Paarkadal alai mele

I was watching my old dance videos…..yes… I was a bharathnatyam dancer and I loved it. It meant more than how much music meant to me…somehow…due to so many reasons that was faced out of my life…
But the video got me nostalgic and started looking on the internet for some of the songs for which there were dances.
One of my favorites in the dances was the dasavatharam dance…the song for it was paarkadal alai mele. I wanted that song…and yes…internet is my paradise…I got it..

I also found the bharathnatyam dance for this song at http://in.youtube.com/watch?v=z8KkWekEhu0&feature=search_on_watch&search=dasavatharam%20bharathnatyam

the best of all….I found contact details of my dance teacher…she taught me dance 20 years ago…
we were in contact with her about 15 years ago. Now I have got her contact address, phone number and email ID….this is why internet is my paradise:)))

    Hello malathi,
    I am not sure…when it is written in tamil, it is written as paarkadal…
    if you listen to the song at http://www.youtube.com/watch?search=dasavatharam+bharathnatyam&gl=US&feature=search_on_watch&hl=hi&v=z8KkWekEhu0 ….
    I will keep a look out to check once again….

    Thanks for your comments!!

    If you must see another amazing rendition of Dasavatharam, the below link is going to blow your mind with the amazing performance by Temple of Fine Arts, Malaysia.

    (I was actually searching for the lyrics of the song. Thank you very much!)
