Ice Dance

 This is known as the most amazing performance in the history of ice skating.

This performance brought tears to the 10,000 spectators present.

Babo, a male dancer, has been blind since childhood.  In a house fire…in order to protect him, his mother held him tightly in her arms and jumped from the 7th floor. His mother died as a result, and little Babo became blind due to a hemorrhage in his eyes. His mother was an ice skater before she died. Babo also had a soft spot for ice skating.

Although he couldn’t see anything, he still pursued ice skating dance enthusiastically. He danced the famous Tango…La Cumparsita with his partner at the World Figure Skating Championships in Helsinki. His ears can measure the surrounding sound and distance like a bat.

The female dancer is very amazing. She danced with him and led him for a long time. Most of the whole process was led by her, and Babo followed her to perform difficult movements. Who would have thought that he had 22 fractures in his body?

HI Sam,
I had this terrific moment of nostalgia, as I was watching the ‘Jaffna’
post sent in by Narme .

If you think these pic are ok for the post – please add them on . 

— Sunset Reflections …. A moment to Pause and Reflect …
— Nallur Temple with a group of young Roman Catholic Nuns — something one would never have seen in days gone by . This is the ultimate Unity in
Diversity .
I was happy to see them, and the ‘mother superior ‘ took this photo of me
with her group .

— Drive along the Kayts Causeway , Visiting the temples , Jaffna Market —
Sunset Walk along the Jaffna Fort area , were memorable moments .
Though I must say, returning to the mainland after visiting Nagadeepa and
Nagapoosani Amman Temple , in a very , very over loaded SL Navy Ferry was
some cause for anxiety- for I thought we would all perish !

— The Jet Wing Lobby photo- -the young lad- I had to take this pic as , for
me was Rajabalendran in his younger days !!!!

Rajabalendran and Maithri were very helpful to me, in the planning of this
trip and Walkers Tours did the rest with the car/ driver / accommodation etc
A most memorable trip it was for me .
Thanks again for the Jaffna Post .
Deepthie .
