When high-spirited young musicians and dancers took to the stage, the evening became memorable. A spectacular and colourful concert ‘Gift to Russia’ thus marked the Day of Russia at the Russian Centre of Science and Culture (RCS

C), recently.

With the aim to manifest the love and reverence India has for Russia, the event was jointly organised by RCSC and the Federation of Indo-Russian Youth Clubs.

The evening consisted of two parts. In the first segment of the programme, young people called for a Youth Network Dialogue to develop a platform for youth, where they can express their innovative ideas to enhance their capacities and participatio
n in the society, as well as to stimulate inter-cultural dialogue between India and Russia.
The programme started with a multi-media presentation by the head of the Russian Language Teachers’ Training Centre, RCSC, Tatyana E Perova highlighting the genesis of Russia through historical evolutions chronologically in the erstwhile Russia, the Soviet Union and the present Russian Federation.

This was followed by a quiz on Russia, conducted by Yelena Shtapkina, deputy director, RCSC. The winners of the quiz competition were awarded with Russian souvenirs.

The second part of the programme focused on Indian dance and music presented by Alien Dance Group, and choreographed by Aryan Kumar. The young artistes performed a number of energetic performances on different creative ideas and concepts.

The welcome dance titled ‘Ganapati’, genuinely set the tone for the evening with spiritual and auspicious appeal. This was followed by a contemporary music and song presented by performers dressed in magnificent costumes. Yet another performance made the audience hear to Sufi music with dance composition. The concert was  conducted by a young artist Hina Malik, a social activist from YUVA India

The long cultural programme celebrated at strengthening the long-lasting Indo-Russian peace, friendship and cooperation.
