THE HEMANT UTSAV - 2012
“When there is righteousness in the heart then there is harmony at home. When there is harmony at home, then only there is peace in the society. When there is peace in the society there is order all over the nation. That is important, the righteousness of every heart, of every individual.” said, ‘Bhagwan Sri Satya Sai Baba’. This was was explained by the Director / Founder Principal, Mr.Vinayak Kalletla, in his homage to Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba during the Hemanth Utsav 2012.
The school celebrated the much awaited Hemanth Utsav at the famous venue Shilpaka Vedika, High tech city, Hyderabad, in a traditional way that befits the splendor of the Makar Sankranti festival.
The strength behind our success is unity. Team Abhyasa pools its resources and moves ahead despite hurdles. Like a beacon, the Director / Founder Principal of the school guides the team with effective planning and training. The various in-charges, the teachers, the students and the admin staff worked patiently during practice sessions and the umpteen number of rehearsals.
On 14th January 2012, the day of the event, the whole school started early at 7 am and reached the venue, Shilpakala Vedika around 9.30 am. The Kitchen staff supplied every one packed breakfast cases, which was very convenient to carry. They also collected the used bags and disposed them appropriately, thus avoiding litter on the roads. A run through session was conducted to make the students get acclimatized to their show in the evening. After a decent lunch, all the students went on for appropriate make up as per their character.
The Chief Guests, Guests of Honor, Founders and The Board of Governors were welcomed and seated with due respect and they were received with traditional Nadaswaram.. Mr. Prabhakar welcomed everyone in his welcome speech.
As per tradition, the event started with the Vedic Chanting followed by the lighting of the lamp. The Director / Founder-Principal, Mr. Vinayak Kalletla escorted the chief guest Mr. Kodi Ramakrishna and the dignitaries Mr. Rangadas, Mrs. Padmavati, Mr. C.V. Anand, Mrs. Umarama Rao, Mr. Prabhakar, Mrs Jamuna, Mr. Pattbhiram, and Mr. Neeladri Rao to light the lamp and declared the Hemanth Uthsav celebrations open!
After lighting the lamp, the Director and Founder-Principal paid homage to Bhagwan Sri Satya Sai Baba. As a tribute to his services, himself a devotee of the Baba, the Director / Founder Principal Vinayak Kalletla introduced free education in the school for class 1, for 14 beneficiaries. The new little students chanted Saraswathi Vandana and a sloka on good character and thus amazed the audience and proved that Abhyasa’s actions speak louder than words.
During Makar Sankranthi , as a part of our tradition, every Hindu house hold decorates a corner of the house with dolls of Gods and Goddesses. The audience got a spectacular surprise when they saw live statues of Gods and Goddesses standing as a back drop, in the rear end of the stage. Surprisingly enough their conversation became a link for the dances and the skits. These Demi Gods of Dwapar Yugh and Treta Yugh were astonished to see the degradation of human values, which were depicted through various skits. Like a movie the program continued holding the audience glued to their seats for a long three and a half hour session.
Dressed in the most traditional and colorful attire, girls of classes IV to VII performed the invocation dance. The spectacular show won the hearts of the audience with its unique grace and melody. The song which praises Goddess Sree Raja Rajeswari enthralled the audiences as the kids of classes 4 to 7 did their best in Bharata Natyam. It was a stunning performance by the kids with great perfection and discipline.
This was followed by the Hindi play - Kutte ki dhum tedi ki tedi, which was a comedy that depicted the lethargy of beggars. An Idle Mind is a devil’s workshop was the theme of the play. In a comical way, the students show cased the mentality of beggars; the need of the hour for them is reformation for better thinking.
The Telugu play – Kuti Kosam Koti Vidyalu showed the various immoral methods adopted by certain human beings in order to survive and make money which was a full length comedy and the audience could not resist clapping!
Later, the floor was open for the medal presentations to ICSE and ISC toppers of the academic year 2010-2011. The Chief Patrons Sri Rangadas Kalletla and Smt. Padmavathi Kalletla have instituted Excellence in Academics medals to overall toppers at the ICSE and ISC Exams and also to the Girl Topper at the ICSE and ISC Examinations, in memory of their parents. Even other medals which were instituted by Mrs.Murthy, the In-Charge Principal and others were given to the students who excelled in their academics. As a tribute to the Divine Master Bhagwan Sri Satya Sai Baba, the school released the first volume of Akshaya News letter for the academic year 2011. This was followed by a speech by Mr. Jonnavithula Rama Lingeswara Rao - a famous film lyric writer and Smt. Uma Rama Rao, the veteran dance guru. Both of them praised the Abhyasites for their uniqueness and the way students are groomed on the campus.
The multi lingual play, Agar Anna… is a play that circles around contemporary issues. It is a play inspired from the real life happenings in the recent past in which veteran Gandhian and anti- corruption crusader; Anna Hazare has captured the attention of Indians across the globe over the issue of the Lokpal Bill. Hazare, a Gandhian by belief, outlook and practice has become the face of India’s fight against corruption and his fast can be described as the first real ‘Social Networking Movement’ in India. But is it enough – “Is one Anna Hazare sufficient to take on the giant of corruption? Will India ever be corruption free? The play raises such relevant questions and more?” which have been haunting the minds of all the Indians and Agar Anna stood as an answer for all these questions. The drama talked about the corruption that happens in each and every home, at every place and with every individual. It ends with a note that until and unless the individual changes nothing can happen to remove corruption at any level. The audience could not resist clapping after the drama got over for the excellent performance of the students.
The hall reverberated with the nostalgic song Vande Mataram and pulled the heart strings of each and every one present while the high school students moved in rhythm to the tune. The performers were attired in the national flag colors. The spectacular tri color of the Indian flag waved on through various formations. It was a grand treat to the eyes and the music was a melody to the ears.
The Chief Guest Sri Kodi Ramakrishna and Guest of Honour Sri C.V. Anand were moved by the performance of the students. The Chief Guest in his address mentioned his happiness and appreciated the staff and students of Abhyasa for putting up such a spectacular show. He praised Mr. Vinayak’s ideology and thanked him for keeping the traditions alive through Abhyasa. He also praised the versatility of Mr. Vinayak and looked forward to his excellence as an upcoming director.
All the teachers who had worked hard for the event were felicitated on the dais. The Principal congratulated the students, teachers and the School Administration Team for executing the event meticulously and making it a grand success.
Thanks to all the stakeholders who made the event a grand success. The Hemanth Utsav once again proved that the Team Abhyasa always works relentlessly in creating individuals who work in harmony towards excellence.
Wish you all a happy Makar Sankranthi...
