|A Cultural Extravaganza - “Ahan 2012”
Ahan - the first rays of the sun, dawned on NPS, Koramangala in the
year 2003, and the light has continued to shine upon us ever since,
making this the biggest cultural event of the school. This programme
creates a platform for the exhibition of all kinds of talents.
Ahan, 2012 portrayed the incredible vibration of the mystical number 7 as the
theme, titled 'Saptaloka' and was held on two consecutive days- November 8th
and 9th , the pageant delved into the enigmatic domain of numbers to celebrate
the spectacular microcosm of the number7.
The gamut of performances underscored the relevance of the number 7 in
music, dance, topography, literature and mythology. While the little ones of
grade 2 mesmerized the audience with a kaleidoscopic portrayal of Snow White
and the 7 Dwarfs, the riveting performance by Grade 10 students transported
the spectators to the enchanting domain of wizardry through the Harry Potter
series of 7 fantasy novels. The rhythm & pulse of the seven sister states of
North East India was captured through their typical dance forms after which
the audience was regaled by the true essence of the Saptaswaras as embodied
in the elements of nature. However, what really caught the fancy of the crowd
was the spectacle of 7 colours merging miraculously into one another to
craft an impressive arc of goodwill and optimism by the adorable tiny tots from
Grade 1. As a fitting finale and an unabashed tribute to the Great Bard, the
students of Gr. 11 brought to life the bygone characters of the Shakespearean
era. In their presentation they superbly portrayed the seven basic emotions
of life- love, hope, ambition, jealousy, courage, loyalty and justice- that have
endured the test of time.
Speaking on the occasion, Senior Principal Dr. ( Mrs) Bindu Hari lauded the
creativity and talent of the children as well as acknowledged the weeks of hard
work and preparation that went into the making of this scintillating show. In
the words of the Chairman, NPS Group of schools.. 'I would like to thank the
students and the teachers for conceptualising and putting up such a magnificent
show in which each and every child of the school had a role to play. It has
always been our endeavour to nurture the unique talents inherent our students
and provide them with opportunities to display the same'
