What is White Matter

White matter is the brain tissue through which messages pass between different areas of grey matter within the nervous system. Using a computer network as an analogy, the grey matter can be thought of as the actual computers themselves, whereas the white matter represents the network cables connecting the computers together.

Band Baaja & Dance....


Can you think of a typical Indian marriage without band, baaja, baarat & dance ? 

There are typical songs and type of dances which are done usually with the lousy bands,trumpet, horse,chariot and people carrying lights..now may be replaced with DJs(better) in recent marriages I'd attended...

You can assume songs here...mostly...

# Yeh desh hai Veer Jawanon ka...I wonder a patriotic song still holds good to trigger Josh-E-Jawani...
# Aaj mere yar ki shaadi hai...can’t do without it :-)
# O Meri Zoharazabin...Favorites for uncle/aunt or even for grandparents :-)
# Mujhse Shaadi Karogi...Any Confusion still...but works for bachelors at the dance:-)
# Mere hathon mein 9-9 chudiyan hain...typical Galz songs...
# Sapne mein milti hai...will explain this dance in detail later...
# Kisi Disco Mein Jayen...Augh...Augh...should I say more...
# Sasural Genda fool actually phool...people will wave palms as horizontal cut , blessing actions, stop the "invisible" traffic and even walk like Egyptian...
# Dholi taaro Dhol Baaje...Perfect for woman of all ages to form a circle and performing garba...and dandiya without sticks..
# Wah wah Ramji...Bachelor guyz will look out for sisters of bride/groom...to dance with them...:-)
# Bole chudiyan..bole kangana...OR Shava Shava...OR Sajan Ji ghar aaye...Guyz with kurta/sherwani and stole (Most Imp - otherwise you are out)...Galz in ghaghara...perfect Karan Johar movies...

But come to dance...its all free form...as hip-hop/break dance/popping/locking may leave some brilliant buddies dancing alone...so dancing with the flow and bollywood dancing is surely on...

Nagin Dance - Usually one guy or more guyz(better) turn into snakes or dragons (without fire)...One guy removes his Tie,Stole,hanky or take even hands in the form of Beeen...suddenly people turn into wild shaking and hissing creatures....usually this dance losts very long until someone starts the next dance form...

Kite Dance - Kai Poche...suddenly people starts flying "invisible" kites with string pulling actions...usually others imitate..the other partner(s) hold charkhi to supply "invisible" string...then it takes form of gruel-some competition of "invisible" kites...2-3 people imitates cutting of string and dropping of kites hilariously....some other guyz run to catch them...and yes dance ends...

Bhangara Dance - Oh Balle Balle, a popular form...but I dont think people do classical bhangra at marriages...One or two hands up and One leg up...yes it just starts contagiously...and made hit by everyone start dancing, pouring in full energy...

Satya Dance - Remember Bhiku Mhatre(Manoj Bajpayee) from Satya - Sapne mein milti hai...people turn into wildest taporis and start intimidating each other...with gruelsome lip-biting actions....
Ringa-Ringa-Roses Dance - All people form a human-chain or circle and start performing ringa-ringa-roses without sitting at the end,ofcourse..then phugadi,garba and dandiya again with "invisible" sticks performed by all galz and aunts alike...Here the excitement is on its peak and people will pull everybody including bridegroom to dance...sometimes against their free-will too...

Old is Gold Dance - Usually Uncle/Aunts will show classic steps of their time...Bhagwan Dada steps, Dilip Kumar - nain lad gai hain steps,Mahmood - Aao Twist Karen steps, Vaheeda Rahman,Vajayantimala steps...and it is sure fun to see those impeccable steps and twists...without it dance will be incomplete...isn't it...

Recently at one marriage, unfortunately there was no provision/permission for band,baaja,baarat and no dance:( However in the room of bridegroom,we had craziest ideas of dancing even if there was no band-baaja-baarat...
  • Dance on cellphone songs while wearing head-phones :-)
  • Silent Dance without music, just actions :-)
What was your experiences...which form you do the most...Any hilarious form I missed out...?
