I was fat-shamed and discourage while I was in school. This one time, I remember wanting to participate in a dance for the annual day at my school. However, I wasn’t selected for the auditions because I was fat!
There was a fire of anger and passion inside me because I hadn’t been allowed to dance. It shattered my confidence until one day in college. I was the cultural secretary and during a dance competition, I had two options – either to grab this opportunity and showcase my talent or let the fire inside me burn.
I chose to go for the former and showcased my dance, my hobby and the one thing I believed I was born for! And so, I went on to that stage with the fire raging inside me and performed on Sridevi’s ‘Hawa Hawai.’ I won the first prize that day and understood that dance has no body type. You just need to dance with your heart and soul and you can conquer all the discouraging waves!
Since then, I didn’t look back and I am even called the Garba Queen of Bengaluru for my excellent Garba skills.
The warmth and friendliness that I provide to my clients are well appreciated. Additionally, the results they see in their dancing skills helped me gain popularity. While the Hoolahoop is my speciality, I also provide an overall dance development which includes learning the art of aerial dancing.

I am someone who believes in honesty and trust, I trust people easily and I think most of the times this habit of mine turns into bane.
This is a story of how a matrimonial website service turned into a nightmare for me, already traumatized by the two relationships I’ve had. It’s a story for every woman who lives her life on the principles of honesty and trust.
And when she enters the bedroom, she sees her husband's towel lying on the bed, his underwear thrown about in their bathroom. She rolls her eyes, sighs and picks it up to put in the laundry bag.
Vasudha, age 28 – is an excellent dancer, writer, podcaster and a mandala artist. She is talented young woman, a go getter and wouldn’t bat an eyelid if she had to try anything new. She would go head on with it. Everyone knew Vasudha as this cheerful and pretty young lady.
Except when marriage changed everything she knew. Since she was always outdoors, whether for office or for travelling for her dance shows, Vasudha didn’t know how to cook well.
Going by her in-laws definition of cooking – she had to know how to cook any dishes they mentioned. Till then Vasudha didn’t know that learning to cook was similar to getting an educational qualification. As soon as she entered the household after her engagement, nobody was interested what she excelled at, everybody wanted to know – what dishes she knew how to cook.
