International Dance Day

So according to Wiki/Alicia - today is International Dance Day! :) The videos below are a tribute to the styles that I've loved and learnt - hip-hop, salsa, merengue, bachata, kathak, bollywood, belly-dance.

Here's a classical Kathak / Bollywood song which is beautiful in it's fusion of the old and new. We're actually reproducing this for Kathak Ensemble's performance in June at the Alvin Ailey Dance Theater. Very excited about this!! :)

Thanks to Alicia for pointing out this video. Looks like my man can dance... ;-) Go (The) Edge!!

And y'all must have seen this one! :)

हिंदी में पहला पोस्ट

हिंदी में ये मेरा पहला पोस्ट है। शुक्रिया राजेश का कि उसने मुझे ये फीचर दिखाया।
वाह वाह :) बहुत मज़ा आ राहा है हिंदी में लिख कर।


I spent this past weekend in Yosemite national park - camping, hiking and being one with nature (excuse the cliche!). It was breathtaking! The camping was super fun - the hiking was super exciting - the experience was mindblowing!! Here are some pictures for you to see what I saw :-)

Cloud covered Yosemite Valley. El Capitan on the left, Bridal Veil Fall and Cathedral rock on the right. Somewhere down the middle is Half Dome and Sentinal Rock...blocked by clouds.

Breathtaking Yosemite valley

View of the Upper Yosemite Falls from the road. I took this shot with negative exposure and I really like how it turned out :)

Aahhhh - once we setup our camp site by the river - Sri and I took a breather and this was captured perfectly by Mads.

This is life....chilling at our camp site...

The next morning.....

Good morning Yosemite! :)

I know I know...a whole month between posts....not good/fair!! I cant believe it myself. It's been a whirlwhind month too. London-Bath-Stonehenge-Windsor. Then 2 weeks of quality time with friends who were visiting (day trips to Philly and Brooklyn). Topped with a few weeks of something crazy good. And a very interesting trip to Chicago last weekend. Life's been hectic man! I get a 3 day break before heading off to a camping adventure in Cali. Just thought I'd write in before that. Also to ensure my loyal readers that I am alive :-)
Here are some pics from London meanwhile....
