Dear Ashok Uncle & Sarasa Aunty
I must admit that this Kids Fest is a big leap from all the previous version which I’ve been blessed to witness so far at BMIS.
The meticulous efforts of the team was evident in all aspects of the program from the canopied hall, to the assortments of programs/languages to quality of re-recording and to the content itself. It was one of the astounding show of synergies between various functions which were involved in making this stupendous work of art.
Want to take a moment to list few of the ‘Key’ stand-outs:
- A near anchorless program which was segued by preceeding characters (Kattabomman to Saveur de France was class apart)
- While the overall BGM was very soothening, pieces such as ‘Mangal Pavan’ from Ramanad Sagar’s classic made millennials like me nostalgic
- A perfect orchestration of dance, drama and music with right sense of timing made this fest a package with no fading moment
- The down-stage screens were an added advantage for the rear audience, making them more connected than ever before (heard from Dhruva that the facility was extended to the green room too – Digital Disruption!)
- There was a definite take-away from most of the programs – Always been the highlight at our BMIS Kids Fests:
- Kattabomman: An ever-green classic oozing with patriotism!
- Saveur de France: A window into the cultural landscape of France
- The Chocolate Factory: What a way to imbibe values through a Bookvie!
- Last but not the least, even the chief guest was at her best – one with selective, but best choice of words and wisdom to budding parents like me
On the face value, I was swept off my feet by the enthralling performance of the little stars. I once again take this opportunity to thank both of you for your tireless efforts in nurturing the future of our kids.
Looking forward to many such extravaganzas in future!
Thanks and Regards
