a story | laavanya

Rasa, the essence,

denotes an essential mental state where as Bhav,

the state of mind,

is often translated into feeling, emotion or mood.

emotions i felt, things that held me,

i regret skipping opportunities for things i faced,

but guess i had to go through them to be better,

for my dreams to become goals, & aims,

now, all i want is to dance, & make these dance forms -

reach every corner of the world.

like every other performer, i am happiest on the stage,

the world fades away, & it’s just me & my form,

beats matching the beats of my heart, mind

my feet, hands gracefully following the magic

the world watching, or not -

i am at my best when i dance
