Dancing Mantis satirizes parents’ imposing choice of career for their children. Every child has an innate ability (or talent) that, if nurtured well, brings them to the limelight.
The story has its bearing on Robert Frost's The Road Not Taken, a poem where the poet persona is confronted with two choices, and wisely chooses the career that no one else has chosen before. He breaks away from the stereotypical leanings, refusing to join the bandwagon. In the end, his choice pays off.
In the book, Professor Lambert insists that his daughter, Gift, must toe his path and choose an ‘enviable’ career for herself.
The girl, however, loves dancing and wishes to be a celebrated musician in the long run. But her decision comes with an invidious prize that threatens her familial bond with her father. Can she stick to her passion despite all odds?
