Dance teams from all over the country are in Boston, this weekend, to compete in the annual "Boston Bhangra" competition. Bhangra is a style of dance from the Indian state of Punjab. Most of the dancers competing are not from India, but are young Indian-Americans. WBUR's Meghna Chakrabarti went to a rehearsal to try and get in touch with her roots.
