Black and White Magic

I have spent my evening listening and watching a few beautiful old Tamil songs. I have a soft corner for the language (as I have blurted out a zillion times) and I love old songs. PBS is my favorite. 

Today, I watched "Kannum Kannum Kalanthu" quite a few times and marveled at the grace and beauty of the two women dancing. Not a step out of beat and not a wasted move. So many years later ( I think it is almost 60 years now), one can still watch the song and be spellbound - that is a testament to the timelessness of some forms of art.

Didn't know that the dialogue "sabaaash, sariyana poati" is from this one. Excellent song. Apart from the synchronization, the movements are pretty fast.. good one. Are you trained in classical music or dance?

Both though I'm more a singer than a dancer. Haven't really practiced in years
