Poila Boisakh 2008

Natasha’s dance at the Poila Baisakh (New Year) Festival in Atlanta in April, 2008. Bengalis celebrate their New Year around mid April every year.

This was Tasha’s second dance in Atlanta. She and her friends were tutored and the choreography done by Ruchi Lodh. The beautiful pictures during the credits in the beginning and the end were taken by my highly talented photographer friend Samaresh.

Shift happens

I had originally seen this in a presentation made by a gentleman from CNN.

You can see this and many variations of this on youtube. There is a wiki dedicated to this too. http://shifthappens.wikispaces.com

While this presentation was about ramifications on our education system, I think it is great also for us in the technology sector in terms of understanding how fast this whole space is moving.
