Vrukshanjali because it's Earth day! .
'Vruksha' stands for a tree in Sanskrit. It's one of my favorite dance compositions of recent times. It's an ode to a tree (any tree.. plants in general) for letting us survive, thrive and destroy them and still not give up on us as a species! I have a lot of exciting Earth day stuff to share but I chose this picture since it encompasses all of what I wanted to share. I'm going to bookmark and share more Earth day updates as throwback posts because this planet is so damn worth it and needs much more attention and care! .
One new (resolution) thing for this year is to go green as much as possible. The amount of environmental damage that we contribute to, is seriously disturbing and upsetting me these days. Fingers crossed, I'm coming up with lots of plans and ideas to make the change from within before I move on with shout outs and brainstorm sessions. And what's a plan without getting dance involved in it? This one was shot in the gorgeous Brihadeeshwara Temple in Tanjore. This place is a paradise to those who have a desperate inclination towards art. I'm saying this so broadly because it's truly a heaven for dancers, photographers, dance photographers, painters, sculptors, archeologists, musicians, and I can keep going on and on because the history of this place and the heritage is massive(I could write hoards of blog posts elaborating this! I hope to!) UNESCO should be proud to have such a treasure bookmarked under its sleeve. Coming to why did I choose this place? With 100% ban on plastic covers, containers, plates, cups and spoons, the big temple is setting the standard very high to the testimony of time. Inspiration at various levels starting from art to living and the art of living 😊
