Antaranga Sai…Convocation Drama…

What makes a student of Bhagawan, of His Institute, effectively potent, efficient to face the challenges with confidence??? …And what makes the long-cherished dream of a youth to serve the needy successful???…The XXXIII Convocation Drama this evening in Prasanthi Nilayam has the answer.

On the eve of the 89th Birthday of Bhagawan, students of SSSIHL presented a drama entitled ‘Antaranga Sai’ this evening here in Prasanthi Nilayam.

The presentation revolved around the turbulent journey of youngster, the protagonist, with a load-full of values and principles in life, only to overcome temporary hiatus to emerge as a winner in life with Sai shining within….

At a prestigious Interview Board, when the protagonist opened up, speaking about His life with Bhagawan, it unraveled the story of Lakshman, a pass out at SSSIHL.

How much one can hold on, sticking to one’s own principles of Truth and Righteousness??? Lakshman had moments of turbulence in his life, with his career turned stagnant, men around advising him to explore the world of exploitation and manipulation to win with short-cuts…

At a time, during his onward journey, when Lakshman turned helpless, almost losing his land, thus his dream project, owing to sheer absent-mindedness, he chose to travel to Prasanthi Nilayam to participate in an Old Students’ Meet, Prema Bandhan.

…And the occasion turned out to be the best learning lesson in His life, when he reinvented His ‘True Love’, Love Within…Love replaced contempt, wickedness, sorrowful feeling… and Lakshman got back his lost land, only to pursue his dream project with added passion and commitment, following Bhagwan’s dictum: LOVE ALL SERVE ALL.

Earlier, the session commenced with Sai Krishna Award Felicitation for excellence in Research and Training. The winners are: Dr TR Rajeshwari, Sri Rajkumar Jain, Dr Shailesh Shrivastava and Mr Bhaskaran from Anantapur, Brindavan, Prasanthi Nilayam and Muddenahalli Campuses respectively.

Chancellor of the Institute Mr Justice (Retd) MN Venkatachalaiah gave away the presentations. The award consists of a certificate, a memento and a cash award of Rs.25,000.

The programme ended with a chorus song. Bhajans continued and ended with Bhagawan singing “Hari Bhajana Bina…” Mangala Arathi at 1930 hrs. marked the end of the proceedings.

As the title suggests, it was the story of finding ‘True Love’ within, depicting the Bond of Love between Bhagawan and His students.

Tomorrow, 23rd November, marks the Advent Of Bhagawan. Let’s all join together with firm commitment to follow the Path Of Sai!!!
