The Birth of Snake Dance – the hidden history

Disclaimer:This post is purely based on the writers imagination.This is a work of fiction.

Once upon a time in blogpur,an incident occurred which was scripted in history.This led to the emergence of a new dance form.It was the time when the humans and the beasts were amongst the best buddies.It was the era of friendship and where cultural civilization was too far .The time period encountered various events which is devoid to today’s generation.This hasn’t been mentioned in history .
In blogpur, humans and the snake community lived together in harmony.Snakes never hissed and humans never danced.This ancient historic event took place ages ago during the reign of Prince Arjuna,the great ruler of the Choudary kingdom.
Prince Arjuna had a special liking for dance and hunting.Dancing and Hunting are not directly related to each other .He was the only person who was skilled with the art of ‘Nrutya’.He was modest and humble.He was benevolent.His ministry comprised of highly talented ministers like Bahadur Sunil,Vaidya Riya,Intelligent Richa and many more.Snakes were friendly and intelligent unlike humans.Saapo,the president of the Snake community was malicious and was against the humans .He didn’t want the humans to mingle with the snakes.
“Prince Arjuna,I won’t let you rule our dynasty,” Saapo,the snake screamed in front of the snake community members.
“I’m planning an attack on the humans ,”he added.
“But, great , humans are supposed to be snakes’ best friends, aren’t they?,” Junior Saapo said.
“I don’t give a damn about it, my target is Prince Arjuna,” Saapo was furious.

Meanwhile Prince Arjuna of the Royal Choudary family was getting ready for his dance classes.He bowed down in front of his mother to seek her blessings.
“Ammo,me want to develop unity amongst the snake and the humans,” he said to his mother.
“Lord Shiva,bless me,” he prayed to god.

Saapo overheard all this.“Unity between snake and humans,my foot,” he said.
He soon thought for a while and churned out a reason from his wicked mind.
“I will see you in Panchayat ,Prince,” he gave a wicked smile.

The next day Panchayat was called and all biggies of the blog world including Chronic writer,Solitary writer,Busy writer,Pink Orchid and Yem bee Aye were called.
“May I know the reason for the panchayat,”Prince Arjuna asked Saapo.
“I don’t support your selfish attitude,” Saapo replied.
“What are you talking ,Saapo? make sense,” the prince replied.

“I don’t advocate this idea of yours,” Saapo,the snake replied.
“Abhey Langoor ke aulad ,” the prince got annoyed.
“Why don’t you take our snakes with you and teach them the dance ,” Saapo said.
“We want justice,” Saapo added.

Prince Arjuna didn’t have any answer for this question of Saapo.
The Panchayati Samiti soon arranged a meeting.Chronic writer,Solitary writer,Busy writer,Pink Orchid and Yem bee Aye attended the meeting.
“Well ,what is the appropriate solution guys?,” Chronic writer said.
“We should ask Arjuna to teach the Snakes,” Pink Orchid replied.
“Naa,wait ,We should have a contest between Arjuna and Saapo,a dance contest,”Solitary Writer said.
“I second Solitary writer,we should have some sort of dance contest guys,” Yem bee yae smiled.
“But Saapo said snakes don’t know dance,” Chronic writer said.
“He is a liar Chrony,I’ve seen Saapo doing rain dance many times,” Busy writer said to her team.
“So,there will be a contest between both the parties ,hmm,interesting guys,”Chronic writer giggled.
“Who will be our judge?,”Chronic writer added.
“Lets call Farah Khan and Saroj Khan,” Busy writer winked.
“Naa,lets get some guys from our field,call our techie “Saif”,” Solitary writer said with a smile.
Saif,the techie for the community was called.He was a scientist and his inventions were famous.It is said that few of his inventions were modified by Sir Isaac Newton as at that era there were no provision of Copyright and Patents.

Saif was made to get in few bloggers from the 21st century with the help of his time machine. The samitee decided to call Ste,Sandeep Balan,Priyanka and Bharghav.
They even called blog fame Leo and Aarthi to host the contest.
Both Prince Arjuna and Saapo agreed to the accord and contest dates were announced.

A week later the contest started. People from “Simply me” ,”Conjuring Kreativity”,”Pragmatic Utopia”,” Illusions”,”More Orangee”,”Chemerical thoughts”,” Where words are thoughts” and many had come to witness this unique event.
The dance floor was arranged.
“Guys ,its a unique battle between the snakes and the human community,” hosts Leo and Aarthi announced.
“We have Sandeep Balan,Ste,Priyanka and Bharghav Saika as our judges for todays contest,” Aarthi said.
“It’s an important event guys,if humans win,then snakes will lose their ability to stand erect and speech.If snakes win,then humans will lose their ability to speak and think,” Leo said.

Prince Arjun and Saapo looked at each other with anger.
“There will be 2 rounds.Fast songs will be played in the first round and Slow songs will be played in the second round.Each judge will give you 25 points and the game will be decided by the scores out of 200 after end of round 2,” Leo and Aarthi said.

“Lets start the show,” the judges said in unison.
Prince Arjuna came to dance. He twined his body in all possible directions. He danced for 5 minutes.

“Aila,man Arjuna dancing hip hop,” Sandeep Balan said to the other judges.
The judges were highly impressed with Arjuna’s performance.

“Arjuna,something was missing daa,I am still finding it out, so I give you 21 out of 25,”Priyanka said.
“24 for you da ,no comments simply amazing,” Ste gave him a standing ovation.
“22 for you,as Pri said some elements were missing,” Sandeep Balan said.
“14 for you ,no expressions,no entertainment ,no excitement,” Bharghav said to the prince.

The hosts next called Saapo ,the snake.
The snake was dancing pretty aggresively.He was performing continous movements.
“God,the snake is doing rock and roll,” Bhargav grinned.
“23 for you Saapo,you rock,” Priyanka said.
“24 for you,superb expressions and aggresions Saapo,” Ste said.
“25 for the cute Saapo,god bless you,” Sandeep Balan said.
“25 for you.Everything was perfect.Had a perfect feast,” Bharghav said.

“So at the end of the first round Prince Arjuna is 81 and Saapo is 97,” the anchors said and everyone cheered for Saapo.

It seemed the human race was about to lose the contest.It would be a humiliating defeat.Everyone from the human community encouraged and cheered for their dance representative Prince Arjun.

The second round started and Prince Arjuna came to dance.
He was better than the previous round.He performed some dance.
“24 for you ,perfect fete for us,” Priyanka said.
“24 ,you were dancing well this time,” Ste said.
“25,I’m impressed ,” Sandeep Balan said.
“25,was a delight for us,I will write a review about this dance of yours,” Bhargav gave him a standing ovation.

Saapo was over confident and he slipped while dancing.This reflected in his marks.
“10,Sorry,” Priyanka refused to speak a word.
“11,didn’t expect this,” Ste said.
“10,disappointed,” Sandeep said with a straight face.
“10,” Bhargav said.

“So total after round 2 is different.Prince Arjuna gets 179 and Saapo gets 138,” the hosts smiled.
Prince Arjuna laughed and screamed.Saapo was clearly disappointed.His face exhibited his frown.The snakes lost their ability to sense and stand erect.Prince Arjuna rolled on the floor and gigled.
“Snake dance ,Snake dance!,” The judges were stunned.
“Thats a perfect snake dance,”They said.

“And thats how snake dance came into existence,” Arjun Choudary, the great great grandson of Prince Arjuna said to his other blogger friends.
Arjun Choudary was an expert snake dancer and he used to teach Sandeep Malan sir in his acting school.

“Wow!,so you guys created history ,eh!,” the blogger friends said in unison.
“Yes,”Arjun said to his friends with pride.
