A Dance to glory, my true story! ๐Ÿ‘ฐ

Opera Mini dance contest winner

[dropcap]T[/dropcap]was a chilling February night, I heard the cricket whistling in my garden and wanted to dance on those looney tunes. But, my feet didnโ€™t want a restraint as I wanted to dance my sweat out on that mundane evening. Suddenly, my ears started quivering with the patriotic Bhangda playing loudly in my neighborhood and I danced like never before!

โ€œ[highlight]You’ve gottaย dance likeย there’sย nobody watching[/highlight]โ€ฆโ€โ€” William W. Purkey. The proverb itself invigorates your senses and elevates your spirits. Much motivated by the very principle, I believe in dancing my heart out! And here I share the golden opportunity that I received a while back to manifest my moves and take the world in my stride.

And I Dance my heart out…

The official social platforms of Opera Mini browser conducted a contest on the occasion of completing their 50 million users with grand prizes up for grabs. They had asked the participants to shoot a dance video on the โ€˜Range De Basantiโ€™ title track from the Bollywood movie RDB. Despite the fact that Iโ€™m not a professional dancer and just shake legs for the sake of my passion, I stepped up and tried to give my best. I could feel the music reigning in my veins, twirled without complains and entered the competition with a determination to win.

I was and believe still am an amateur artist but my dedication lifted me up with flying colors. Hereโ€™s sharing with you all my dear readers my joy of winning an iPhone 6 as the first prize of the #share2celebrate contest, courtesy to Opera Mini. And today, I flaunt the gratification not as an ownerโ€™s pride but as a symbol of my optimum devotion that made me emerge victorious.

Hereโ€™s the winnerโ€™s announcement: http://blogs.opera.com/india/2015/03/the-wait-is-over-here-comes-the-share2celebrate-winners-announcement/
