Colour and pageantry at the Annual Sports & Cultural Meet…

Little ‘Primary’ Children from Sri Sathya Sai Educational Institutions along with men students from the three campuses of SSSIHL shared the honour in the second and final session of the Annual Sports & Cultural Meet for Sri Sathya Sai Educational Institutions last evening at the Sri Sathya Sai Hill View Stadium in Prasanthi Nilayam. With the little ones, donned in myriad ‘coloured’ hues, marched into the centre-stage loaded with a bunch of skills, the Hill View Stadium in the evening turned into an open theatre of colour and pageantry, telling the ‘unique tale’ of Sathya Sai students.

The post-lunch session commenced at 1625 hrs., according a grand reception to The Divine Chancellor, Whose caravan included the Brass Band from the Brindavan Campus of SSSIHL.

Commencing the proceedings, the ‘Little One’s’ from Smt Easwaramma English Medium High School presented ‘The Way To Ananda’, parading colour and pageantry, synchronized with dance movements. Modeling Hanuman’s ideal story of ‘love and devotion’, the presentation with a series of dance offerings coupled with floor exercises, was based on the theme, ‘Bend the Body, Mend the Senses and End the Mind’, epitomizing perfect spiritual attunement.

Taking their turn next, the students from the Primary School then presented a series of colourful dance offerings alongside ground and aerial acrobatics. Their presentation was rich and unique with ‘natural’ themes of Flora and Fauna coupled with Spirituality. Swami’s beautiful children ended their campaign on a high note with a final collective offering of gratitude and dedication, a spectacle of light at the dawning twilight.

Continuing from where they seemed to have left in the morning, the men students along with their juniors from the Higher Secondary then presented an hour of entertainment, spectacle of sheer brilliance and confidence. Their range of display included an LED synchronized basketball match in the heights, glittering shadow dance in the cover of darkness, an ensemble of dance offering depicting India’s diverse culture, spectacular floor gymnastics with a touch of daredevilry, martial art display of Karate, ‘Chinese’ Thai, ‘Chinese’ Shaolin Kung Fu, and brilliant spectacle of dance with the national theme ‘Jai Ho…’ and ‘Chak De India…’, saluting Motherland India.

A dazzling display of fireworks under the night sky followed by Mangala Arathi at 1920 hrs. marked the end of the proceedings.
