Spirit of Mumbaiiiiiiiiii

My My MY MY...this city never fails to amaze me. Such a vibrant and energizing city where it seems there are 2 sunrises perday. People never seem to sleep and trains are never empty. Be it weekend weekday or holiday its alltime crowded. Dusserah celebrations have been going on for the past one week in my apartment. Every night from 8 to 10PM they have dance competitions of various categories. Garba..Special garba..special saada..with masaala..withoutnu lot of varieties. All cute looking gals :) dancing with cute cute steps :)) dressed in cute cute cute costumes :))) It was nice fun. Yesterday being weekend the turnout was pretty good. It was supposed to get over at 10 but the crowd began to pour in only at 10 PM. To say that all hell broke loose after that is an understatement :) Me and my roomies were present as usual in the audience. Suddenly one of my roomie had a rush of blood and he started dancing (sathiyama ithu naan ileengo..sona nambanum) avana paathu micha socha makkalukum sruthi eridichi. They also started dancing..solli vacha mathiri antha timela "Apdi podu " song from gilli was playing. Kekanuma...pasanga seri kuthu. On seeing the wild steps of these guys..one group of dancers in the ring invited them into their group. What happened rest is history :) It was Nach baliye, jodi number one, maanada mayilada everything rolled into one. I was designated the official cameraman for the event. It went on and on till 1 Am. After that we were all so damn tired that we just flopped on the park. The crowd went beserk when the DJ played Tan tanann..the latest Chartbuster from KAMINEY. We couldnt resist the jig and got up again and danced like mad.

The people here are amazing. Such a vibrant and energetic crowd i've never seen anywhere before. They work hard and party harder. And no wonder the dance reality shows in hindi are way better than the ones in tamil. These guys are natural dancers. The way the groove to each beats and the way they all keep up with each other and choreograph their movements is amazing. They dance like pros. After our gang moved in..it all got messed up and each one freaked out :) Traditional steps went out of the window and tamizh kuthu dance took centerstage. Onnu uruthi..entha raasa entha patanam ponalum..namma oor kuthu styleku thani audience iruka thaan seiyuthu :) Overall semma enjoyable experience. Vidia vidia aatam potutu vanthu padutha kai kaalula semma vali. Part parta Pichi poatama mathiri irunthichi :D Everyone was totally drenched in sweat. Elatha vida top news..star cricket vacha England defeating SA to qualify for semis :) Woooohoooo....

P.S: valaichi valaichi foto eduthennu sonieye engada oru snapum kaanumnu kekareengala...enna panrathu..kameravum kooda senthu aatamo aatam potruchi pola..all foto arab mathiri semma shakya aidichi :(
