Weekly Photo Challenge: Resolved

Dance, Photography, Weekly Photo Challenge

Trust Sara to come up with a topic that is already hovering in your mind…..Resolutions!!

New Year has always been more synonymous with “Resolutions” than with anything else as far as I can remember. Although majority of those never see the daylight beyond a couple of weeks, there springs one or two which do get through the year with grit,determination and a lot of pushing 😛

Well, this year I’ve decided to get better at my two passions – Dancing & Photography. Either I spoke real loud or much earlier than others could coz there comes a dance shooting assignment within a week of ushering the new year. What more can I ask for?

Guru-Shishya: Darshana Jhaveri and Sohini Ray

Guru-Shishya : Darshana Jhaveri and Sohini Ray …sharing a light moment!!

It is very rare to get a Guru-Shishya (Teacher-student in Hindi) jodi as closely knit and dedicated as Darshana Ma’am and her disciple Sohini Ray. Infact, I consider it a blessing to have so closely interacted with someone as magnificient as Darshanaji and to watch Sohini perform with all her grace,finesse and sharpness is a rarity.

It may across to many people that Manipuri dance is a relatively easy and a very simple dance because of subtlety and softness that is portrayed, but trust me it is one of the most difficult dances to learn and yet not so popular as the regular Bharatnayam, Kathak or Odissi. An hour long workshop had us questioning our stamina and balance 😛

I have almost a hundred pictures that were simply stunning, but alas cannot post them all. But the sheer joy of shooting  two awesome ladies whose basic personality exudes warmth,humility and sincerity is something I cannot explain in a mere post.

Happy New Year to you all 😀
