It was an event in which children got to express their true emotions, lending a natural touch to a choreographed event.

The centre piece of the proceedings of the 23rd anniversary celebrations of the Madhuram Narayanan Centre for Exceptional Children, dances themed on the glorious rivers of India, was performed by children of the centre along with their mothers. While the parents were keen on following their step, it was the children who brought a natural smile on the audience by straying away and innocently looking at their mothers with curiosity. One such kid who was crying when led on to the stage, observed the dance as it progressed, and was beaming with happiness as it ended.

Dances on various rivers from the Ganges to Thamiraparani were conducted on stage, set to tune by an accompanying vocalist and her troupe, who also explained the spiritual significance of the rivers.

Speaking on the occasion, consultant for the centre, Prof Jeyachandran traced its history, including how it acquired its name. He also spoke on the need for early intervention for persons with disability. The event was also organised as a tribute to its patron, late K S Narayanan.

Chairman of the board of directors of the centre, N Kumar, also spoke.

The event was held at the Bala Mandir German Hall in Prakasam Street, T Nagar.
