Folkdancer - Danzatori tradizionali - लोकनर्तक

दिल्ली से लौटते समय वियेना में कुछ घँटों का स्टोपओवर था तो सोचा क्यों न इसका फ़ायदा उठाया जाये और शहर घूमा जाये. शहर पहुँचा तो मालूम चला कि राष्ट्रीय दिवस मनाया जा रहा था और खुले में बहुत जगह पर नृत्य, संगीत के कार्यक्रम हो रहे थे. वहीं क्रोएशिया से आये एक लोकनृत्य दल को देखने का अवसर मिला. पहले ज़माने में लोकनर्तक शायद सचमुच गाँव के पुरानी सभ्यता वाले लोग होते हों, पर आज के यह लोकनर्तक अधिकतर शहरों के पढ़े लिखे, नौकरी वाले लोग होते हैं जो खाली समय में लोकनृत्यों को जीवित रखने का शौक रखते हैं.

On my way back from Delhi, I had a few hours of stopover in Vienna and in that time, I went to the city. There I found that it was some state festival day and there were lot of dance and music concert programmes in the city squares. I watched a folk-dance group from Croatia. Perhaps in the past, the folk dancers were indeed persons living in villages surrounded by the old culture, but today's folk dancers are mostly city persons who feel passionate about using their free time in keeping alive their old traditions.

Durante il mio ritorno da Delhi, avevo alcune ore a Vienna e ho deciso di visitare la città. Arrivato in città, ho scoperto che quel giorno era qualche festa nazionale e facevano diversi spettacoli di danze e concerti nelle piazze. Ho guardato la danze di un gruppo folkloristico di Croazia. Forse una volta questi danzatori tradizionali erano persone dei villaggi che vivevano dentro quella cultura, ma oggi mi sembra che siano sopratutto persone delle città con la passione di mantenere vive le antiche tradizioni nel loro tempo libero.
