India is  a country which has a great talent pool….No I am not being biased when I say this. Being in the limelight is not an opportunity many talented Indians are showered with…..But there is no dearth of talent in this country…..A survey says that every human being is born with some or the other kind of talent, its for people to recognize and nurture it. Seldom do we realize the potentials we have and most of the times ignore God gifted talent…..

In a country and culture like ours, where mainstream education and then taking up a job which promises a monthly salary is a must. Any one who tries to break through the cliche  has to make it big or else is a looser and an unfit for the society. Parents will obviously not support fearing the so called relatives and the society at large.

My mom happens to be an exception. She always encouraged me to take up my passion and pursue it while in school as well as after that. She unfortunately wasn’t encouraged by her folks, hence she let her daughters pursue their passion.  She is also an exception because unlike other women watching the melodramatic serials, she would watch Discovery & Animal Planet, news and then talent shows. Dance India Dance happens to be her favorite show as it is a platform for talent from cities, villages & remote parts of India who are not trained dancers but have the talent. I got glued to the television and would watch this programme religiously  every Friday &  Saturday.

Dance India Dance is am amazing programme. It is the brainchild of the man who brought disco to India – Mithun Chakraborty. With the three masters Geeta Kapoor, Remo D’Souza and Terrence Lewis, the show is not only about breath taking performance, competition and fun, but about different styles & genres of dance. It is an amazing show which definitiely breaks the clutter and stands out.

With Dance India Dance season 2 coming closer to its grand finale, I am sure it would leave its audience wanting for more and waiting for season 3…..

    I loved watching DID – the first season. The choreography was unique and it is commendable how different dance steps have been shown every episode. Wonderful platform to showcase talent

    I once saw an episode of this show and the dance routines were very innovative.. I felt that the female choreographer, Geeta got a raw deal from Mithunda. Of the 3 masters, who is the best choreographer according to you?
    Kudos to ur mom for inculcating creativity and arts in your life. Its great to know she has been very modern in her upbringing of her children 🙂 Discovery, NGC and APL are my fav channels too… so I share that taste in television with her 🙂
