Photos: Danseuse

Always choose a good seat before a dance performance. That was the lesson of the day. When the dancer was performing, I was scrambling for a good vantage point to click pictures. The lens with zooming capability seemed inadequate to capture the best expressions and mid-air leaps she performed. Although I tried many combinations on the camera, this was the only one I liked from many pictures I took.

I neither know the name of the dancer nor the art form she was performing. Yes, I was not attentive when the announcements were made. This picture was taken during Fete de la Cite organized by the residents of Maison de l'Inde. It was a great afternoon with food, music and dance programs. This also happens to be one of the rare occasions in Paris where Indian culture is showcased.

    1. Okay okay. I got carried away. Anyways, that gave you an opportunity to plug in your website. :)

      For all those interested in knowing Indian cultural events in Paris, visit our local "Blondy"'s website. Here is the link. http://www.indorientparis.com/

      It is in French. But it is easy to understand if you look for the schedules. ;)

  9. Aah lovely, Nona!!! I have always found Indian dances more heart-warming in a foreign country than in India:) They look so unique and beautiful in the other culture! They, of course are lovely here too but still...

    1. In a foreign country, you have more time to admire this. I'm pretty sure we don't find time for this in India. Over here, you just look forward to something like this.

  10. Did you even watch the program??? from the looks of it, you were busy setting & unsetting your gamera settings instead of enjoying the performance.
