Delhi Public School, Sector 84 organised an enthralling Annual Talent Show ‘VIBGYOR’, by the students of Grades III to VIII, on 1st December, 2018. It was heartening to see the hard work, perseverance and determination of the students culminate into a grand show, displaying an ocean of their hidden talents, of a very high order.

The event featured glimpses of Indian folk and tribal dances from the lesser known states of India. The main reason behind organizing the event was to nurture the intrinsic qualities of the students and remove the fear of stage amongst them. They were seen in colourful dresses, full of confidence and enthusiasm prior to their performances.

The event commenced with a floral welcome to our honoured guest, Ms. Meneka Paul Lakhanpal, followed by lamp lighting and rendition of Ganesh Vandana. Our school principal, Ms Neelu Sharma, addressed the guests and formally opened the event. Group singing by the School Choir, captivated the audience, by presenting a medley of songs in five regional languages. Himachali folk dance on their local music, highlighted the cultural identity of the state. Out of the innumerable folk dances and forms encountered in Goa, the legendary fishermen dance and traditional Goan Carnival folk dance were remarkable performances, which very vividly highlighted Goan tradition of thousands of years. The main attraction of the show was Shiv Tandav dance, depicting anger, passion and intense energy, describing Shiva’s power and beauty. The dance was performed by the boys, as a symbol to highlight its significance at the time of wars, using the same as self-defence and to strengthen the warriors of the tribe. The Adivasi or Jharkhand tribal dance was quite aesthetic, encompassing, the culture, traditions and folk lore of the state. The most vibrant and rhythmic dance forms of India, The Cheraw Kan or Bamboo Dance of Nagaland, was another mesmerizing performance by the students.

The event culminated with a Grand Finale, with all the participants coming up on the stage and dancing on the tune of ‘Vande Mataram’. It was finally rounded off with a Vote of Thanks by the School Coordinator, Ms. Archana Panicker. The show was well appreciated by the parents.
