At Curry Bear’s favorite nerdy college, NJIT, there is a dance team called RANG. Like all colleges across the country, RANG is one of the many desi dance teams created by brown people coming together like Voltron – but instead of fighting, they dance. Curry Bear had previously written a lot about RANG but it was mostly negative stuff. However, this year Curry Bear is not out to make fun of RANG. This year, RANG put on a show to benefit a good cause, so instead of criticizing them, he will simply talk briefly about the show. This is not a review of the show, but rather a brief overview of what went down.
Unlike previous years when the Association of Indian Students (AIS) used to host the show, this year the show was hosted by RANG. Rumor has it that the RANG dance members performed shows on NYC subways to get enough money to host the show. This year, the charitable cause was for CRY. According to Curry Bear’s research, CRY (Child Relief & You) is an organization aimed to help children in India. They provide children with basic necessities of life, that most of you spoiled brats take for granted. CRY is run by donors and volunteers, which is what makes it great. So while some of you are sitting on your ass, eating Ben & Jerry’s and crying over Grey’s Anatomy, the members of CRY are helping out poor children by giving them food, shelter and an education. Curry Bear urges you to spare some money and support CRY. In fact, Curry Bear has donated some money towards this organization. To donate check out the official website. CRY
Now onto the RANG show. Curry Bear has never really enjoyed any AIS/RANG shows in the past. They’re often very disorganized and the people dancing in these shows could start their own boy band called Ain’t Sync. However, this year was slightly better than the last. They were able to bring out other teams that belonged to private dance academies (whose names I can’t seem to remember now due to massive consumption of alcohol) as well as TCNJ Saathiya. Curry Bear enjoyed the performances by the little kids, even though they all performed to Dhoom 2. In fact, Curry Bear’s new Asian photographer got excited when he heard the kids were performing to “DOOM 2″. He was very disappointed when he didn’t see any guns, monsters, or The Rock.
Like last year, Curry Bear’s photographer took pictures of this event. They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. But at Curry Bear, a picture is worth a thousand jokes. Curry Bear had to isolate a few images captured at the right moment and add his own words to describe it. They were all done in fun with no intention of making fun of any individual involved in the show. Curry Bear hopes that some of you have enough sense of humor to laugh at these:
This here is the RANG dance team themselves.
Thanks to C-Bear’s photographer for taking a picture of this straight kid at the wrong time.
RANG wasn’t able to get Hrithik Roshan to perform, so they got M.C. Hammer.
If you don’t find this funny, then I guess you can say Curry Bear’s humor is “sikh”.
Aaah, this video will never get old.
Relax everyone, the only thing that is sacrificed at a RANG show is the performer’s dignity.
I hope the RANG girls’ parents see this picture. Ram ram ram!
Aaaah here we have the Sig Rho fraternity. If there was one thing that the RANG show definitely didn’t need, it was the performance by the Sig Rho fraternity. A desi event where uncles & aunties are present is the last place these guys should appear to strut their stuff. They call themselves the Sig Rho “Cobras”. I wish Samuel L. Jackson was present to shoot these frat boys for attacking the RANG show with their out of place performance. There was no point for Sig Rho to appear at this show – I don’t know who slept with who for Sig Rho to come and perform, but there was no need for it. I hope the RANG/AIS people currently present at NJIT read this and take my advice – do not invite fraternity people to come to this show again.
Man, the initiations people go through to join a fraternity have changed since I was in college.
It’s true – RANG takes dance lessons from 80′s Hollywood classics.
Remember these are just joke and if you want to check out the pictures taken by Curry Bear’s Photographer without the jokes, you can find them on Desi Dance Team’s website real soon. Our photographer sold it to them for a date with one of the girls from TCNJ Saathiya. She just does not know it yet. Also if your wondering why we didn’t goof on TCNJ, it is because their performance was so good, funny, and entertaining that we did not feel the need to. Good job as always. Rang also did a good job with “The Food Dance”.
