Song and Dance

Was watching a news item about Shakira playing Kaali, where they showcased several of her popular music videos.

Most of the videos had her contorting her body into several complex positions, and I wondered why it was so necessary to dance about so much if you wanted to just sing. OK, I know all about being the complete entertainment package, but my respect for Lata Mangeshkar went up several notches. Here is a highly popular singer who cares only about her singing and nothing else. And what a marvellous job she has done, without making a song and dance about it.

  1. no no!! I’d meant >>

    The theme we have thought of for the November issue: ‘A tribute to childhood’.

    Isn’t this a lovely topic – with loads of things to talk about:

    – childhood memories
    – being a parent. What does it mean to bring up children?
    – kids of today – not just yours but the ones you see around you – your nephews/nieces/neighbourhood kids.
    – The child in us, even after we have grown up. The little things that we crave to do as a child
    – social issues concerning children – child labour, child abuse, etc
    – children films and books.
    As always we welcome you to write stories, poetry and non-fiction and click photographs/present art based on the above theme.

    Do drop in a note to let us know what you would like to write about. The deadline for articles for the November issue is 20 October 2010.

    You can email your work to editors.spark@gmail.com.

    😦 Oh well. It’s too late now.
