Savita was always interested in classic dance. She used to watch dance programs on the television. She used to attend every dance performance in the neighborhood. But when she tried to practice, the steps would not come right, the mudras would turn wrong and the expressions would not match. Every time she tried, she ended up in getting more disappointed.
But Savita did not give up. She practiced whenever she found time. She got a good teacher to guide her. She also prayed hard to get it right. Her parents stood by her. They encouraged her.
When her dance program was listed for the TV competition day, she became nervous. Savita felt he would not be able to make it. Although she had been practicing for quite some time, she had never given any performance so far. She wanted her name to be deleted. But her friends stopped her from doing so.
Savita finally decided to make a try. She began to practice very hard. She took care of her steps. She tried to perfect her mudras. She paid attention to her expression. Still as the TV competition day approached, she found herself nervous.
On the live show day, Savita went to studio, accompanied by her parents. She had her make-up and waited for her turn. Finally when her name was called, she entered the stage and took the breaking posture. The laser shoe went up. The instruments played. The song began. She began to dance. She was nervous but she did not fail. She forgot herself and danced. The audience sat, amazed by her performance.
When the dance was over, the audience broke out into a log clap. Savita teacher came to the make-up room and praised her. She was given a special prize for her performance. Her parents embraced her. Her father remarked, `it was your determination that helped you succeed,’
If we detrained to succeed, nothing can stop us. This quality is a key to success. A person who is determined moves ahead to achieve his aim in spite of all difficulties. Only such a person can taste success in life.
