While you were doing something inevitably less productive this weekend, Columbia’s own Bollywood fusion dance squad, Dhoom, was competing alongside eleven similar groups at the alliterative and aptly named South Asian Showdown in Boston. Not only were they competing, they were succeeding! The team placed second in the Fusion/Hindi Film category, tying a group of coreless heathens from Brown and being bested only by Broadstreet Baadshahz of Philadelphia, the eventual winners of the competition.
This result represents tremendous progress for Dhoom, which, according to men’s captain Taylor Sanders, CC’13, was not even accepted to the Boston competition last year. Bwog extends its heartiest congratulations to all!

@Anonymous The team’s a browntown team, it counts
@Dhoom may have won, but there was a distinct lack of Raahi Sheth. Congratulations, though!
@Anonymous i can’t get over how cliquey browntown is
@Anonymous One third of the Dhoom team is not brown…
@Anonymous no one cares
@Anonymous Also- Dhoom competed against over 70 other teams to even get to compete in this competition!!! What an accomplishment.
@Dhoom Dhoom Dhoom Gotta Get That Dhoom is nothing without the support of the Columbia community – thank you! We hope you guys continue to follow us on campus and we hope to continue to compete and represent the Lions, Bollywood style!
@SheilaKiJawani OMG I LOVE DHOOM, THEY’RE THE MASALA TO MY CHAI, CONGRATS GUYZ xx
@really simple they said something really dumb so I responded with something just as dumb. I just went to their level.

@Go back to 1865 To where Columbia, South Carolina burns as Confederate forces flee from advancing Union forces.
We burn Boston and turned their tea to smoke as we breath in the earl grey victory.
earl grey is really good though
