05 May Lessons Lockdown 2020 taught me
They say, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade”. I say, “When life gives you happy moments (in the grimmest times of the lockdown), make a happy video.” It all started when my maami called me up and suggested doing a zoom call to just dance and have fun.
We came up with a lot of options for the songs, but this was one that appealed to all of us, maybe because we’re all staunch feminists, or maybe we all loved the beat. But the most probable reason remains that we wanted to dance so badly that we were ready to agree to anything.
Anyways, the zoom call never happened because of collapsing time zones, network issues, but we did come up with individual videos. Dad put them all together and this was the outcome we got. I want to express heartfelt gratitude to my three beautiful sisters: Prarthna di, Shirin and Shaina, you guys are the best friends any girl could wish for, even in a Disney movie.
Thank you to my bhuas, whose unmatched enthusiasm made this possible. I also want to thank my mom for being ever-supportive and for being the best dancer I know of. Thanks also to Garima aunty for her prompt videos. Let’s not forget Rajni maami who initiated all this and danced really well. I hope you guys enjoyed dancing to my tunes just as much as I did. Three cheers for this video and for many more to come.
