This afternoon’s ladies program included Kutch & Africa
Kutch and Africa ladies kicked off the third afternoon of Shibir performances with fantastic drama and dance performances to a packed Auditorium. From the beginning there was a tangible mood of anticipation and celebration.
Kutch started with a drama performance set in the time of Jeevanpran Bapashree. A young girl married into a non-satsangi family which changed her life forever. Sharing the experience from a female lens, they showed the various challenges she faced as a result and the impact on her life.
They then ended with a rousing Indian patriotic dance. Finishing in a formation of the number 50 in the colours of orange, white and green as a tribute to Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Suvarna Mahotsav, and to our Motherland India.
Kenya began the second half of the show with a prarthna and impressive classical Bharatnatyam dance. They presented a drama showing how our inner enemies affect our relationship with God and with our families. An important life lesson was conveyed, that being part of the Swaminarayan Gadi Family and receiving the Lord’s love is a most precious gift that needs to be treasured in challenging times and places.
The whole evening ended with an African themed dance fused with classical Indian dancing to a rapturous and cheering audience!
When we come together to please Lord Shree Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa in this way, it truly is a privilege to experience.
