when a person is young.
Please Walk

▪️In addition, the so-called Bone Fertilizer Calcium will sooner or later be lost with the passage of time, making the elderly more prone to bone fractures. WALK.

▪️Bone fractures in the elderly can easily trigger a series of complications, especially fatal diseases such as brain thrombosis.

Walk daily without fail

▪️ Exercising the legs, is never too late, even after the age of 60 years.

▪️Although our feet/legs will gradually age with time, exercising our feet/ legs is a life-long task.
Walk 10,000 steps

▪️Only by regular strengthening the legs, one can prevent or reduce further aging. Walk 365 days

▪️ Please walk for at least 30-40 minutes daily to ensure that your legs receive sufficient exercise and to ensure that your leg muscles remain healthy.

We care. We share

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.

Wisdom in humility

The soul knows the truths…
Yet the spirit is untamed.
To understand the wisdom.
It is important  to create space
To allow learning to take place.


Humility is dormant
When ego is dominant.
Humility is patience in waiting
Invoking wisdom in humility

On Humility

Humility is a conscious practice in awareness.
Until it becomes  a way of life.
In knowing  that there is always more
Than what the eyes  can see
Or the spirit can do


The soul knows
To reach beyond knowing
It is important  to acknowledge the space
To allow learning to take place
Humility  is dormant
When ego is dominant.
Humility is patience in waiting
A practice of  humility
In thoughts  words  & deeds,
In listening to understand,
In letting go in faith and fortitude,
In making way for gratitude
In being hopeful in trust
In moderation and measure
Can unlock the inner potential
For humility is full of possibilities.

Conscious circles

This post is stemming from reflections to my post by a reader on LinkedIn. I simply choose to delve a bit with the insightful thoughts.

And these verses birthed along the way.


The wall of the mind
Is  in each of us to forge through
In valuing the space between
Two thoughts two steps or two notes.
In choosing harmony of  synchrony 
In conscious awareness
In discerning thoughts
In response than reaction
In connecting the dots
In realizing the grace of unity.

In sensing the strength
Of the circle of conscious connections.

There comes a time

The river of time is ever flowing

Where are you in this now?

Are you adrift for a reason or flowing along in purpose?

Are you sensing there is more

For you to do before you arrive

Where you want to go…

Are you feeling you are rushed

Carried through without a say

Or are you fighting alone

And wishing for some support and strength

Know wherever you are in this journey

You are meant to be and do

All that you deeply intend

For the river courses through

And finds its way to the sea…

Trust time to deliver all I’m good time

Trust yourself along the way

For you are not only in the flow

You are the flow
