The Essence Of The Art of Dance



The Essence of the 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 being human to value all that you love.

To dance is to breathe in the soulful connects.


To dance is to tune in to every new moment.

To dance is to inspire another to unleash their shackles.

To dance is to meditate with creative intent.

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

Dance of the Sky

Came across my earlier painting capturing the dance of the Northern lights Aura Borealis at night from the seashore and it lead me to pen a few reflections on the dance of the sky…


Dance of the sky

What is it about the Polar lights
That compels me to travel some day
To take a chance and brave the cold?



Aurora Borealis
The dance of lights
Up in the sky.


Ethereal to behold
Waltzing colors
Enchanting vision


Of  fluctuating solar winds
In the magnetosphere
That pull you to witness


The thrilling spectacle.
Of Optical emissions
Stirring magical emotions!

Gift of intuition

Grateful to intuit.
For the answers tumble through you
The path breaks through in the trusting
Until the way becomes you.

A sense of intuition is a gift
We all have it within us
Sometimes it propels you to it gently.
At other times it compels you to conform.


A substantial force in subtlety of being.
It is our spirit guide that moves with us
Follows through in ways we cannot  fathom
In a knowing (in the gut) of wisdom across lifelines beyond lifetimes.

What matters most is our tuning inward To our well of wisdom in the listening.
Thankful for the master guide within.
In deep gratitude  for this gift in the journey of life.

A Connected Life

This year I celebrate my five years of being and serving as a Member of International Dance Council UNESCO

Sharing a note I wrote 5 years ago…

Honoured to be nominated as an official Member of the International Council of Dance UNESCO. It’s the official umbrella organization for all forms of dance in all countries of the world. Its members are the most prominent federations, associations, schools, companies and individuals in over170 countries.

Have to certainly add that back in the 1960’s it was a visiting delegation from UN that had come to India who had got my dear father interested in learning these International Dances and later on teaching these dances as a hobby and now after all these years as his daughter, to have been certified by CID UNESCO I am touched indeed to say the least.

Thank you Dad for sharing with me this Magic of Dance. I am truly grateful that our simple dream of sharing the joy of Dancing by not only training people to dance but also specialising in applications of dance in holistic wellbeing through Dance Concepts, has been nominated to join UNESCO CID.

It surely connects the dots into a beautiful circle.

The prospect of working under the guidance of this phenomenal institution gives one unbelievable new strengths.

Learning to dance is indeed a ‘labour of love’ and I cherish every moment. How privileged we are to share this indescribable ‘magic of dance.’

Hoping to take the art of Dance to empower more and more people to sense and love the beauty of every movement in the moments called Life.

Profound stories


Talk of profundity in brevity.
So much can be said in a few words.
Came across  this very brief but thought provoking read and felt like sharing . Have interspersed them  with a few relevant pictures.



8 micro short stories, with deep meanings!

(1) Those who had coins, enjoyed in the rain. Those who had notes, were busy looking for shelter.

(2) Man and God both met somewhere. Both exclaimed, “My creator.”

(3) He asked, are you a Hindu or Muslim? The response came, “I am hungry”!

(4) The fool didn’t know it was impossible. So he did it.

(5) “Wrong number,” Said a familiar voice.

(6) What if God asks you after you die, “So how was heaven?”

(7) They told me that to make her fall in love I had to make her laugh. But every time she laughs, I am the one who falls in love.”

(8) We don’t make friends anymore…. We Add them nowadays..

Holistic Education

Holistic Education

If you really want to educate your child

Practice empathy and encouragement

Show kindness and appreciation

Speak well of others

Listen well.

Have integrity

Be compassionate

Be humble

Be humane

Be genuine

Be honest

Be responsible

Be respectful

Be grateful

Volunteer for a cause

Live lovingly!

Whatever you do, your children learn

For they have their own mind

To think for themselves.

And they have their own path

To be themselves.

Capturing nature

Nature is a dance of abundance

Colours and textures

Waltzing in vividity

With the arising concotion

Of unique patterns

Interspersed with changes

Of Seasons in a rapturous flow

Spellbinding yet endearing

Cataclysmic yet composed

Arresting hues juxtaposed

In delicate balance of form

Distinguishing the elements

Nature expresses in all shades!

The light of it’s own being.

Savvy

Sharing a few of my captures…

Of precious moments in nature.
