Basically, it bottles down to the fact that, the evening with ‘Rag’ on the 16th of September was more than a welcome relief.
Yeah…we had two songs for the dancers – ‘Thodayamangalam’ (done by the guys) and ‘Enadaro’ done by the girls. Preceding the dance, we had the all veena players (playing in pairs) ‘entertaining’ the audience. The songs that were played included ‘Vathapi’ for an opener, Nandy and niveramesh -'maamavathu' and 'anbenum mozhi',srividya and swarna- ‘Giriraja sudha’ and a ‘thirupugahzh’ in Bhageshree to end the vadhya vrindha. Yeah, btw…that’s the new ‘attraction’ for this semester. Yay! We’re going to have ‘instrumental concerts’ that are going to be called ‘that’. J. It’s going to take off on stage this Saturday! Yay!!
Wait, there’s more to chew about…not over yet! Well, the round of applauses had to come from all corners…prof’s, guests, old bald men (ah..sigh of anguish!...Soumi would agree!).. et all. We kinda made sure that we were entitled to have dinner in ‘VFAST’. Oops… Did I just spill the ‘driving motive’ of the performers??!!! Well, cmon…if there’s something that doesn’t change, doesn’t fade away with time – it defly wud be the ‘enthu’ to go have grub in VFAST!! But then ‘twas quite a long wait to get there..took a while for the dancers to get off their costumes. Without wasting time, the other folks were kept engaged by the juniors! Ah..the bundle of energy that they seem to possess…adorable! My god…we were LOUD, NOISY and what not! Dances for hindi songs (includes Choli ke peeche!), popeye show, close-up ad…all of it was in air. I’d say it again…keep up the spirits…you guys!!! We quickly made time for the ‘club snap’ after the dancers decided to grace us with their appearance. And then…’twas time for the tummy to work! Aha!! Then ‘twas the usual scene that saw all of us pouncing on the food and then settling for a hearty lacha session in the lawns.
On the whole, it was a very typical musical, colorful and vibrant performance from
‘Rag’. Yeah, personally, to take a critical stand…it stands no where to our usual performances…a lot of ‘goof-ups’, patching up, lack of co-ordination and all that, still defly would be rated as a lovely treat to the audience.
Ah! So well be life!!! Beaming smile
Well, we are working in full swing for NR and praying hard that turns out to be a success. The practice sessions are going in full swing and the dancers have been doing a wonderful job so far- cheers to you guys!
