Students of The Grove School perform cultural programmes during their Annual Day function held at the Narad Gana Sabha on January 24.

T he students of  The Grove School, Alwarpet, traced the dusty trails of mythology and churned out a plethora of cultural performances  on the theme ‘Lord Krishna’ during their Annual Day function held at the Narada Gana Sabha on January 24.

From the eloquent dance recital on the travails faced by Krishna’s parents, imprisoned by the tyrant ruler Kamsa, to an English play that captured the rustic essence of Vrindavan, the budding actors set the stage for an entertaining evening from the very beginning.

The adorable antics of Krishna and his group of friends during their growing years, and the graceful footwork of the wistful gopikas earned well-deserved appreciation from the audience. The students who enacted the emphatic scene where Krishna confronts the fiery snake Kalinga, floored the spectators with their brilliant expressions and synchronised moves that turned out to be the highlight of the day.

The vibrant villupattu sequence painted the different facets of Krishna the warrior and cleverly used humour and musical interjections to narrate the protagonist’s adventures, while the dandiya performance by the little Krishnas and Radhas enhanced the colourful setting.

The programme was presided over by former Chief Election Commissioner of India N Gopalaswami.
