KANAVU MEIPADA VENDUM






Everyone of us has an unfulfilled desire inside us, which keeps on burning in our subconscious mind. whenever we read or see something related to it, it suddenly jumps out from our subconscious mind. My dream is to learn bharatnatyam. During my childhood days, we lived in a big house, with a long verandah and it used to be my nadana medai. but my dreams didnt come true, jus bcos i wear glasses. i wore power glasses at the age of 10 and my mom would say, how could u learn dance, when u are wearing glasses? how would u perform with ur glasses. i would not blame my mom, she really didnt mean to discourage me, but she was innocent enough, she did not know that i can replace glasses with contact lens. so,the dream came to an end,but my passion still continues, i would jus imagine myself performing whenever i see someone perform. my cousin and my very best friend is a classical dancer. whenever she performs, i will be there to watch it. i really adore the way the great actress padmini dances,my favorite ones are "kannum kannum kalandu" and "maraindirundhu paarkum marmam enna?".
Even today when i watch these songs, I cannot resist my dancing desire jumping out of my subconscious mind and question me.i hope my passion turns into reality, atleast in my next birth. who knows? let me hope for the best. may be i can still learn. there is no age for learning.

Welcome to the club :) Enakum andha madhiridhan thonum bharatanatyam parkarache ellam..hey, but there is no age for learning, you can still try.That too in TNagar, classes-ka panjam?

ashok said...

better late than never...but wen u start late at something..u need more hard work and dedication...somethings that come easily as a kid wont be as easy wen u r an adult...but if u have real passion - nothings impossible.

ambi said...

even u can avoid contact lens by doing lasic which is more resultive...

If b'natym is ur passion, then u could start without any delay. in Uma pathi st, there is a kali bhari temple. i've seen many kids practising dance in weekends. check out whether u could join.

also Actress banupriya is conducting classes in her aprmnt which is some where in ashok nager (a magzine reported long back)

Ravi said...

Veda, you can still learn Bharathnatyam at this age! But again, you'll have to overcome other obvious glitches like say being part of a young class (the kids might mistake you for the teacher). Again, if you are really passionate, these have no meaning at all :-) Good Luck1!

Dubukku said...

its never late. If dance is your passion then go for it - atleast if you try you will never regret it later. I am doing the same with my childhood passions.

Chakra Sampath said...

hi... thanks for dropping by my blog.

As everyone says, age has no barrier. I see quite a few retired ppl joining computer classes in UK.

Hiren said...

You have said it exactly the way it is. Since you have mentioned it so specifically, maybe you would like to have a look at one of my blogs which talks about converting passion into profession.

neighbour said...

Hmmm... you are right...
Its gift for those who got their passion as profession.

But most of us live a life where is leads too in which we lost our passion for profession..

But some of them live a life where they want to be in which their passion and profession sinks..

I am in the first part of life.. Hope you too.. But even than we can convert some achivable passions into professions..

All the best for a future classical dancer.

Ricky said...

Is there any age restriction to learn bharatnatyam? I know you would have missed the early stage of your life to learn the art, but its not too late.

I guess you could still make it. Wish to see you soon on the stage! Good luck.

I want to learn to dance....in my heart I dance for ever song but when it come to the actual dancing I develop 2 left feet! Here in the US I got the oppurtunity to learn swing dance and went for it!! The experience was exhilirating!! (though I could not go to more than a couple of classes due to work but hope to have more time in the future!)
Btw...my first time here..nice blog!!

Sundar Narayanan said...

veda, i started dancing when i was 22. i was accidentally discovered by a ballroom dance instructor in my school when i went to try dancing at a social. went on to become a competitive ballroom dancer and i made it to the final in the intercontinental dance championship in england 3 1/2 years later !! never too late to start trying anything.. go for it.

of course, it has been 6 years since i stepped on a dance floor.. never know where life takes you..

:)

Delhi_tamilan said...

if I am right, this post is probably the one which had so many comments on to it - 36, (well it will become 37 if you approve my comment!)... seems to be quite popular post.. so did u finally started learning dance?

Srivats said...

I really understand what you mean, i have been through the same thing and I have taken promise to myself that i always act on my desires , its never ever too later - Jus go forit, dont even thoink about what others might say or whether you would do good or bad.

Seriously nothing really matters u dance for the sake of dancing! Your passion and your love for dancing
