Kahaani ’19 (first reflection)

Similarly to last year, I have joined Kahaani this year. I joined because I can learn more about the Indian culture, support the cause behind the dance showcase and also have fun learning dance with friends. Although it is difficult to find time to practice the dance consistently, I find it exciting to dance with my friends and ultimately dance at the showcase in several weeks. The dance is quite upbeat, which is contrary to hula dance. Since I have been dancing hula, it is very interesting to try other dances from different cultures.

But ultimately, kahaani is more than dancing and having fun – it is to support Indian women. By recognising the significance of the cause of this experience, I think I will be able to value the opportunity and remind ourselves of the issues that these women face in their communities.
