Saraswati day and my bali dance

May 2th was Saraswati Day which is another religious day in Bali where the Balinese perform ceremonies like they did on Nyepi with the Ogoh-Ogohs. This day is to worship the goddess Saraswati who is the goddess of knowledge, art, dance, and music. It is interesting that my daddy remembers praying to this goddess too in India. On this day in Bali, girls perform dances at school. We did a special ceremony at the Green School. I was one of the dancers. I danced the Baliness dance named Rejang. I was nervous when we first started practicing, but now that I’m good at it I’m fine. Afterwards, I felt beautiful like the goddess.
