Dreams Have Kept Them Going In These Dark TimesLiving in the entertainment capital of the country, dreams of stardust have kept this team going in the bleakest of times in the Kandivali slums. When talking about their aspirations, the captain - Govardhan Sandar, as well as all the other members of the group power their aspirations through sheer determination and enthusiasm.
"He used to dance hidden in the shadows, late at night after everyone had gone to sleep to avoid antagonising his father who did not approve of dancing. He tried to, but just could not stop," said Usha Sandar, Govardhan's mother.
It all started when the group watched a reality dance TV show and saw how anybody, including people from slums, could shine on that stage.
"We thought coming on the TV is something only the rich people could do, but after watching the show we became very determined that this is what we want to achieve," says 12-year-old Govardhan.
