"I learned this, at least, by my experiment; that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours" -Henry David Thoreau

Prashant Kakad - DJ, Owner of "Bollywood Dreams"

On stage, Prashant is colorful, flashy and vibrant. The entire crowd stays mesmerized as he guides them in the art of Bollywood Bhangra dancing. The room pops and, no matter who you are or how much rhythm you lack, you can't help but move along. 

Not too long ago, he was a software engineer at Intel. Depressed, overweight and too afraid himself to ask anyone to dance, Prashant was the last person you'd imagine leading dance crowds by the thousands. 

Yet he had to start somewhere.

Follow Prashant's DJ adventures and catch one of his shows.
