I was fortunate and blessed to attend the Kala Sadhanalaya presentation "Jagat Pavani Ganga" a unique Dance-Music-Theatre Presentation at Narada Gana Sabha (Sadguru Gnanananda Hall) on Saturday, 7th May 2016.
It was a spectacular presentation very neatly and tightly packed in 100 minutes with rich music and a great message on "Save River Ganga". This presentation is truly a great contibution and education to the people on the need and urgency of a very serious issue. We all know that Ganga is polluted but there is nothing that we are doing as responsible citizens of this country. Here when I write we I am only thinking of my family as there are some people who are continuously making noise for keeping River Ganga Clean.
Photography and Videography was strictly prohibited and hence I do not have any photos or videos from the Programme. However, there is a teaser released by one of the dancers Manasvini which will give you a very brief glimpse of the Programme.
The Hall was packed to full capacity and everyone was mesmerized by the presentation. As a fitting tribute the entire audience gave a standing ovation to the Kala Sadhanalaya Team. There was rich music, excellently synchronized dance, brief narrative with emotion, mimed play behind the white screen and thus a wholesome package. A great treat to the eyes and ears conveying a very strong message but in a very nice, soothing, pleasant manner. The presentation very elegantly showed the glory of the River Ganga with specific emphasis on preserving Her purity and sanctity.
The entire concept was designed and choreographed by Smt.Revathi Ramachandran who performed with the team on the stage. The dancers were Revathi Ramachandran, Aarti Mohan, Anjana Anand, Aparnaa S, Divya Arumugam, K.M.Jayakrishnan, Madhusudhanan, Manasvini Korukkai Ramachandran, L.Nidheesh Kumar, Niyanthri Muthuramalingam, Saindhavi, Sreenath N.R.
The Music Composition was by Lalgudi G.J.R.Krishnan who has really done an exceptionally great job. I wish this album is released by him as a CD for the benefit of music lovers.
I wish this programme is staged several times over the next several years until we see a Clean River Ganga.
Great & Unique Show - Well Presented - Very Pleasing - Touching - Unforgettable Experience.
Thanks a lot to the entire team for presenting such a unique Programme which was a very nice treat to the audience.
