Indian Republic Day Marked at RCSC, New Delhi

Friday, 08 February 2013 04:14

The Day of Indian Republic was celebrated by the Russian Centre of Science and Culture (RCSC), jointly with the Federation of Indo-Russian Youth Clubs, at 24, Ferozeshah Road, New Delhi, on January 27, 2013.

The participants of the programme comprised students from the Russian Embassy Secondary School, Nrithyam Dance & Cultural Society (guided by Guru Mrs. Padma Sampat Kumaran, recipient of the Russian State Award—Pushkin’s Medal), Remal Public School, Pitampura, Happy Dance Academy and the Greenways Modern School, Dilshad Garden.

Mrs. Purnima Anand, General Secretary, Federation of Indo-Russian Youth Clubs, Deputy Directors of the RCSC in New Delhi Mr. Andrei Andreev and Yelena Shtapkina, Dr. Sobha Vijayendra Gupta, President, Sampoorna NGO, and Dr. Nand Kishore Garg, Chairman, Maharaja Aggrasen Institute of Technology & Management Studies, attended the function.

The items “Walts” and “Winter Fairy Tale”, performed by students of the Russian Embassy School, distinctly attracted the keen attention of the audience for the element of European style choreographic perfection and artistic mood contained in them. This was followed by a spectacular Indian classical dance, presented by the disciples of Guru Padma Sampat Kumaran, viz: Tripti, Shilpi and Rusika.

The items—“Pushpanjali” and “Thillala”---had been specially earmarked for the superb costumes of the artists as well as the melody of the accompanying Karnatic songs. 

The dynamic feature of the Rajasthani Dance, offered by students of the Remal Public School, truly reflected the genuine tradition of Rajasthan.

For a moment, breaking away from the enthusiastic dance numbers, the audience was taken to the comfort of songs rendered by girls from the Russian Embassy School. In the process, Varvala Ariaeva, who song “Angel”, and Liya Bogatskaya and Yagmurova Aisha, who sang “The Blowing Snow”, took the audience to a world of imagination.

Students from the Happy Dance Academy proved successful in creating an atmosphere of patriotism. And they accomplished the task through the song & dance compositions “Vande Mataram”, “Chak De India—Jai Ho”, “Suno Gaur Se Duniya Walo” (choreographed, based on Oscar-winner A.R. Rahman’s song), and the song rendered by famous TV-Radio anchor Omi Singh (adapted from Manok Kumar’s film). The patriotic dance composition, a fusion of modern and traditional music, choreographed by Ashok Kumare, proved to be uniquely vibrant. The last episode was performed by students of the Greenways Modern School, namely, “Raag Rang”, comprising vocal singing followed by a patriotic song, definitely did have a   soothing effect.

The Russian and Indian students who participated in the concert were felicitated by the Hon. Guests.
