Tim, this “Daler Mehndi” is for you!

This is a video that one of my favorite students brought to motion design class one day. All these years later I still love the finger choreography.

    What are the odds, that a set of quadruplets could all be so talented and great finger dancers too?

    If only I spoke Hindi so the true genius could be understood in its’ entirety.

    This was a favorite of ours at work. One co-worker bet another he could not listen to it for the while day at work. It was fun trying to get to get through a meeting with this playing in the background.

    There is a version out there that has subtitled in english.

    I doubt I’m alone when I say that Scott’s version of this dance is far superior to the original.

    Thanks for the shout out.

    This is one of my favorite non-English songs and certainly my favorite Hindi song. I was seriously singing this just a few days ago. I think I need to listen to some new music.

    Hello, I had attended Ricks many a year ago, and had some classes from you. At the time you were working on a childrens book about cowbirds. I was wondering if you ever finished that book. Just recently my brother adopted a little girl. We were sitting around discussing some things, and I remembered your illustrations for the cowbird, and I believe it was about adoption. My name is Sam El Halta. If you have a chance you could respond through my blog, or by email, at sam.elhalta@iron.k12.ut.us

    I remember that class, ha ha good times! I was looking for this song a little while ago but couldn’t remember the name of it so thanks for posting.
