Romance of ball room dancing has vanished: Big B
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan says the romance and the effect of ball room dancing seen during his time has vanished now. The 69-year-old actor rues the fact that the decorum and chivalry attached to the particular dance form is nowhere to be seen these days.
"The romance and the effect of the touch and feel of ball room dancing has vanished. There was a certain decorum in it. The getting up and asking the lady for the dance, the position of statured elegance as you stretched your hands to gently allow the lady to rest hers on yours.
"The firm yet gentle guidance that one conducted by the other hand on her waist, moving and controlling her composure as it were. "Those piercing looks as you held her and talked of the weather and everything else under the sun, as you avoided stamping her elegant dress by your out of rhythm feet, her hand gently resting on your shoulder a picture of support to the woman in your arms. A gesture of care and protection !! All gone now !!," Bachchan wrote on his blog. PTI
