    Default Hello from India.. :)

    Hello everyone.. I am 22 years old and from India. I wish to become a belly dancer I have never danced before.. but i was pretty good at imitating bollywood actresses (esp. Madhuri Dixit in the song 'choli ke peeche', if anyone knows what i am talking about.. ) in my childhood. Have lost that talent though. But i wish to regain it alongwith some flexibility

    - The Dancer -

    Once there came to the court of the prince of Birkasha a dancer with her musicians. And she was admitted to the court, and she danced before the prince to the music of the lute and the flute and the zither.

    She danced the dance of flames, and the dance of swords and spears; she danced the dance of stars and the dance of space. And then she danced the dance of flowers in the wind.

    After this she stood before the throne of the prince and bowed her body before him. And the prince bade her to come nearer, and he said unto her, "Beautiful woman, daughter of grace and delight, whence comes your art? And how is it that you command all the elements in your rhythms and your rhymes?"

    And the dancer bowed again before the prince, and she answered, "mighty and gracious Majesty, I know not the answer to your questionings. Only this I know - the philosopher's soul dwells in his head, the poet's soul is in his heart, the singer's soul lingers about his throat, but the soul of the dancer abides in all her body."
    ~~ Kahlil Gibran

    Dance is like glitter, it not only colours your life, it makes you sparkle, you find it everywhere and in everything and it's near impossible to get rid of. (unknown)
