My first stage performance

Posted: August 10th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: My Firsts, School | Comments Off on My first stage performance

Technically, I am not somebody expected to have stage fright. My mothers grand parents were kathakali & drama artists and my father’s grand parents were actors too – they could smile & hide their day-long plight on the rock-hard Kamuthi soil (Kamudhi is a place in Tamil Nadu, with dry lands) while tilling their lands or grazing their cattle.

Coming from such a classy ‘performers’ family, I can assure you that I don’t have stage fright. What happened in Delhi Public School, Pre-Nursery in Gurgaon on August 10, 2010 is a totally different story.

See the video before reading further:

In the video you will notice that I am crying even as the whole of my pre-nursery class is singing a patriotic song. Let me assure you that I was as surprised as my teachers & my parents at my performance that day. And then I began to wonder – why did somebody who performed so well during practice sessions, why did somebody who would correct the rest of the kids when they went wrong….why did such a kid start crying the moment the singing began?

And then in struck me – I had wanted to sing this song onstage alone…but my teachers had included all the other students against my wishes. This was not what I wanted. And that’s why I had started crying the moment the song began.

Don’t believe me? Well, I am sticking to my story. My father has taught me…if it’s a lie, stick to it till it becomes the truth.

My favourite place in my house

I have found my favourite place in my house, its a quite little corner inside the TV stand. Whenever my parents are busy watching TV and are not giving any attention to me….this is where I sit.

This way, my parents just can’t ignore me. Pretty soon, they are forced to switch off the TV and play with me.

Guess, innocence still works in this world. Wonder if by the time I am 18, I will be able to work it on my boy friends….

Here is my fav place:
