Varsha Ritu Sangeet Sandhya 2012

Dates: 9th of August ,Thursday,2012, at 6.30.p.m
Venue: Tagore Theatre, Chandigarh

The monsoon treat organised by our society on the 9th of August definitely proved to be a treat not only to the eyes, but also to the well-being of our region, as it brought with it the long awaited monsoon rains! Daksha Mashruwala, an undoubted Orissi dancer 'par excellence' started her recital with a beautifully choreographed invocation to Lord Vishnu in her expression of the 'Dash-avtaar'. She had with her a group of four well trained students, who enhanced the beauty of her entire performance.Her musicians also deserve a special mention..

Vocals: Jatin Sahu
Mardala: G.Ramprasad
Flute: Vijay Tambe
Violin:Agni Mitr Behera

Daksha ji performed for approximately two hours and concluded with a beautiful composition dedicated to the five elements. She also danced to 'Vaishnav jan toh', one of Gandhi ji's favourite bhajans with such abandon..was truly 'Divine!'. We were fortunate enough to have with us well known classical singers from the northern region - Dr.Nivedita Singh, Dr.Alankar Singh and Dr. Gurinder Harnam Singh , who were gracious enough to lend their beautiful voices in the rendition of the bhajan, as a special tribute to Sh. Navjivan Khosla.

This day was a special day for us all, as, it happened to be the 90th birthday of our esteemed President, Sh. Navjivan Khosla, whose contribution to the growth of Indian National Theatre is in-expressible in words! We all pray that the Lord blesses him with a long ,happy ,healthy life ahead !
