Happy birthday, Padmini! I planned my Padmini birthday post more last year, but on this blog these days, almost every day is Padmini’s birthday, or at least she seems to have one every week or two. I’ve been a bit busy, actually (with non-blog-related writing projects), but I had to take a moment out to celebrate Padmini Day anyway. And everyone else should do the same… (Watch a Padmini movie, do some bharatanatyam in your living room…)
P.S. Yes, the subs are somewhat ridiculous. They might add to the amusement, but they might also be too distracting, especially during that great dance by Padmini and Ragini. But you can also turn them off when the video is running – just click the little red box two rows above the arrow on the right.
