Assam Parthi Yatra concludes…

15 July, Prasanthi Nilayam: Parthi Yatra contingent from Assam offered a variety of programmes, mainly dance and song sequences, depicting the rich cultural heritage of the North East Indian State, yesterday on the second and final evening of its Parthi Yatra 2015.

The programme was based on contemporary dance tradition of the State, essentially presented with the aid of legendary Dr Bhupen Hazarika’s compositions.

The theme chosen were Time, presented based on Bhagawan’s oft-repeated maxim Time Waste Is Life Waste, followed by a presentation on Assam’s own Brahmaputra, showcasing the plight of the people of Assam, facing the wrath of Nature’s fury invariably year after year. The presentation served a timely reminder to be compassionate towards the suffering masses, especially those who dwells on the river bank.

The final offering was “Dola O’ Dola…”, based out on the theme of the aristocratic supremacy over the poor and downtrodden, who would be forced to carry the rich aristocratic ones on palanquins, alias ‘dolas’. The song was intended to inculcate empathy for the suffering masses.

Earlier, the programme commenced with a Shiva Stuthi followed by a patriotic piece, Vande Mataram.

Bhajans continued next and ended with Mangala Arathi at 1815 hrs.
