Share what you know - GN 05 Jan 2017.JPG

I am just an ordinary expatriate who came to the UAE with lots of hopes and dreams in 1987. Life has evolved and revolved over the years of my stay in the UAE. I am happy to say that I lived most of my life here. The journey has not been easy for me all these years. I am worried about the number of people, close family members who have been affected by cancer. Some have already left this world and some are fighting it out. I want to support all those who are affected by cancer in some way or another.

Also, it’s important to me to promote talent and knowledge through my own initiative for sharing talent or knowledge from within us to others. What is the point of having a skill within you, if you are not willing to share it and pass it on to someone who is willing to propagate it? It is a challenge and many people who are talented hold on to it without passing on the skills to a second or third person. We have to share our skills, talents or knowledge to those around.

ANORA men perfects Thiruvathirakali

Posted on Updated on

thiruvathirakali-anora-men

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!.
