'Unwinding Times', a two-day annual theatre festival of the Spring Blossoms School, Amritsar, was inaugurated by deputy commissioner Ravi Bhagat at Spring Dale Senior School on Saturday.
Students in the age group of 3 to 6 years presented a colourful and spectacular event and transported the awe-struck audience into the magnificent times of the Mughal era. The theme of the show had been chosen to inculcate moral values and virtues among children and to imbibe the invaluable life skills reflected from our glorious heritage in them.
Employing the medium of music, dance and drama, the students portrayed the lifestyles of the people of the Mughal period. The dazzling costumes and elaborate props reflected the grandeur of the times.
"The famous and witty tales of Akbar and Birbal were unfolded at the event which was a wonderful experience", says Ravi Bhagat who was all praise for the chidrens' talent. "Akbar and Birbal stories are an integral part of our rich heritage. These are the most important stories which impart moral values and virtues.The children did a good job and connected well with their heritage through creative and performing arts."
Principal Anupama Mehra said, "This show, which was indeed a unique blend of our splendid past and progressive present, gelled smoothly with ethics and principles needed by human race for all times to come. What we need today is a civilised society of well-groomed citizens with deep convictions about human rights, a society where everyone contributes fruitfully to the global community".
