Dance of Life

She Moved Like A Dancer watercolor and ink by Meera Rao
India Art Journal 2015 

She was a vegetable vendor.  Everyday she sat by the roadside with a few crates of produce. She always dressed in simple though beautiful sarees with matching stylish blouses, bangles,  flowers in her hair, and eyes rimmed with kohl. She also had a ready smile for her customers.  This particular evening she was moving her crates to a storage area near by before calling it a day.  As she lifted and carried her crates she moved like a dancer, light bouncing off the folds of her saree, face and body. I was captivated by the beauty and grace of her movements.    

"I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way 
- things I had no words for. "

Hi, Meera, A lovely work! Yes, our movement has beauty and rhythm. A visual artist depicts it by drawing, a composer captures it with sounds and a writer catches it by words. Best wishes, Sadami
