The showstopper of the event was the Dance Drama ‘The Blind Age’. Based on Dharamvir Bharti’s composition this exuberant medley of dance and drama explored the human capacity for moral actions, reconciliation and goodness in troubled times and revealed what happens when individuals succumb to the cruelty and cynicism. Depicting the eighteenth day of the ancient Sanskrit epic, Mahabharata , which devastated the Kauravas, the students sent the chill down the spine of the spectators with their emphatic dialogue delivery. Donned with colorful costumes and attractive make-up,the characters of the dance drama and their scintillating dance performances stole the hearts of the audience and left them spellbound.
The animated event ended with the vote of thanks proposed by the Vice Principal of the School, Ms. Sarojini Sinha.
The audience took the fond memories of this auspicious occasion along with them, which no doubt would linger in their minds and hearts for a long time.
