“Breathless” Shubhi

Kathak dance performance by Shubhi Arora

Watch her graceful movements,
especially her hand gestures,
she paints the lyrics – with her hands
Watch the way she twirls,
again and again,
she almost sets off a little cyclone.
The bun on her head is ready to take off,
or maybe, it is the bun that is keeping her pinned to the ground.
