(Camera: INDIRA GUERRERO / RAJAT GUPTA).SHOT LIST: B-ROLL OF THE DIRECTOR OF BALLET IMPERIAL FERNANDO, FERNANDO AGUILERA AND DANCER KAMAL SINGH'S FATHER, KARNAIL SINGH.SOUND BITES: BALLET DANCER KAMAL SINGH (IN ENGLISH) AND KARNAIL SINGH, FATHER OF KAMAL (IN HINDI)TRANSLATIONS:(1)Because kids do their own thing these days and elders in the family should also support the interests of their children. It will help the children to grow in life. We also thought that if he learns this, it will be beneficial for all of us. We didn't have any knowledge about this but then we should keep in mind kids' interests and support them in today's times.(2)At first we didn ´t understand what (dance) he was doing but now when we see any of his videos, we really enjoy them. We didn ´t know anything about it. We here in India have Bhangra, keharwa, jhoomar etc but now that we see it, we feel happy and surprised at the flexibility and body movements. It ´s not that easy.
