Video Of A Woman Doing A Headstand And A Split In A Saree Goes Viral. Such A Star!
From people stories to reporting gruesome crimes, my line of work has me scaling through a variety of genres that have me reading up about things I then write about. And even though working for a feminist platform as such always has me feeling empowered about the kind of stories I write, there is particular sense of feel-good element to stories that are simply about women having fun and breaking stereotypes. Like this woman, who took the internet with her video of doing a headstand in a saree.
The instagram video of the woman recognised as Rukmini Vijayakumar shows her acing some really stunning and impressive moves, with poses that will leave you with your mouth wide open. And what’s more, she does all of that in a saree!
The clip starts with a bang too. Rukmini aces pose after pose, making us drool over her flexibility and the ease with she can be seen carrying out the stunts. From a headstand to a full split, the video is full of mind-blowing moments.
