Last tango in Hyderabad…

December 18, 2008

Blog Guy, I’m a man who LOVES ballroom dancing. I’m taking a trip to India, and I wondered where I might enjoy an elegant evening over there?

There are some places, but judging from pictures I’ve seen they do things very differently. You may not like it.

Really? How so?

It looks like women ask the men to dance, and they don’t seem to be too subtle.

Yikes! Looks kind of aggressive, but I can handle it. My favorite dance move is the dip. SO romantic! Do they do those?

Uh, yeah, but as you can see below, the woman dips the man, typically with an iron-grip choke-hold on his throat.

Then how does the woman bring her partner back to a standing position?

Did you see the photo? Once your spine snaps, does it really matter?

Be a hero. Join the Oddly Enough blog network!

I fail to see how this can be interesting. After all, what is it with this that is so different from the way men in certain areas court women? This, I believe, is just another sign of the equality of women and men, really!

Interesting Indian Tango moves! I hate to be the partner of these Indian ladies, though.
