She also thanked Mrs. Carolyn Passey and acknowledged her dedication and perseverance to the success of the Youth Group.

The program began with Bhajans sang by the children under the superb guidance of Mrs. Neelima Chaturvedi. Then it went on to dances performed by children of all ages. Everyone did so well that it is difficult to take one item apart from the others. They dazzled the audience with colorful costumes and fine jewelry. There were all kinds of dances starting from hip hop to traditional Indian folk dances and the children performed with a lot of charisma and sophistication. After the intermission the children of Raganjali School of music enchanted the audience with some classical based songs. Among the dance choreographers were Jasmine Shah, Darshana Jani, Mitali Biswas, Bhavana Srivastava, Sreyashi Kanjilal, Shwaita Jain, Sapna Krishnan, Harini Murthy, Karishma Navani.

All the dances were excellent. Towards the end of the program was the dance “Rangeela Ruth Aayo hamaro Gaon mein” choreographed by Mitali Biswas. It was vibrant dance and the performers brought out the spirit of Spring with their colorful costumes and fantastic dance performance. Mitali Biswas is a Freshman at the University of Massachusetts and as Shweta Athilat said they really worked hard to put together this dance item.

The MC’s in the first half were Aurnab Bando, Anu Garg, Nitya Durvasula & Shivani Jain and for the second half they were Sumeera Gupta, Puja Mehta, Esha Bawa & Nikhil Shah. It goes without saying that they did a fantastic job. In short, we came out of the auditorium with a lot of pride in our youth group.
