Oh.....the woes of Dancing....

'Sen' is in deep trouble.
She has a show on the 7th.
And her knees are bloody and scraped and have turned black and blue from too much 'baghlei'. (That's a Manipuri term for going round and round on your knees...it is an integral part of the classical dance form)
Knee caps aren't helping. They hurt even more.
And though 'Sen' is possibly the worst dancer in the group...(she trips like a hundred times for each round of 'baghlei'she does...and is clumsy too...and can't go round in perfect circles as almost all the others manage to do..) she will have to put on a semblance of performance on the 7th....won't she???
So, does anybody have any tips on how to make black and blue and bloody knees heal in record time? (And while thinking please keep in mind that 'Sen' can't rest her knees completely till the 7th...she has rehearsals you see...)
'Sen' will be eternally grateful for a tip that works....and promises to feed the kind hearted soul as much chocolate fudge sundae as he/she desires....

Have no fear, Uncle Anc is well versed in torture like this... Twas a stage rehearsal in Us and Them where Uncle Anc jumped on his knees and a wayward nail in Gyan Manch stuck up... Knee Pads did help... However, band aids and ice packs are better idea to soothe the pain...

On another thought, the same thing has happenned during our last BCL play as well.... heheheheheh ... I am injury prone...

Sen, I guess you will have to bear up with the pain...
