Young India steals show

 Government School (Agara) students presenting Samskruti-Bharati, a dance performance. Joining them were para-motor gliders and Tornadoes whose dare-devilry act wowed the audience.

Over 2,700 students from different schools in and around Bangalore performed depicting the mosaic of Indian culture and unity in diversity. The performance “Mahayatra” by more than 700 children, attired in colourful costumes, from the St Teresa Primary and High School and Triveni Public School, Bangalore showcased Indian cultural heritage. The audience were taken on a journey of evolution of music and dance.

The spectators were treated to folk art - Dollu Kunitha, Yakshagana and Kamsale; apart from Mohiniattam, Bharathanatyam and a robust folk melody from Andhra Pradesh.

The parade ground represented a ocean of colour as over 750 students from
Government High School Agara, brought alive the cultural diversity of Karnataka. “Voice of Youth”, by 750 students of Santhikethana Primary and High School, BTM Layout and Bilekalhalli spread a message that youth must stride in the path of peace, sacrifice and truth imbibing a sense of belongingness and love for their mother land.

The motorcycle display by Tornadoes, the team that holds four world records was awe-inspiring. The riders on their Royal Enfield motorcycles pierced through a wall of tubelight, sneaked through an iron ring, which was on fire. Eighteen members of Tornadoes performed dare-devilry acts like ‘scissor cross’ and the ‘parallel crossing’ where the riders in two groups sped, crossing each other’s paths. 

Earlier, the formal ceremony began with the Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa arriving at the saluting base to preside over the celebrations. The smart marching contingents of the para-military, police and student corps attired in their ceremonial best added a dash of colour to the parade.

The spectators were also treated to para-motor gliding display.
