Madhya Pradesh & Chhattisgarh Presentation…

Man today falls far short of understanding the crux of the goal of his sojourn called life, portrayed the youth from Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh presenting a musical dance drama in Hindi entitled ‘Sanjeevani For Life’ this evening here in Prasanthi Nilayam. The presentation was an offering as a part of the ongoing four day Parthi Yatra by the twin states to the Divine Abode.

Portraying the vicious gloomy nature of the present era, where righteousness is at its low ebb, the presentation with flashbacks from the illustrious lives of preceding Avatars, Lord Sri Rama, Bhagawan Sri Krishna and Bhagawan Shirdi Sai, depicted the absolute necessity for man to turn inward, expanding his heart to embracing oneness of entire creation, seeing Him in all, animate and inanimate. Man has to detach himself from the thick veil of illusion that misleads him, making His message a way of his life.

During the presentation, legendary epical character Narada comes in modern garb, bumping into the modern men of present day, of unrighteous character, ending up opening their eyes and hearts teaching them better lessons, with the help of flashbacks from the lives of preceding Avatars of the ages.

The presentation ended with a group song, singing paeans to Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai, Who is verily the soul refuge for the ill afflicted world of today.

Following the thematic presentation, next half-an-hour, jam packed Sai Kulwant turned vibrant with over twenty youth from Kariha Village of Tribal District Kanker of Chhattisgarh presenting Baarah-Maasi Dance, folk dance of the tribals.

Dancing vibrantly to the rhythmic drum beats, the youth exhibited great acrobatic skills dancing non-stop for over half-an-hour. The dance programme had 12 different forms of dances, namely, Prayers to the Deity, Hariyali Dance – Gedi, Pola Nandi Puja – Phugadi, Javara Dance, Nava Khai Dance, Gondi Dance, Muriya Bastariha Dance, Suva Dance, Holi Dance, Shaadi-Vivaah Dance, Gohul Dance to end with salutations to Mother India, Bharat Mata Presentation.

The presentation was an attempt to present different occasions, moods and emotions of tribal life for each month during the year.

Earlier the session commenced with Veda chanting at 1630 hrs. for twenty minutes followed by a brief introductory talk by the State(s) President of Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisation.

At the end of the presentation even as bhajans continued all the artistes were felicitated by senior Trust officials. Bhajans ended with Bhagawan singing Bhaja Govindam.
