Everything But Nirvana: The Authentic Leadership Journey of a Japanese Buddhist, Shoukei MATSUMOTO

I miss Bollywood!

Though I am Buddhist priest, I am married and have a child.
It's very common for Buddhist priests to get married in Japan.


Both I and my wife love India so much that I chose ISB, a famous business school in India, when I went to study MBA.
(I will write about why I got MBA in another article)
We named my son Koga, which means Ganga in Japanese.


We lived in Hyderabad India for a year.
Since then, Ganga can eat spicy curry as much spicy as one for adults.


Even in Japan, we often miss India.


Today, we watched a movie of Salman Kahn (my wife bought his DVD at Indian shop in Tokyo).
During dance scenes, Ganga danced with joy.
I want him to practice Bollywood dance.
If anybody knows good Bollywood dance class in Tokyo, please let me know :-)

In contrast, different kinds of dance performance are developing in Japan.
As my Indian friends may enjoy, I show you one :)
