Dance With Chirag!

Last year, we all had a chat with this wonderfully talented and unique personality called Chirag
Chirag Aggarwal
Aggarwal who is a dancer, a dance trainer, choreographer, a zumba instructor, a singer and a pianist!
Phew! So many talents in one person! 

This year, I give you all another chance to get to know a bit more about him.

So I asked this semi-finalist of the Dance Premier League (Sony TV) a few questions and he shot back all the answers in a jiffy. Here they go!

Me: As an artist, did you face any struggle?
Chirag: Not really. I guess things worked out pretty well for me since the beginning.

Me: What/Who is your motivation when it comes to dancing?
Chirag: Anything motivates me because I love dancing!
Chirag Aggarwal 

Me: So you always wanted to pursue a career in dance?
Chirag. Surprisingly, no. It's since the last 8 years that I am into dancing. It was my mother who felt I could dance so she enrolled me in a dance class. They recognized my talent there and then within a week I was promoted to an advance class, within a month performing in shows and teaching the people who were earlier supposed to be ahead of me! So much grace!

Me: Any specific diet/ workout you follow as a dancer?
Chirag: I try to follow a balanced meal and eat food before 10 pm. Everyday workout is essential and especially it's best to workout in the mornings.
I also do my spiritual practices and Yoga regularly, as an Art Of Living volunteer, follower and believer.

Chirag Aggarwal
Me: What about your singing and piano playing?
Chirag: That I have been pursuing since my childhood. I always wanted to sing and play piano in front of people and see? Today I am doing the same!

Me: Along with talent, what do you think is necessary as an artist?
Chirag: Good communication skills are important. With regards to talent, I feel any talent which anyone has is never for oneself. Talent is always for others, never for your own self. As an artist, I perform for others or teach others. Whatever talent one possesses whether it is singing, dancing, speaking, acting, writing or any other talent, it is always for others!

Me: Can you tell me what is your biggest strength as an artist?
Chirag: (Pauses to think) Well, I think my commitment towards my work is the biggest strength I have. I do my best to pursue what I want to the best of my ability.

Me: Any upcoming projects you would like to share?
Chirag: Well I have launched my own YouTube Channel "DanceWithChirag" https://www.youtube.com/user/dancewithchirag Check my Video to know about me and also my website  for all the latest updates and information. www.dancewithchirag.com

Me: Just for your fans-
Your favourite singer? Chirag: Too many, can't  name one
Your favourite colour? Chirag: White, Green, Yellow and Orange
Your favourite city? Chirag: Amritsar, Bangalore, Mumbai
Your favourite cuisine? Chirag: I am basically a total foodie! Love good food of all sorts. If I have to name a cuisine it would be South Indian and Punjabi. 


WHAT THEY SAY-

ASHISH AGGARWAL
Ashish Aggarwal- Chirag's biggest strength is his ability to keep learning! Even though he knows so much as a dancer and dance trainer, he never fails to keep learning and keeps updating himself! He is eager to learn as much as he is eager to teach!

I recently realized how enthusiastic he always is. He never gets bored of teaching the same thing to millions out there. Each and every class of his has the same enthusiasm and is full of energy and is unique in itself! He never gets bogged down by anything and that is surely his strength!

PRACHI NAGUL 
Prachi Nagul- I had attended Chirag's workshop sometime back. Really enjoyed it a lot and learnt a lot about dancing from him. He is full of energy. It's just awesome to dance with him!

ADITI JOG
Aditi Jog: Chirag's workshop is too good. The way he conducts his workshops, I liked it. I love dancing a lot and always wanted to learn from Chirag. He is just too good and so are his workshops! Glad I got a chance to learn from him!

Hope you all enjoyed this interview with Chirag and the others who spoke about him!

Read his previous interview where he has shared some other aspects about himself- http://www.manasiwrites.com/2014/08/a-chat-with-chirag.html

Dream. Imagine. Be Crazy. Be You.

Au revoir!

Prema's Journey...

Hey everybody! Today we have a very special person with us.

Meet Prema Malhotra.  Prema lives in the United States of America along with her family. She has two brothers.
She is just like everyone of us. A slight difference is- Prema was adopted when she was a child.
Prema has willingly agreed to open up to us & share bits of her life.
Let me tell you, after Prema came to know that she was adopted, her thirst to search for her original parents started. She travelled from USA to India, in search of her roots. She came to know that she was relinquished by her birth mother two days after her birth.
The reason was that her natural mother was abandoned and left alone by her natural father. Later on she was adopted by her current father & mother.  Prema then started to feel that she really should meet her birth mother.
The struggle Prema went through to search for her birth mother is something one cannot explain. Did she then, meet her natural mother??? She has done extensive resea…

Me: Have you always wanted to be an actor? What made you decide that you want to be an actor?
Gaurav: When I was a kid, I was fascinated by a lot of professions. One day I would want to be a bus
conductor the other day a 'pepsi-cola' seller, as I grew up I wanted to be a pilot so that I could fly a plane . Then I felt like joining the army once. I realised that if I want to be so many people at once, I should be an actor! An actor can be whoever he wants and that's…

4 simple ways to get out of the Comfort Zone.

Hello everyone!
So it's the first blog post of 2018! It's already been almost two months into the year and I hope the year is going good for all.


  I would like to bring to you 4 very simple ways to get out of your comfort zone and expand your horizons.

What is the comfort zone?
A comfort zone is a zone for each one of us where we feel safe or at ease, where we use only tried and tested methods which can yield only the same type of result.

Why get out of it?
Getting out of the zone, means essentially adding more value to your life, growth in terms of personal and professional life. It basically means expanding your horizons, facing your fears and doing something you have not done before, to make your life more meaningful than it is now.

In fact, writing a blog post on something like this, is me getting out my comfort zone as well, because it's different from what I usually write.

Here I am sharing with you four effortless yet significant ways to change the way you perceive …
