The Macha Dance

I’ve been having countless useless online arguments lately, triggered by many online Indian cultural upholders. The argument revolved around a video clip which had been making rounds lately, and which I’ve seen like months back. So, I viewed the clip. It features one Indian Macha, dancing in what I will call a Macha dance. It is quite popular among young boys nowadays, and I do not find it offensive at all.
AT ALL.
And suddenly I see people are rushing in to condemn and criticize this guy for dancing in the streets. It seems this is against our culture. How can dancing on the street be against our culture?
What is our culture really?
1. Hundreds of Indian girls are dancing half naked in clubs with guys rubbing their dick behind their ass. Is this our culture then?
2. Thousands of people are invoking fake spirits in their body in the name of God and dancing their way through the streets during Thaipusam each year. Is this our culture then?
3. Hundreds of people dance in front of our so called ‘Hindu’ Gods in any temple festivals, is this our culture then?
4. Thousands of girls are posing with mukka trousers and kangkang pose in Facebook. Is this our culture then?
There is no true rule book for culture. It’s ever evolving.
Dancing in festivals is not WRONG, unless you’re intoxicated. The above Macha who is dancing is not under influence because he is part of the Urumee group, and it’s a rule not to drink when you’re playing Urumee instruments.
When I travelled Europe, in cities like Barcelona, Rome, London and Paris, people literally dance on the streets to make a living. I’m not saying that the guy above was right, but there is no way you can call what he did was wrong. When white guys do it on the street, you throw in money to support them; but when this guys does it, you look with disgust.
The above clip I believe was taken during a temple festival.
What are festivals for? Participants should embark on a journey of joy and be merry. If you want to dance, then so be it. If you want to sing, then so be it. It’s a festival; you should be in a celebration mood.  In India, from death to birth, everything is accompanied by dance and music. So, where did we borrow our culture from?
Some of these guys come from estates or poor families. The only entertainment or place for them to grab some attention is through things like this. So let them have some fun. Don’t push them too hard, give them some breathing space. I’ve danced in streets, festivals, birthday parties and other occasions; I’m doing just fine. You certainly can’t fucking call me pariah, because you know I will fuck you up back. Just because this Machas are defenseless, you throw in words from their parent’s upbringing right up to their caste.
I saw another video a few months back where one Indian girl was dancing in the streets, by invitation of a local radio station road cruiser. There was absolutely nothing wrong with the way the girl had danced, and it was Bharatanatyam that she danced. Yet, I see so many people putting negative remarks on that poor girl.
There is absolutely nothing wrong dancing in the streets, and dancing in the streets does not and will not contribute to social ills. It is the mentality of the people who oppress and put on negative remarks on this young Machas that will ultimately put them in the path of crime.
Enada culture punde? All your culture pundes are being ripped apart in Indian clubs all over Malaysia. Curb and do something about that first, instead of charging these boys with the offence of humiliating our culture.
When rich Indian girls dance on stage in college, all this assholes will literally drop their jaw and look straight onto those bouncing boobs.  When this poor Machas who has got no place for entertainment have some fun, you fuck them up. Mutta pundenggela.
When you watched the clip, I’m sure you had a good laugh. He not only enjoyed himself, he amused people who watched him too. That is precisely what everyone SHOULD do, to be happy and make others happy, no matter what measure it takes.
What is the ultimate purpose of life? To be happy and make others around you happy, and I trust my Machas and Machis will do it better than all those sluts dancing in clubs. Period.

This blog is my personal writing basing on who I am in real life.  I can always leave out vulgarities, but then on-wards the originality will not be there. So , please do not persuade me to avoid it. Let my sin accumulate with me, if you do have concern, show it to the Sai Fund instead. If I’m furious, then you will see something like below.This is a targeted post, not for general clubbers.

Tell me what obscene things you can see or how our Indian culture is getting devalued because of the above dance?

On another note, I’ve started a charity run for a poor girl below.  Please donate and help this poverty-stricken Indian girl. My guess is her Facebook name might be Pinkylicious Princess A/P Andiappan.

    Durai, with all due respect, I hope to one day defy all norms of what people think of me and dance for Thaipusam in front of the Thanneer Panthals in Penang… Just let my hair down, experience fun broken down to its bare essentials…

    Just to let you know, Indian Classical dancers would disagree with your take on the Mahsa girl’s dancing. Even in cinemas, we (Indian classical dancers generally) hate Indian classical dance being poorly imitated… It’s not wrong for her to dance baratanatyam for a modern day song, but she’s doing it very poorly, which is a huge besmearing. I tell people, everyone I meet, all dancers whom imitate baratanatyam not to do it if they can’t do it properly. It’s blasphemous (case example, Ajith in Godfather). Better yet if they don’t try it at all… And please Durai, you should know that I am still a big fan… Just something I thought you ought to know…

    Otherwise, BRILLIANT POST!!!!!!

    @Hdaran : I perfectly understand your take on this issue, as you’re a way (WAY) professional dancer. I really respect your opinion and it will be ignorant for me not to accept your opinion regarding this particular blog. I have no experience whatsoever regarding Bharatam except for my sincere love and attraction towards this dance.

    It may be wrong in how the girl might have performed, but I’m trying to emphasize on how people are trying to implicate that she’s a disgrace to society. She’s definitely not, she may be nowhere near to real dancers, but for ignorant people like me , it may look wonderful.

    I’m a big fan of Bharatam, and will always remain so. If it anyway disgraced the art you had been pursuing for years, I sincerely apologize.

    Bro Durai,

    Nice post as usual. Just to share my comment on the ‘rule of not drinking during urumee’, unfortunately this is not observed all the time. I’ve seen the boys hiding behind cars to drink during their urumee group procession, this was at ipoh thaipusam festival a couple of years ago.

    I got to agree with you on the part where society tends to have clear double standards when criticizing. Dance is dance. For me, it is a form of escapism, and for many, it is one way of truly enjoying themselves while forgetting all their problems and worries. They deserve to be let to have fun without being judged by others. Having said that, i however, do not advocate the type dancing as shown in the last clip. Of course you can do it, but in the privacy of your own home, or with people who know you well, not by posting it on the net for the world to see.

    Durai, it’s a big honor to have a post dedicated to me :) Thanks so much!

    The last video was just disgusting. With some faggot singing and another faggot dancing!! What was that?? A pathethic attempt to strip tease? Even if it was a strip tease, own up to it la…Bodoh!!

    On the other hand, the Mahsa college girl was cute. But emm…the first video….the dance….well like you said nothing wrong with the dancing on the streets….very step-up-ish i would say….but it seriously did not look like a dance to me.

    I agree with this post Durai bro. Its my 1st time commenting here. Few months back, I saw this Mahasa Girl’s video posted in one of a popular group in FB. They comments were way to negative towards the girl and they were overall talking about the girl’s parents, siblings and etc. When I commented against them.. by saying, ‘there’s nothing wrong in the girls performance’, but the replies i got was way too bad bro. Tey called me a slut for saying against them. Since then I was afraid to tell my opinion out till now. Im really impressed with ur writting bro. Keep it up :)

    Good post but I disagree with the facts you have presented above. We do not live in India where the general public are Indians who will understand the significance of the urumi and dancing during ratham. Like it or not , we live in Malaysia where Indians do not form the majority of the population. Hence , acts like above will be subjected to ridicule and criticism ( by other races and perhaps even Indians as well ). The first impression that others will get when they pass-by is that these group of Indians youths are drunk. Adding to the fact these are Indians, they would almost certainly be labeled as dropouts , thugs and etc. That is the public ( other races ) perception of Indians in general here in Malaysia. Some might argue that some of their best friends are Chinese , Malay and etc but the fact remains that Indians in Malaysia do not get the respect they deserve from other races in Malaysia. We have systematically subjected to oppression by current government in power. And scenes such as above does not help to change this perception. Its not more of a culture but rather how should one behave when they are in the view of the general public. No it is not a crime but it is inappropriate.

    The Indian culture is very simple:
    If it’s pleasing enough, then it’s considered good.
    If it’s displeasing, it’s bad.

    Example of pleasure: half nude girl trying to jiggle off a cockroach in her pants (Pinkylicious video). As long as some elder Indian can see bouncing boobs, he’ll give that shit a green light.

    Example of displeasure: fully, well- clad girl trying to dance Bharathanatyam and a guy enjoying a macha dance at a thiruvizha. Why is this bad? Because the girl is too decent. that’s the reason. The whole “spoiling Bharathanatyam” crap is just hypocrite talk.

    and forgive me for this but, at least that girl tried her best to do Bharathanatyam and be descent. why can’t people see that? what’s with the stereotyping that she’s ruining Bharathanatyam?

    We (Indians in whole) are not concerned about the things that we should be really concerned about. We gotta change that first.

        Would you prefer to watch an Indian girl doing a disgraceful booty shake dance with skimpy clothes,
        or would you prefer to watch an Indian girl trying her best to do the Bharathanatyam?

            I may not be an Indian Classical Dancer. But I, sir, understand the value of art.
            I’m a musician.

            Yes.. “Abominations” indeed. Video number 3 is an abomination because she’s trying Bharathanatyam. Instead of making critics that she’s spoiling Bharathanatyam, why don’t you try make a much constructive comment, sir?

            ‘Blasphemy’ is the term you choose to label modern Indians who are trying to do a Bharathanatyam. If people like you discourage younger generations like us, how do you expect our great Tamil culture to live?

            That’s the basic problem with you people. Never satisfied with a person’s efforts. you people always have something discouraging to say to the younger generation. Change that Attitude first before accusing people of spoiling Bharathanatyam.

      • Thumb up Thumb down -1

        It’s sad that you can’t seem to differentiate constructive criticism from one aimed at maiming someone. Read my comment properly first, I said, if one wants to do Indian classical dance he/she should do it correctly! You, my friend are reading between lines. Besides, I am not sitting in ignorance just commenting… I am, will be and will die in pursuit of the purest of art forms the world has ever seen, Indian classical dancing.
        If you call poor imitation of a timeless classic (baratanatyam) a way of our Tamil culture to live then I feel nothing but pity for you. It’s time you learnt what real Tamil culture entails. All the more sad in your case because you are a musician and here you are commenting with no proper grounds to back your arguments. I pointed out but one simple perspective to this whole scenario which was very gracefully accepted by even the author himself…
        Dude, I am not encouraging the younger generations???!!! HAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!! This is epic!!! My friend, do you know how many people I know that have taken me as an example to pursue Indian classical dance? Do you know how many young people I have danced with and have lead into the dance scene? I was part of the initiation of one of the most well-known emerging Indian dance companies in KL (a company that has produced classical, modern and contemporary Indian performances). I am not the best of dancers but I have done and am doing my part for its preservation… You have NO IDEA how insulting your comment was!!! That wasn’t my point of replying your first comment initially i.e. to humiliate or degrade you… I was trying to amicably explain to you what I meant by ‘blasphemous’ to poorly imitate Indian classical dancing. But your subsequent comments left me no choice but to chose the words which I have typed out. If you still think your bigoted idea is infallible then my best wishes to you and may God save you! I will not bother replying…

          Wait.. “If one wants to do Indian classical dance he/she should do it correctly”. So, you expect people to learn Bharathanatyam well so that they can dance Bharathanatyam in front of a camera when randomly picked by a Radio Station On-The-Road crew to dance for some randomly played song?

          All the best in your Bharathanatyam journey. I got respect for it, I seriously do.

          I could keep on going and arguing with you like an irrational person, but I don’t wanna spam this post and stuff. Dude, I didn’t even pull you into an argument in anyway. If you hated my comment so much, just click the Dislike button like everyone else and live your life. You just had to start something, eh?

          I quoted that “hypocrite talk” thingy because I knew how hurtful it felt being criticized negatively after a group dance performance. That’s why I stated it. If I had some beef with you, I would have replied directly to your comment.

            “Mahsa Gal – Come on .. everyone has the right to dance..they dont have to have the mastery of bharatanatyam to do that..in that case I have to be michael jackson to do the moonwalks or Bob Marley to enjoy n dance reggae..So leave the girl alone!”

    Most of the ppl who commented here has different opinions about all the videos. Let’s analyze 1 by 1 shall we ? :)

    1) Video 1 , The guy dancing on the street :

    Why do ppl discriminate him ? Just because of the dance ? Well, like what the blogger has said, he dances as it is a festival. We celebrate a festival just as happy as we are as our heart is. We let the emotions flow, the fundamentals of rights and wrongs unnoticed , the momentum of happiness uncounted for and the perseverance of not bothering other ppl in enjoying our moments while having a feasta. It might be true like what “mindrunner” says that we do not live in India, that ppl might be looking down at us just because we dance in the streets as thou we are drunk or just because we are thugs. Well, do ppl here think that by not dancing, that fact will be turned around by other races? :) Malays does their Rempit stuffs as well, don’t we do the same by classifying that all Malays do the same ? :) Its not the perception here that counts, its how we bring our-self. The culture of enjoying Indian festivals and the spirit’s of it is known not only to Indians, but other races as well. To be blatantly supporting the fact that we Indians do not how to appreciate our festivals is a no gamer game :)

    Changes need to come from our-self first. You drive around, saw some Indian gals wearing skirts entering into a club and you just drive away. But at the same time, if you were to see some Indian gals dancing Bharatanatyam on the streets, you would give a peculiar look, wait, a better term would be a disgusting look :) Yen inthe difference ? Aren’t Indian gals involved in both situations ? We need to have a better mindset to look a view in different angles’ to make our-self better.

    2) Video 2 , Kutty Ayya :

    Appedi enna vayasene inthe payenekke ayya varevetchange ? :S ..Looking at him, it looks more like a trained professional to generate more audience for that urumi team. Why all these publicities? Sigh.. Parent’s would be advising us since small not to smoke etc , but avenge permission ode inthe paiyan churutte masuk! Ippeve ippedina, future le eppedi ? :D ( Play background music of The Keys here : “Kaingelam karatte mandellam bulatte”! :D

    3) Video 2 , The Mahsa chickies :p

    A radio station, 2 Mahsa chicks that happened to be there with their friends and a person with a camera phone ;) We could put the blame on 2 parts ; ie on the gals and 2nd on the gals again :)

    Why do the gals have to perk up a dance imitating 1 of the world’s beautiful dances’? They couldn’t find anything else to be taken as the example for ? Why ? Even the great Bharatanatyam dancer in Malaysia, Ramli Ibrahim would be condoning such an act by these gals.

    Dancing is not prohibited, yet disgracing a dance is strictly a no no.

    4) Video 3 ,The lovely ass-shaker :D

    Ini gua tada ceritera la..Saya manyak shuka sama dia :p Kutthena ippedi than kutthenum! :D Avelodde iduppe aruna kayire appedithan adethe :p

    Sigh.. I rest my case here la… Tada cerita..Apa mau bikin sama Indians di Suvarnabumi? Just saying things to fix it wont happen. Ie as a saying in Tamil goes : Kalathelle erungenathan paiyan unde :)

    I fully agree with Mindrunner statements and comment of uremee dance.The Public (other races) dont understand about these dance.Furthermore,they have negative perceptions ,i.e the youth are drunk and so on.As it is the other races have no respect for Malaysian Indians.Due to many reasons .Our economic stake is small compared to Chinese ,who control the business and also systematic discrimination for the past 50 years.30 or 40 years ago ,many malaysian indian holding top position in most Govt Dept.Now position all fill up by Malays.Though we are minority ,if we unite we can do well in all aspects.Dont have to beg UMNO for scholarships and others .Just look at the Chinese ,they dont need govt at all.Self sufficient.We Indians are hardworking ,,resilient and have strong will power compared to other races.Always.should think to upgrade our economic status and not to waste time with tamil movie entertainments.Our youth shuold be englightened on what is going on in this country ,and what will happen if we remain complacent.

    Dancing on streets:- Music is a universal language..whether it is Africa, To Berlin, to Rio, to Goa, or to Thaipusam..Ppl dance for beats and music..it’s not about perception of whatsoever. I in my mid 30s and a commendable position in an international organization. But hell yeah i still dance to beats whether it’s urumee, Bongo’s at Pangkor festival, or simply in the clubs for drum & bass..it’s all united through one thing which is called “MUSIC”..do we care about perceptions..hell no…all that cares is what makes you happy..
    Ayya Boy – Been there done that..It’s mind over actions.. But simply giving curuts to the poor boy is ridiculous…the boy’s parents should be asked to lean against the wall and swaaaaaaamp a saaatai adi..
    Mahsa Gal – Come on .. everyone has the right to dance..they dont have to have the mastery of bharatanatyam to do that..in that case I have to be michael jackson to do the moonwalks or Bob Marley to enjoy n dance reggae..So leave the girl alone!
    Pinkylicious – Mmmm what can I say… sit back and enjoy because o her dumbness to get this recorded..

    hmm..a world famous Indian classical dance school in KL has a number of dance teachers who come across as haughty and arrogant. I believe having learnt this ancient art and the greatness of the dance itself got too much into their heads…

    Ultimate aim is to live life happily. Everyone has the right to express their feeling of happiness. Some do it by dancing.

    However some dances are just nauseating and is just inappropriate for the occasion. We live in a multi-ethnic community. The other ethnics were informed that the occasion is devotional, but the dances doesn’t reflect a divine cause. The dances which accompany devotional processions signify a wacko having nerve problem and more like releasing pent up frustration. It’s simply disgusting and tarnishing.

    The machas or the numskulls have every right to dance to their heart’s content but do it in their own gathering, away from public view.

    Culture is subjective and each one with their interpretation, so we agree on common ground. This agreement is not a written rule but understanding. The real problem is, desire. When desire is uncontrolled, one tend to violate others’ right.

    True what you’ve said there. =] Nothing is wrong with dancing. It’s good to make others happy and feel happy ourselves. But most of the guys drink and dance at these festivals. Which is rather disturbing for people who wants to see the lord or walk peacefully. Who would like it when the machans use the opportunity of the so called dancing to touch and hit others?..seriously. Wth is all that about? ..Wouldn’t people have bad thoughts then? I’m talking about those covered with only the face, neck and half arm shown that gets this. I know there’s no point telling you this cuz it’s not like you can change their behaviour or anything..

    Can’t blaim those who says “all indians are like this, dancing like a bunch of drunkard hooligans at a festival like this” with that type of behaviour. I’ve heard that sentence myself and that too said by someone who is not indian. Typical mindsets will always stereotype, we can’t stop them..

    I myself enjoy seeing them dance and the whole festival would be really dull if they don’t dance. But people won’t critise if they dance and NOT disturb others. Go ahead move like you’ve lost it or even it’s not even called dancing but just don’t disturb others. Semua hidup aman dan damai. Those who critise won’t even have the face to comment if that happens.

    Just thought of telling..=] I don’t mean to create any sort of argument. Backing off humbly.

    I think it is unfair to call girls dancing in clubs sluts. They’re enjoying themselves, and they’re not necessarily sleeping with lots of men: sometimes they just want to dance with their friends.
