Mumbai: Sudha Chandran is the first name that pops up in the minds of people when we think of a dancing inspiration. Currently hosting Dangal TV’s Crime Alert, Sudha Chandran shares her journey and love for dance on the occasion of WorldDanceDay.
Talking about her journey, Sudha says, “My dad was working with Mr. Duraiswamy whose daughter Sudha Duraiswamy was a famous Bharatanatyam dancer. That’s when he had decided that if he ever has a girl child, he will name her Sudha and make her a Bharatanatyam dancer. And well, the universe heard him. My mother also always dreamt of becoming a dancer but it wasn’t possible for her so she saw that dream in me.
So, ever since I was 3, I was admitted into a dance school. And I believe, parents think the best for their children, so I never questioned their decision. After I faced the major accident, I realized the importance of dance in my life. I pushed myself and worked really hard and started dancing again in spite of the doctors saying it won’t be possible. Every time I would give up, I would think of my parents and would stand on my feet all over again. I really don’t think this would have been possible if it weren’t for my parents.”
When asked what dance means to her, she says, “Dance is a celebration of life. When I dance, I create a bubble with no one around me. It is just my dance and me. I think it is a very special time I spend with myself. And once I enter the bubble, I attain maximum happiness and pleasure and it feels like I am connecting to some unknown power that transports me to a world where I cherish every moment.”
Sudha Chandran is hands down an inspiration for all of us!
