Though we push our kids to indulge in various hobbies, as moms our aspirations come last. I mean who has the time with all the work we do. But, 3 years back, I took up learning kathak. There was a lady within the layout where I stay who was offering classes. Though, I am not a good dancer, actually I have two left feet :). I thought, why not! The first time, I came home and showed my hubby the steps I had learnt, he laughed loudly. My movements were so robotic :).
But, I persisted and continued learning for about a year in which time, I even had 3 dance performances. Though they were amateurish, and I am not a great dancer even now, I actually loved learning kathak. More than dance, it was conquering my inhibitions and confidently overcoming my own ghosts. I quit after a year due to lack of time. But who knows, maybe someday, I will resume from where I left off :). And, definitely someday, learning Hindustani Classical music is on my agenda.
Here is the Youtube video of the first performance I gave. I am the one in white, and it is not very clear. Hope you enjoy :)!

Hi! I am a professional Content Writer and co-owner of a Technology startup, Tranquil Software Solutions Pvt. Ltd. I am a Major in Chemistry and MBA in Marketing Management from NMIMS, Mumbai. After having worked in Brand Management, I took a sabbatical when I had my kids. I did dabble in Teaching and Medical Transcription in my quest to balance my work-life after my kids. And finally I stumbled upon writing. Having started this blog in 2008, I ventured into professional content writing. And I continue to grow and work with some amazing people in the field of writing. This blog still continues to be a strong reflection of my thinking, opinions, perceptions and wisdom. I am mother to two bratty boys and a Labrador and loving wife to a wonderful man. I go the extra mile for friends and love a good conversation. Uncomplicated, I tend to open up easily to those close to me. I have lived around the world including the US and Europe. I don't have it all figured out, but I am enjoying the journey that is life!
