I've turned down many interviews because I haven't really been dancing. The last proper performance I had was right after I got married in 2010. So I feel that I shouldn't be talking so much because I have nothing to show for it.
But of late, I've been doing a little dancing in my basement, while the kids are asleep, I've started going for yoga again and am slowly trying to incorporate dance back into my life. It is difficult but it isn't impossible.
The kids are slightly more manageable and dance seems to be calling me back. It's funny how the universe works. It has been very disheartening whenever people come up to you and ask if you're still dancing and you can only shake your head and say no. But as I always say, there is a right time for everything and I think the time is now.
I recently had a wonderful chat with Global Rasika editor, Sonali Mishra, about Odissi, the Indian Classical Dance style that I do. Here is the screenshot of the interview...if you'd like to read the enitre write-up please click here.
