It’s A Bird, It’s A Plane: It Is A SuperMom

Eshani Shah

The idea of having a competition for MOMS has been playing in my mind since I saw a similar competition on Zee TV last year. Also,  I love dancing and at weddings and parties I am in company of a lot of mothers who love dancing.

So GURJAR announced the competition at the end of last year calling it SUPER MOM dance competition. GURJAR completed 35 years last year so this year we wanted to do some special programs to celebrate the success as well make sure that our name is still out there.

The competition was divided in 3 categories, solo, group and Duo (mother and daughter or son) and 2 age groups. We had an amazing response from mothers. The talent, creativity, energy and effort was incomparable. The participation ranged from young mothers to grandmothers. We invited out of town judges so that it would be a fair competition. The judges were: Arsh Mehrotra from MA, Mahi Arora, Mamta Patel and Manjusha Sheabourn from CT, and Nisha Lakhani from New York.

The Duo category was the most popular and I have received a few calls/emails from Moms whose daughters are now ready to dance. So we are already finalizing the date and venue for next year and will be announcing it soon. The audience response on social networks, emails, texts was also very encouraging and positive... magnificent, wow, amazing, and one of the best events were some of the quotes.

I also want to thank DJ YOGZ who spent countless hours working with moms to get their music and ensuring it was of good quality.  The lighting demands were huge and he was very supportive saying "Don't worry we will make it happen." Thanks to Dr. Sheth, who not only agreed to open the show but really helped with the flow of the event. Thanks! to all the sponsors, media partners and ofcourse the audience who cheered the Moms..

GURJAR is glad to be the pioneer of this first time ever in NE Super MOM competition. It was a team effort...visit www.gurjar.org for our regular updates..
