Post Sangamam – It was a great experience to have had such a wonderful successful show with a mad rush for the sale of tickets leading up to the event.
Thank you to all the members of the Vedanta Centre of Sydney, their volunteers who worked tirelessly from 12:00pm to 12:00am.
The dance teachers Hamsa Venkat of the Samskriti School of Dance; Padma Balakumar of Nrityagriha School of Dance, Sharmila Maitra of the Geetanjali School of Dance; Aruna Gandhimathinathan of the Silambam School of Dance; Ruchi Sanghi and her students and Mridula Subramanian.
After a serene start to the sounds of the cello accompanied by a prayer like rendition of Megh Malhar and Ragam Lathangi by myself, thanks to Giridhar and Niranjan Deodhar, to the united efforts of all dance teachers seeing the formation of the emblem take fruition, it was truly an art in coordination that was finally worked through 15 minutes before the doors were opened.
Between curtains, light, music, announcements and the sculpturistic poses that the dancers, one who pleaded (Please don’t sing the verse for too long, we have to hold the pose for all that time !! )from all schools held for the 3 divine minutes which set the mood for the evening.
A standing ovation to Layam, Janakan Raj’s group of musicians with Abarna Suthanthiraraj on the Saxophone;
I feel incapable of writing a review for a program I organised, but it was most rewarding in more ways than one !! Hope it was so for those who attended the event. Thank you for coming.
Look out for our next event soon … !!
Sangamam is a Union, a coming together, a meeting. Be it of hearts, minds, thoughts and actions, philosophies or religion.
