He failed even to go to the second round.
He again joined the same mega dance festival in the year 2008.
He again failed.
He joined again on the same dance competition in 2009.
He failed again.
What one will do after that?
Surely, after three consecutive year failures, most of us will get fed up and quit . It’s not our cup of tea.
But what about Him????
He never quitted.
He kept on practicing in his home.
Because back of his mind, he is committed.
As the quote says ““Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.” ―James A. Michener.
He joined again in next year in 2010.
This time, he emerged as second winner in that Dance festival.

As dance and song is very popular in every part of India, Karim Ali also liked to enjoy dance show in his local town in Durga puja, kali puja festival , marriage party or in youth festival. He mesmerized when his local expert dancer showcased their talent in the dance festival or competition. One day, just because of his friends request, he also moved his legs.
His friends said you could dance so well.
They insisted him to nurture his talent as dancer.
So he did.
He never got a coach or trainer to practice. But he kept on practicing in his home and over the time, He started enjoying doing different Dance forms.

Once, one can take part in a dance reality show and showcase his or her talent, he or she may become next sought after celebrity over night. You can realize its popularity from the different stories of dance reality show.
Otherwise, you can work as a choreographer also once you are in dance profession.
