Artist's Description

It was shot during a Dandia Dance at our Club at Dhanbad.

It is very simple dance and is performed by a group who move in circles to measure steps, marking time by sticks called dandia.Dandiya are the featured dances of Navratri evenings in Gujarat.

The sticks of the dance represent the sword of Durga. Women normally perform it in a graceful and rhythmic manner in a circle as they rotate around the ‘mandvi’.

The women wear traditional dresses such as colorful embroidered choli, ghagra and bandhani dupattas dazzling with mirror work and heavy jewellery.

It got featured in the First Things Group on 30.7.09
