Mon, Sep 20, 2010: Spirit of Sai Students is divinely infused and thus refuses to cave in to sleep. "My Property" as Bhagawan calls them with 'pride', these students reciprocate every bit of this "Divine Honour" pushing themselves to do the best, upholding the high esteem of the hallowed alma mater run from Prasanthi Nilayam.
Despite being busy with academics, as "preparatory days" are on for the ensuing mid-semester exams that are coming up next week a talented bunch of students from the Institute offered a musical bouquet, entitled "Voice of Unity" on the evening of 20th September in the immediate Divine presence.
Commencing the programme with an introduction on the salient features of the esteemed institute, the programme got off with a carnatic piece of Saint Thyagaraja, "Ramanannu Brovara...", rendered with professional touch. Celebrating the "Spirit of Bharat", the next item was a dance on the theme "Mera Bharat Mahan..." that was followed by an instrumental piece tuned in line with Pt. Ronu Majumdar’s original version. Interspersed in the piece were short commentaries in various languages echoing the importance of national integration.
The Glory and uniqueness of Prasanthi Nilayam, invoking one and all unto the land of peace, the students burst open with the popular qawwali, "Sai Ke Durbar Mein..." finally winding up the 45 minutes session with the popular " Song of Love for The Divine", "Hum Ko Thumse Pyaar Kithna....".
Electrifying the evening, airing lofty themes of national integration, hailing the alma mater, this reservoir of great talent and devotion, dedicated the presentation to their Divine Chancellor in presence of a visiting NAAC Team (National Assessment and Accreditation Council), an autonomous institution established by the University Grants Commission (UGC).
Accepting Arathi Bhagawan left the dais at 1955 hrs. after asking for an encore of "Samatha Lokaah...". With His usual wont of benedictions, Bhagawan moved on gliding into the ladies' side, bringing the curtains down on a beautiful Monday evening.
