I am so ecstatic!! Its not that I never hoped this day would come, but now that it has,I can’t believe it !! Am I dreaming? Is the result of hoping from heart so strong? Hope has motivated me ever since I was a kid.I always knew I wanted to be a Hollywood star!! I grew up watching Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Arnold Schwarzenegger and I had always dreamt of joining their league. Dance has always been my passion and it lead me joining Broadway. Although Broadway is league apart from Hollywood it gave me precious exposure and taught me the discipline. I had expressed my Hollywood dream to Coach on day One and he helped me in every possible way. My dream, my hope has been my strength , my motivator and I am happy that the day has finally arrived!! I cleared auditions for the lead of Woody Allen’s NEXT and have been asked to meet for finalizing the Casting details!! Sam and me are going there.No one knows about it , I am planning to surprise everyone and thus have told everyone that am going to Kevin’s Party!! I am so happy that I just can’t sit still!! I am so thankful to Coach, I don’t know if I can ever repay him.
Coach, Our troupe instructor at Broadway.Smart , hardworking, compassionate, tough and dedicated, there is no one better than him. Hardly anyone knows that he used to choreograph action at Hollywood!! Pretty shocking for a Broadway Instructor!! He moved from Hollywood to Broadway 8 years back and I must say is really doing a great job. Today he is one of the most popular instructors’ and I am really really lucky that I got a chance to work with him and have him as my friend.
Samantha aka Sam, my soul mate. Beautiful, vivacious, sexy and smart. Met her here at Broadway. She is perfect except for her drug abuse habit. Year ago, we nearly parted ways due to that. But everything settled back to normal eventually. I am happy that it got settled, what would I have done without her in life? I have even moved in her apartment that she shares with Nichelle. All is well, except Kim.I started dating her during Sam’s Drug abuse period and never had guts to tell me about me and Sam coming together. In fact, today I asked her for marriage and Boy!! she was so happy. I thought that will stop her nagging for a while. Then,I would breakup later citing my inability of maintaining long distance relation to migration to Hollywood.
Me, the ever dreamy guy. Started Broadway 5 years back hoping to make big there and then in Hollywood..What more should I say…actually nothing more to say other than that I am very happy today!!

“When will the steel rod go??!!”
“Never…It is to keep your femur in place but with proper treatment you should be able to walk in 5 months hence…I must say you are one lucky guy, you managed to escape death!! seeing the car wreck no one would say there did be any survivors”
