Kolkata, Mar. 11 (ANI): Former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly participated in a childrens Holi programme on Tuesday, which was organised at his wife Donas dance academy.
Dona, who is an Odissi dancer, runs Diksha Manjuri in Kolkata. Sourav and his daughter Sana made their presence felt, revelling with young dancers and splashing colours.
I came here to see the children dance. I don”t understand dance but children enjoy and that’’s enough for me, admitted the former cricketer.
The highlight of the evening was of course Sana’’s tiny dancing steps.
As for the Holi festival, the stylish left-hander admitted that he was afraid of Holi colours.
My daughter Sana will play Holi but I don”t want to play. It’’s very tough to clean the colours off the body, Ganguly said.
Dona, however, said that she couldnt play Holi with her husband all these years, since he was preoccupied playing at home and abroad.
Earlier we did not play Holi because he was busy playing cricket for India, Dona Ganguly said.
She also presented a ”Raas Leela” performance on the occasion. (ANI)
