REVIVING GLORIOUS INDIAN TRADITIONS … LEZIM GROUPS DELIGHT!

WADALA- MUMBAI, OCTOBER  18, 2012 :   Discipline, dance, design – this sums up the F/N interschool lezim competition hosted by St. Joseph’s High School, Wadala on October 16, 2012.  Dressed in traditional attractive outfits and armed with creative props, the participants from Nineteen schools converged on the school grounds for the lezim festival.  A sea of enthusiastic followers, supporters, students and teachers, and an array of vibrant colours greeted the eye.

 

A grand welcome was accorded to all present by Mrs. Sangita, our secondary supervisor, while young Cleon Braganza emceed the ceremony.  The judges for the competition, Dr. Kailash Kadu and Mr. Rohan Chauhan, were greeted with floral bouquets before the commencement of the competition. Then in marched the energetic troupes from the different schools to the beats of drums and the clanging of cymbals. They danced, they marched, they grouped (and regrouped) effortlessly to form intricate breathtaking designs and display amazing stunts. There were disciplined routine drills, thematic exercises, well thought out entries and exits, and energetic dances with the lezims.  It was a moment when the glorious Indian tradition came alive!

 

Mr. Raj, Mr. Tony and Mr. Avinash worked tirelessly to effect a smooth program. They received great support from the past pupils Malcolm, Mayur and Nitin who braved the hot sun to oversee the discipline and the coordination of the program.  The wonderful spirit of togetherness and healthy competition among the participating school students was acknowledged at the vote of thanks by the headmistress, Ms. Nicole Britto.  Indeed a glorious day for schools and the Indian culture!
