It was considered to be vulgar as it was mostly performed by courtesans to impress the kings. Her journey was not an easy one.

She is proud of everything she has achieved so far. She is still on stage performing, dancing and entertaining the world, making a niche for herself. In the future her name will be taken for all those females who might think less of themselves; it is high time that we have equality in everything and anything.
