I absolutely love Indian dance, I have attended a few Indian dance & music festivals in Liverpool, London, Berkeley and San Francisco. I wish they had more performances here in the San Francisco Bay area, but there are so many more Indian communities in England that that it was a much culturally richer place to be. Anyhow, thank you for following my blog ‘More Talents than time”. It is going to be just a personal collection of everything I am good at. You know, for those days when it is too easy to forget one’s value and skills. Reply ↓ Very interesting face. Reply ↓ WOW! Stunning work Josh!
