Boston, Nov. 9, 2013 -- Boston University Dheem dancers Aisha Rawji, BU senior, right, and Samantha Venkatesh, BU sophomore, left, practice last-minute choreography in Boston University's George Sherman Union in Boston, MA, to the song 'Tamally Maak' in preparation for BU Dheem's Indian dance presentation entitled, 'Mahila', the following evening. "This is my last performance," said Rawji. "We were going to have a performance in the spring, too, but we have too many competitions coming up." Rawji said the Indian word 'mahila' means 'women', and that the team chose the title to honor the women in the participating dancers' lives. Dancers from BU, Harvard, and MIT participated in the show. Photograph by Carolyn Bick.
