Sasural genda phool

Genda Phool

Captured this shot while shooting an Odissi dance recital by one of the students of Aratrika . Actually this was pre-recital shot and amidst all the chaos of the stage being setup and the green room, I noticed this lone flower lying on the stage in the spotlight. Nothing philosopical about the picture and yet I feel drawn to this shot but at a loss of words.

Ohh by the way, for those of who are wondering why the title of the post…well the only song I could remember when I saw the flower was Sasural genda phool….cannot stop humming now…lol.. :-))

For all you curious music lovers, who have no clue about this son…here’s the link for you

 

P.S : Genda phool = Marigold flower

Ever since I remember, Dance has been an integral part of my life. It is my solace to everything else around me and yet it has kept me tied to the realities of life as well. From being a performer to capturing other artistes through my lens has been an amazing journey. Infact, my experiences behind the lens has added to my experience in front of it.

Here, I have posted a few pics from an elegant and classical dance form of Eastern India – Odissi. These I found in my archives when I was searching for a particular pose and I knew I had to post them. There were hundreds of shots but I clearly knew my favorites….lot more are in pipeline…so keep watching this space 🙂

Dance ….my tryst with Divinity…..

Let the Show begin…!!

Lighting the Diya


Decked up Diya…. Curtains down…..Performers Ready….the Bell rings and the stage is set for the show to Begin…!!!

Clicked this one on my IPhone 6 and was surprised that it turned out good given the lights weren’t so bright.
