Rukmini Vijayakumar Instagram - Day 30: #100daysofinnergrowth As a dancer/ artist things don’t necessarily go as planned. There are a lot of variables on a daily basis. We are at the mercy of organisers, audiences, weather, curators etc etc it is not like a regular job where we show up and do the work. We maybe willing to work, and there maybe nothing to do - Nobody would have invited us to perform. There maybe work, and we may have fallen ill - sprained an ankle, caught a fever…. I used to be very upset when I was taken away from dance when I was younger. I’d be upset with myself, irritable when a planned rehearsal/ show/ training session didn’t happen. But now, I realise this annoyance is pointless. It does nothing really… I’ve begun to be able to accept variables and embrace them with a lot more grace and humility than before. This has offered me a distance from dance that makes me respect it even more. I find myself a lot calmer and am able to take clearer decisions with respect to everything. Smiling because I had to make some decisions and everything is just fine!!

Rukmini Vijayakumar Instagram – Sun in my eyes … wind in my hair and a waterfall right behind…. What more do I need … 😁 

#nature #coorg #waterfall #summerbreak #naturelover Ayatana Resort
Rukmini Vijayakumar Instagram – Yashoda and krishna embody the special relationship between every mother and child… and I can never get tired of dancing many interpretations and versions of this love …. 

Loving this song in all the languages ❤️ sharing another bit… since reels only allows 60 secs I couldn’t share the rest of it earlier and I like this vertical format of watching it … 🤪
