Aatmabal Programme 2013

Hari Om Dear Friends,

Last night the Aatmabal Programme 2013 came to an end. Words fail me in trying to describe how it was. At the moment, it is beyond any adjectives. All that I can say for myself and on behalf of all those who were present at Shri Harigurugram yesterday is Ambadnya.

No praise would be too high for our dear Nandai, who planned things to the last detail. Bringing together a group of Shraddhavan ladies, many of them elderly, and most of them shy and introverted, and transforming them into achievers and winners, in a matter of just six months, is in itself a great achievement. Every single item that was presented left an indelible mark on the mind. I can say with absolute certainty that there wasn't a single eye that did not shed tears while watching the heart-rending performances put up.

There were three items that appealed to most: (a) “Swagat”  (b) The drama Savadhaan; and (c) The grand finale

This Aatmabal programme also saw some unique styles of presentation, probably never seen before on stage before. In the drama Pagada, there was this scene in which the character appears on the screen, representing a television and therefore moves out of the screen and turns up live on stage.

The grand finale was indeed grand and truly beyond words. One has to see it to understand it.

I shall give more details of the Aatmabal programme very soon.
