Dancing! I am brimming from the excitement of Dancing in a Flash Mob!!!  First time, when I was told there was going to be a Flash Mob in the office, I was a little bit apprehensive of joining in. But then, I remembered a line I read from a book "No change, No gain". So I decided to take a chance and joined in. Though I learnt classical dance in school days, I stopped all dancing related activities after school. So after four years, I was dancing and this experience definitely reminded me how much I loved to dance.

And what fun we had!!! I danced some steps I would never have if not for this flash mob. We had a very good dance master who handled the herculean task of making us all scarecrows dance. There were 20 odd people in the flash mob and we had all kind of weird movements and steps tested during the practice. We even tried to passionately recommended the famous bulb dance ragging step to be included. In the end, we did a variation of it. Our dance master did complete the herculean task. By the final rehearsal, everyone involved had found the dancer within them. 

The Flash Mob in itself was a huge success. In the rush and excitement, all I remember is the dancing. All self consciousness lost in the crowd. It was one exhilarating experience!!! 

So, here are three cheers to the Flash Mob! Hip, Hip, Hurray!!! \m/

Happy Teachers Day!!!

You will never know your true potential if not for your Teacher!
Facebook  has turned out to be a great source of inspiration these days. I found the above photo shared on one of my friend's timeline and something moved me to write this post. So here I am, yet again, hoping this time I would follow up regularly.

Teachers. Well, what can I say about them? They play the most instrumental role in everyone's life. I am sure all of us have that special teacher who inspired you to do things. Things you did not think you were capable of. Things you would not have attempted and succeeded if not for the trust the teacher put in. In my school days, I used to work hard just for the smile the teacher would bestow on me when she gave me the paper.

Well, then college happened. Though I had more teachers in four years than I had in entire twelve years of school life, my attitude did not remain the same. I guess, it happens almost with everyone. The teachers in school and college are never seen with the same eyes. May be, I grew up and changed or may be, the teaching at school and college level was quite different. But whatever may the reason be, the reverence I had for teachers a.k.a professors was inversely proportional to the the time I spent in college. But even here, I found one beacon. The sole teacher for whom I have utmost reverence. He was my first project guide, my mentor and a well wisher throughout college. I have not heeded to his advise many a time and learnt the hard way that he was always right. Yet, he was always patient and guided me through my college days.

To all the teachers who are responsible for where I am today and what I will become tomorrow, Happy Teacher's Day!!! And a very big thank you :)

P.S.: I know everyone has their own special teacher. Feel free to share about them in your comments below :)
