Twist and Twerk!

Standard

The idiom ‘turn and twist’ is redundant now. Today we see twists and twerks. Every year there are interesting additions made to the vocabulary volumes. If not an addition, then some dormant word gains celebrity popularity. This year the credit of reintroducing ‘Twerk’ goes to Miley Cyrus.

Twerking means to dance in a provocative manner that involves thrusting hip movements. The definition itself is twisty!

This movement or motion or dance move—you may call it as you like—isn’t new to the Bollywood dancing style. Rarely an actor (and a few actresses) may have not strained their hip joints to this move. However, it never gained too much attention as it has this year. What possibly must have gone wrong?

If you observe closely, the answer is simple. What varies is the intensity with which it was performed recently, and of course, the degree of squatting, the tongue bit and the attire. Therefore, all the attention, talks and discussions.

So what’s your move this festive season! If it is twerking, then ensure you have the right audience for your performance and your health supports such vigorous movements, otherwise this year twerks could turn twisty in the New Year!

Wishing All Dear Readers A Very Happy & Prosperous New Year!

Move It! Lose It! Prove It!

Standard

“In the game of mercy when one kid cries out, the other one listens and the pain stops. Don’t you wish it was that easy now? It’s not a game anymore and we’re not kids.  You can cry mercy all you want, but nobody is listening. It’s just you screaming into a void.”

– Meredith Grey, Grey’s Anatomy; S10:E3

How many times do you find yourself screaming into the void? Sometimes more than once in a day and sometimes more than you can count in a week. It happens to all of us. I keep writing and saying Life is Beautiful. It is, but as the adage goes ‘Life is not a bed of roses’. You do get roses, but roses are never without thorns. Some days are good or perfect as we generally call it. And some are plain bad hair days. So much so that you cry mercy—a cry rarely heard, often ignored.

It can be personal or professional, and sometimes both. But then what do you do?

Life does not come with a pause, rewind or forward button. It just goes on, non-stop, till your final breath.

“What if your focus splits? Are you left with nothing at all? Maybe you just need to find a different path. What if you can’t give a hundred percent? Maybe you just need to go back to the beginning and start all over again.

– Meredith Grey, Grey’s Anatomy; S10:E5

Yes, may be you need to go back to the beginning, unwind, and start all over again. As the Fifth Episode of Grey’s Anatomy Season 10 ends, Callie Torres’ attitude and Little Jackie’s beautiful song ‘Lose It’ says it all…

Exercise your right to enjoy life, you don’t need an invitation.

To let loose and be free, no need to RSVP.

Make your way to the party, no need for navigation.

Just fire your smile, exercise your right to have fun.

Go outta your mind, get into the music…

Colour outside the lines, I want you to move it…grove it…show me how you lose it…

Move it…grove it…show me how you lose it…

Move it…grove it…show me how you lose it…

What is the art of letting go, this is your moment, it’s your commencement.

C’mon stand up, all your hands up, being in present.

You can’t occupy two places at the same time; leave the past behind, a simple change of mind.

Fire your smile, if you’re ready, get set for a good time.

Go outta your mind, get into the music…

Colour outside the lines, I want you to move it…grove it…show me how you Lose it…

Move it…grove it…show me how you lose it…
