Lezim is a very popular folk dance form in Maharashtra. The word Lezim in Sanskrit means beauty. Its a dance form that involves a combination of physical exercise and the art of dancing. It's done with a small mallet to the music of drums at times.
The above photograph was clicked on the day of Maharashtrian new year, Gudi Padwa. The vibrant colors and the synchronised movement of the dancers make this dance form a very fascinating performance. This dance is also seen during the Ganesh Visarjan festivities.
