MGS is well known for grooming and nurturing young local talent for the last four decades and this event was yet another effort in this direction, where the entire programme was developed and delivered by a group of young, enthusiastic and passionate singers, dancers and anchors.
Right from the welcome address at the start to the vote of thanks in the end, the entire event was managed by young children in the age group of 8 to 18 years, who collectively delivered an impeccable, spellbinding performance. The guest of honour for the event was Padma Shri Anandji Shah and H E Indra Mani Pandey, India's Ambassador to Oman, was the chief guest.
The event marked the celebrations of India’s 71st Independence Day and was conceptualised around recreating the various musical moods of the famous music composer duo, Kalyanji Anandji. The anchoring aptly covered the fine life aspects and interesting details of Kalyanji Anandji and drew praise from the audience right from the beginning.
The anchoring piece was flawlessly handled by the trio of Manya Talati, Isha Jobanoutra and Dharmik Maniyar, all of whom have undergone training in the Toastmasters Youth Leadership Programme, organised by MGS earlier this year and they were proficiently trained by Manoj Ranade of MGS.
The singers cast a mesmerising spell over the entire audience with their magical and melodious voices and started off with happy mood songs followed by romantic songs and so on. The singers who participated were Sunidhi Bhatt, Divya Kabad, Saakshi Bhagvath, Mahadev Sudin, Sathvik Sheshadri and Sreerag Menon.
Some of the songs were complimented with live dances by a group of 21 children, with dance steps matching the original song sequence to the best extent
