Vijayadasami remains my most favourite day of the year. It stands for 'success on the 10th day' in literal translation. It signifies that success that comes after toiling sweat and blood, and a lot of endurance and patience, and that which teaches you the art of living. Only the one who goes through it, can understand it, in its deepest sense. It's the Indian version of Thanksgiving(literally). But what does it truly represent?
Indian culture is always driven by the big picture. We don't have mother's day, father's day, inspiring idol day and so on. Think about it. Technically, you can never thank enough. Nor can we do it even if we did it all our lives. In essence, it's the day of gratitude.
Take it, everybody! It's all of you that I owe all my thanks and love for who I'm today. I may not live long enough to show all my love for all my dearies. I may not have shown have enough love for everyone I have come across. For several births to come, I may not be able to show my gratitude to my parents, siblings, cousins, relatives, friends, enemies, authors, singers, creators, dancers, foreigners, places, strangers, those that I missed in this list, and every other ounce of inspiration I drink in a day, every second. But this one day of sincere salutations, allows you to represent your deepest gratitude and earnest joy.
The joy called Bharatanatyam :)
The joy of life. The joy of being a human.
To all my gurus from mother dearest to maheshwara ... 🙏
That's Indian culture for you! ☝️ #vijayadasami🙏 #vijayadasami
