I was at the Leela Palace on Sunday, cheering for a friend in a dance competition. I was supposed to partner him but it did not happen. (long story) It also turned out that he was participating in the beginners' level meaning I have learnt much more than him. Stop yawning!! I am trying to praise myself without being very obvious. If you have a better way of doing it, kindly share thy wisdom with me .
So, I cheered and hooted and did all that was supposed to be done until they lost in the first round itself. So much for my moral support! As expected, Prasad Bidapa and Keerthi Reddy were present. The two of them along with a dance instructor were the judges. In Bangalore, one would usually chance upon Rani Jeyraj, Vasundhra Das, Vani Ganapathy, Anita Nair, Priscilla Connors besides the above two and even some cricketers cutting ribbons, admiring arts, science, non-sense et al.
Prasad Bidapa smoked holding his cigarette at 45 degrees. After the competition, Keerthi Reddy spoke “kai kai kai so good…kai kai kai so good” I don’t have to tell anything about her voice. (let her acting rest in peace)
I was so glad to see my first room-mate in Bangalore participating in the competition. We were together just for one year after which she left to do her P.G in the North. (It was some 6-7 yrs back)
Then the party began. This time, I did not resort to Sprite but to Red Bull and hence, the energy level was not very high.
Met some seniors too. They have changed the dance institute but are still dancing. I wanted to be like some girls out there who danced so well. You should see them splitting sideways, in front and almost falling flat on the ground without ever losing balance. Seriously thinking of going back to Salsa again.
Watched Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire after work yesterday. I carried a whistle along and acted like one Hairy Ponting fan. After all the fun in the past two days, found it too tough to wake up in the morning. yawn!!
There, I managed to spew out a post. Good bye!!
