മഴയിൽ കുതിർന്നു കിടക്കുന്ന ഈ മൈതാനവും…അവിടെ കളിച്ചു വളർന്ന കുട്ടിക്കാലവും എത്ര പേര് ഓർക്കുന്നു… പന്ത് കളിച്ചു, ചേറിൽ കുളിച്ചു വീട്ടിലേക്കു മടങ്ങിയിരുന്നു ഒരു ബാല്യം… ഓര്മയുണ്ടെങ്കിൽ പങ്കു വയ്ക്കൂ
എന്റെ ഓർമയിൽ വരുന്ന പേരുകൾ….

Thiruvathirakali is a traditional dance performed by women in Kerala, in order to attain everlasting marital bliss, on the Thiruvathira day in the Malayalam month of Dhanu (December- January).
Today, Thiruvathirakali has become a popular dance form for all seasons.
As innovation is key for the success of any event, a group of men from the ANORA association (Ananthapuram Non Residents Association) based in Abu Dhabi practised and perfected it to perform on the day they celebrated at the India Social and Cultural Centre main hall.
This form of dance is a celebration of marital fidelity and the female energy, for this is what brought Kamadeva (the god of love) back to life after he was reduced to ashes by the ire of Lord Siva.
The sinuous movements executed by a group of dancers around a nilavilakku, embody ‘lasya’ or the amorous charm and grace of the feminine. The dance follows a circular, twirling and roating pattern accompanied by clapping of the hands and singing.
As the men performed, the women keenly encouraged them from the backstage watching each step eagerly.
Well, they did excellently well, considering the fact that it was for the first time some of them taking the centre stage!.
