Prasanthi News – Vinayaka Chathurthi evening Programme – Dance Drama by Puttaparthi Bala Vikas..
How the little lad born in a tiny remote hamlet in Andhra Pradesh went on becoming the Beacon Light ‘Sathya’ of the world was depicted by the local Balvikas children in a presentation entitled ‘Parthi Parijatalu’ this evening here in Prasanthi Nilayam.
The presentation was based on the story of two youngsters, who were sceptical towards Bhagawan and His Divinity. As their doubting minds needed touch of evidence before accepting Bhagawan as the Avatar of the Age, the youth were taken to a ‘guided tour’ by experienced devotees narrating tales of glory of His Avatarhood and Divine Mission, as experienced by them. Some of the episodes shown were: the story of cholera epidermic being kept away by the Pandari Bhajans led by little Sathya, the episode showing grandfather Kondama Raju hearing ‘Omkara’ from little Sathya’s breath, Bhagawan curing Himself of the paralytic stroke, etc.
The presentation had beautiful interludes of song and dance sequences, heralding the glory of Sri Sathya Sai Avatar. This is the maiden cultural presentation by the Balvikas of Puttaparthi that had its inception several years ago. Hundred children from in and around the village participated in the presentation.
The presentation ended with the children along with elders taking a vow that they would dedicate themselves to the Mission of spreading Bhagawan’s message of Love and Service.
At the end of the presentation all participating children were presented with special gifts. Even as Bhajans continued children formed into disciplined rows posing for photograph session at the Sanctum Sanctorum.
Mangala Arathi was offered at 1815 hrs.
Tomorrow, students from Sri Sathya Sai Vidya Vihar, Moosapet, Hyderabad will be presenting a cultural presentation in the evening in Sai Kulwant Hall.
