Writing the last post brought back lots of memories from school and made me feel nostalgic about all the ridiculous fights, the not-so-ridiculous fights, the lunch breaks, the teacher bashing, the teacher admiration, the crushes, the hate clubs, the school events etc. Yet one memory that has stayed with me over these years is that of one dance, one unforgettable dance ( ya , I still remember the steps !!) that we performed on uncountable number of times at incomprehensible places.
My partners in crime were my best friends Trisha and Deepika and God only knows how many times we have laughed about it. It all started in 6th standard when we girls were crazy about dancing. For a particular celebration we composed a dance on the song ‘I love my India’ from the movie Pardes and blatantly copied steps from all over tinseltown. Not strangely enough , everyone from our teachers to the Princy liked it a lot and turned it into a huge affair with costumes etc etc. The dance was a hit and we could not stop from walking with our head held high in the corridor. Then we were told to perform the same dance again at another event. After that we performed at a church, in a jail, at a hospital, about half a dozen times in the school as well. This process spanned 3 years and we passed on our legacy in the form of a dance which wasn’t that great to start off with in the first place. I have not heard that song in the past 3 years and today for some strange reason I felt like I wanted to.
I have been to my school a few times since I finished but even today everyone remembers us by that one dance and in a way it makes me really happy because to be remembered even after 6 years is a huge honor. I am dying to re-unite with my friends and perform the dance of our lives one more time.
