Tamil New Year in Prasanthi Nilayam…

Celebrating Tamil New Year – Jaya, connoting Victory, Sai Youth from the State of Tamil Nadu presented a drama entitled ‘Sai World Vision’ last evening here in Prasanthi Nilayam.

Earlier the programme commenced with a stimulating speech by one of the alumni of Sri Sathya Sai Institute Of Higher Learning, Sri Bala Ramachandran, who presented his thoughts interspersed with beautiful incidents from His Story. An accomplished bhajan singer, Sri Bala Ramachandran began with a beautiful aalaap of one his favourite bhajans connecting it well with unbouned relationship between Bhagawan and His devotees. Lamenting at his inability to see Swami when His form is absent in the physical sense, connecting famous ‘camera’ story from Kasturi Ji’s book ‘Loving God’, Sri Bala Ramachandran asserted that ‘no chair is empty’ and Swami is present everywhere.

Next to come was an invocation dance cum song presentation in Tamil by the Balvikas children from the State.

The drama SAI WORLD VISION was a depiction of the yeomen service being rendered by the Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisations serving humanity, following the teachings and  tenets of Beloved Bhagawan. The drama presented the story of the protagonist Venkat, a journalist by profession, who incidentally bumped into a group of Sai Youth while covering a bomb blast, thus sowing the seeds of transformation.

Constantly surrounded by negative news, Venkat was frustrated with the way things were on and had been yearning to experience something positive. This was when he accidentally met up with the Sai Youth group from Sri Sathya Sai Seva Oragnisations. Enamoured by the rare beauty of the unique service rendered by the Organisation,Venkat, when challenged by his boss for his attempt to cover the Sai Organisation as a special feature story, did not hesitate to quit his job only to make an individual attempt to come up with a documentary. Feeling a greater urge from within to spread the good news to the world at large, Venkat successfully completed his documentary, ‘Pillars Of Societal Change’, the story of Sathya Sai Seva Organisation that brings individual transformation followed by societal transformation.

Bhajans continued and ended with Mangala Arathi at 1920 hrs.
