One thought on “The Dance”

  1. I never danced .
    Ok , maybe in primary school , under the tutelage of strict nuns .

    Burning candles could have set out tulle skirts alight . So we were ultra careful . It was a beautiful dance . Dangerous and spectacular . Never before staged , in a small Jharkhand town . Their own girls , weaving such other worldly magic. It was a superhit . If there was stardom to be attained , there it was . We ruled the hearts and imaginations of an entire small town . What more to crave for ?
