काली बस नाचना चाहता है – Kali Wants to Dance Hindi

He was featured in a documentary film, won many awards, and became famous in India through dancing. Kali is the founder of Koothambalam, a dance school in Kovalam.

But his path may have taken a different route if he did not strive for what his heart has dreamed of. His friends and family discourage him from dancing with sadly discriminatory attitudes towards boys dancing for a living and his family has no means of sending him to take a formal dance lesson.

But he has the talent and Sarah Chanda saw the burning desire and passion to dance deep within him, he has the makings of a classical dancer and the dedication and drive to overcome the prejudices of his community.

Text and Images from Hindi काली बस नाचना चाहता है

काली को टवी पर पनी का नृय
देखना बत पसंद है। वे एक स
नृयांगना और अभने ह। काली
उह क तरह घुंघ बांध कर
भरतनाम नाचने क कोशश करता है।

तरी धन झुनु धम तक धर कट तक तधगणतोम, तधगणतोम, तधगणतोम।

ऐसे नक़ल करके नाचते नाचते काली इतना अछा नाचने लगता है क उसके अयापक उससे वलय के कायम म नृय करने को कहते ह। कुछ ही समय म, उस छोटे से मछुवारा गाँव म काली भरतनाम नतक के नाम से स हो जाता है।

एक दन, साराह चंदा, जो क चेनई के एक अपताल क संचालका ह, उसे मंच पर नृय करते ए देखती ह।
धत तेयुम तत ता तेइ धत तेयुम तत ता तेइ

कला संथान क मुख, लीला
सेमसन, जो वयं भी भारतनाम क
जानी मानी नृयांगना ह, काली से नृय
करने को कहती ह। काली बस नाचना चाहता है

काली अपनी पट के ऊपर से ही धोती
बांध कर एक फ़मी गीत पर नाचता
है। शक को उसे देखकर लगता है
क उसम नतक बनने के गण ह।
