Confessions about... err... dancing!

Its an embarrassing thing I have picked up, and I have to confess it. Have you heard that song from race.. "khwab deke jhoote moothe!?"... well... ahem! I have been craving to dance like mad on that song!!!
*hides his face in between the laptop screen and keyboard.*
aS:lijhs ;che;f;fbsfsd fn;eir ;;a k'sjf' f'sdfdnf df.dv m/sdv (thats what my ears, head and cheek could type)

I am not the dancing type. In fact I have managed to convince myself that I hate dancing, while I actually don't. I never acknowledge it outside, and you my friends, better keep your mouth shut!
I ride the bike and this number blares in my ears at full volume on repeat. I put it there. I have been listening to it continuously since over a day now. I ride slowly at 25-30kmph on my thunderbird and my shoulders move with the beat... my fingers tap, and my head sways back and forth in rhythmic jerks. If you notice, the song has some very very cool 'rhythmic jerks' where all music stops for a second, theres silence, and then it starts again!!... I move with that!... sometimes like a robot... I feel uncontrollably musical and if I stepped on a dance floor I feel I'd look nothing less than a drunk moron!
The line "I am craving for your body now" rocks so much that it makes my entire body emerge out of itself, my arms swinging and swirling in precise body hugging motions, hugging thin air instead, pulling in some empty atmosphere along, the feet moving in smooth uncomplicated motions on an imaginary dance floor, and the throttle hits a sudden HIGH. I come back to the normal 30kmph speed as the song regains its regular rhythm and settles into the cool beat...!
I take the extended road to home and circle twice on it so that I can listen and dance to the song again!...
I feel like picking a random girl and rushing to Elevate (the disc) and wait till this cheap fuckin song plays. I could use the time to get drunk. And when the song plays, I could BURRRRNNNN the dance floor with my oh so natural dance moves. They are real!, completely inspired by the music and nothing else! And I wonder that something this real and this natural must be looking good!!!... but I don't dare... I don't dance.

I have half heartedly stepped on the dance floor many times and midway through a song I get conscious of myself and I forget what to do. I look like I am seeking a partner but I already have one and I am usually totally out of sync with the partner!!
I have had some really terrible times on the dance floor and I have convinced myself that I hate dancing, while the fact is that I just MIGHT love it! :|...but i don't know what happens to me when i am out there.

We had our first fight because she wanted me to pull her to the dance floor while i was strolling around with a drink... i DO NOT GO THERE!!... THAT IS NOT MY FORTE!! ask me for simpler things like a debate on Quantum Physics or irrelevance of the M String Theory, or Sexism and Gender inequality in Aristotle's political lectures!! ask me to unearth the rarest of music and movies for you, or teach you how to grab multiple youtube videos and enhance your basic digicam movie on a free movie editor so you can brag about it to your friends, i'll solve all those complicated computer issues for which the only feasible way left for you is to bang the keyborad (already having exhausted the option of rectifying the problem by kissing the keyboard), i'll help you with a jazzy presentation, complete your thesis in 2 hours flat, write you beautiful letters, help you clean the room, teach you table tennis, hug you at night and wait for you for err.. ever!... but.. hell no lady, DO NOT ask me to dance!

I have moved a leg and shaken more than a hip, including those that were not mine. And I know I have the rhythm... I have been appreciated for my dancing skills although that came as a surprise to me!!... but I just can't dance with HER...ANY FUCKIN HER!... I want to... I really do. And I know that if I get another chance ...i WONT grab it. Taking a girl to the floor and dancing is worse than standing naked for a republic day parade and being captured live on DD1.

I wish I was a natural dancer.

ok sweety here's a little something for you:

A dance is a performance. It needs an audience. Audience is important. It means an applause and applause, my friend, is the purest form of appreciation. So dance to an audience.
Not to an audience made of prejudiced minds, who have fixed ideas about what the term dance encompasses. Dance to an audience as free as yourself.
The next time it rains, listen to the tapping of the raindrops on the roof or your window pane and your foot will tap the rhythm all of its own. Listen to the swishes of the wind and as you swirl you'll make a swish of your own. There is music all around you, if you choose to hear.
And it stops raining. It is your cue to stop. take your bow. The rustling of those leaves.. doesnt it sound like an applause?

Beauty and the BEast said...

after you read that.. dont wait for the rains... just be yourself, all by yourself.. and go footloose!! The partner will come along...

Nayantara said...

Hah! So much for cheap thrills! =P
I'll never forgive myself for admitting this, 'dil dance maare' is my latest hear-it-a-gazillion-times-and-still-you-want-more song! =P
Funny read! =)

Crimson Feet said...

lol... and just when i was thinking "ok! grt.. now at least i don't have to do it till the rains!"... there you go :)

you have described it all so beautifully!!... i love it.. and did i mention before that i really love the way you write?! :) (but the moronic sexist that i am, while reading your words, all i was thinking was "this is sooo girlish!!" ) :)
i guess the social stereotypes are to be blamed for the world missing out on a great dancer like me!


thanks for your words beauty!

Crimson Feet said...

@nayantara ...

dil dance maare?! uh... whats that?!..some violent reality show?
*hopes and prays that no one can see through the pretended ignorance*

thats a funny bloody good number!!

Beauty and the BEast said...

well admit it.. its why sexist morons like you, still have irreversible crushes on the very grirly girls!!

Crimson Feet said...

true!... "irreversible crushes"... but a crush is all that it ever is! :)
...i am quiet on my way to being a non-sexist moron i guess!

Beauty and the BEast said...

In that event.. then on your path you are bound to discover love(yeah yeah yeah girls are incurable romantics too!! :p)
All the best on your journey towards becoming a non-sexist

Antigone said...
