Wahida Zennath Muma – a figure of transitioning culture

It was different summer for her in 2010, glimpse of Stockholm was viewed first time from the window of an airplane. The aircraft touched down the ground safely with her all triumph, dreams, and new vision for her further steps of new dream in Sweden all the away thousands of miles from Bangladesh where the wind of culture was unlike Bangladesh. The dancer, Wahida Zennath Muma, Bangladeshi born, started her dancing career while she was five years of age. It was her mother who was her inspiration to be a dancer and the lure of glittery costumes brought Wahida to dance class in folk & general dances at the age of five in ‘Shishu Academy’, Chittagong, Bangladesh. At the same time she started taking dance lessons on classical dances. This start has taken her to numerous performances and competitions throughout Bangladesh.  Later, she went to India to further her dance studies on ‘Indian Classical Dance’ and ‘Albripu in Bharathanatyan’ from Natya Ramya (The School of Dance), Bangalore, India. Now, she has established herself one of the leading professional dancer in classical, modern, and folk dance forms.

Indiska Restauranger

iDesi har besökt SANJHA CHULLHA en indisk restaurang i Finspång. Vi åkte förbi Finspång och fick syn på denna restaurang. Restaurangens namn representerar den äkta Indiska maten. Efter att ha smakat maten kan vi också tycka det.
Det märks att Indiska restauranger finns inte bara i stor städerna, utan även i andra städer.
I Indien eller Pakistan är det mycket vanligt att man åker med bil eller buss och ser flera Dhabha (Koisk) och stanna för att ta en snabb mål. Idag kan vi säga att även Sverige kan erbjuda en sån resa med flera intervaller och samtidigt nujta av Indiska köket.
Vår resa började tidigt på morgonen och vi åt frukost i Nyköping Restaurant isha sedan fortsatte vi mot Finspång och åt Indisk Lunch i Sanjha Chullha.
På väg hem stannade vi förbi Indra i Nörrköping då var det dags för indisk fika (indisk chai). Väl vid middag var vi framme vid Nyköping i Haweli Khushbo.
