Annual Day

The thrill of being in a different era, the era of the Peshawas, or so it seems from the expression on this boy’s face. 

These children were taking part in a dance show and it’s a first time that they are on stage. 

Three dressed up for three plays, all from different era 

It was good to see the kids tying their own ghungroo and getting ready for the dance  

I saw the Lezim performed by this group at three different places, (twice in Mumbai and once in Pune) but the best coordinated movement was here on stage at the Annual Day function.

Sharing the water bottle while waiting for their call.

This little guy captured everyone’s heart with his depiction of Raj Kapoor’s  song Mera Joota Hai Japani

There was this little girl who had to spin round and round holding the dia (lamp) in her hands. After the spin, she was feeling giddy and everyone thought she would fall, but she stood her ground and was steady till the curtains closed. Here she is doing another skit to the tune of “ata majhi satakli”

The school ensured that all the 43 students were on the stage doing something or the other as per their capacity. Liked the idea of the seniors giving a helping hand wherever required.    

Each one gave their best and the parents were thrilled to see this new avataar of their kids.

They seem lack self consciousness, not a bad thing for performing. It is great that they have a chance to perform.

A lot of talent there it seems. I never know how anyone manages to spin around and not get dizzy but some professional dancers seem to do it a lot. I have always wondered how.

These pictures are so cute. And children performing on stage is always been such a beauty to visit!

It's always wonderful to see children given the opportunity to express themselves. They are our future, aren't they!

Glad they all enjoyed it - and the parents too! I liked the photographs, great costumes. Thank you. Love love, Andrew. Bye.

How wonderful that they were all included. Love that. The costumes too are fab as must have been the performances.
