Let the Performance Come from the Gut!

I remember my Mom being an amazing Singer & Singing being her only indulgence apart from the daily household work!

I also remember her being very nervous before every performance & her Sir + co-performers giving her confidence before & during performance.
What I distinctly remember is that after every performance, the audience used to be stunned with her melody.

I used to wonder how – when she’s so nervous & I have hardly seen her practice at home, how do people go WOW with her voice.

Its much later that I realised, that performances need to come from the Gut to make an impact! Let it be an honest performance for it to be a great performance!

Also a quick mention for Pooja Sharma aka Draupadi for coming back from Hiatus.. Thank God & Thank You!

1Year of Pooja Sharma as Draupadi in Star Plus Mahabharat

I have been quite a devoted fan of Pooja Sharma as Draupadi from the famed Star Plus Mahabharat including Pandavas, Krishna & many other characters from the tele serial. The tele serial coz it helped me understand myself and situations around me better, my objectives in life better with more clarity and confidence. Pooja Sharma coz she gave me an actress on Indian tele series to appreciate I think in a long time.

She came out as a professional who was confident yet humble in her first job, extremely pleasing to look at plus a lot to learn from – the way she conducts herself & choices of appearances. She came across as a today’s Young educated ambitious girl/lady like many of us and is quite simple, down to earth yet professional about her job.. Plus how brilliant a performer she is about a job which she was doing for the first time and how brilliantly she adapted despite it being a mythological character that today’s people run away from..

She played a character which is well established in people’s hearts and minds with various misconceptions and false stories. Yet she came out a winner by establishing the character as a strong, angry, focussed, righteous, dutiful, devoted to Krishna, loving, caring, smiling… Above all, she played the role with a lot of grace, poise… the effort showed be it in terms of the heavy jewellery, costumes she wore and carried off, the number of hours spent in getting ready for the role…the chaste Sanskrit laden Hindi she had to speak… Plus the range of expressions from Love to Anger, Sadness, Frustration, Pride – AMAZING!

She gave women a strong representation in the tele series and made herself an actress and a character to remember in times forever… I wish & hope that she goes on to do a-lot more great roles ahead and gets all the happiness in the world…
