As my idea was getting good score in techconnect(IBM competition) I was on cloud 9(Even though I didn't make it to semi finals), got a call from Deepthi to rush to shilpha kala vedika!. I had no mood to leave my TP. But I had no choice, took the print out of the skit which we wanted to act in flagstone day. Where we(Nirmaan volunteers and children from kottaguda government school) requested to show our volunteer activities. We planned(at last) to show a video, dance from children and a skit from volunteers along with students. As usual Deepthi greeted with a smile on her face even though she was tiered. Sandya was damn busy in teaching dance steps to children. Santhi was helping everybody to make everything pakka!! Prathima and Rajesh were still planning for something!!! Children were looking awesome with their dance dress and the godrej baby powder on their face. As usual Mayur looked tensed, but he is the backbone of Nirmaan and busy in coordinating with flagstone COO Krishnan. Between all these Madhuri was looking gorgeous with her reshme Saree..;). As a tradition function started with lightning the lamp by CEO. We were allotted 20 minutes so we completely prepared for 20 minutes. Krishnan said we will get the stage at 6 15 PM. After 15 min mayur came to us and said our performances will be right after the 2 songs, will update you guys like TV9 vartha bla bla bla(some telugu dialogues)..
Finally we got the stage but we were asked to take less time, video and dance went very well children danced like professional dancers. But their was news waiting for me and Balaji(wanted to open his account on stage) that will drop a skit(). Oh god!!! Balaji looked damn disappointed, All other volunteers didn't forget to congratulate and console Bhalaji and me. Students looked like future chiranjeevi or Anushka(only one actress i know in telugu). Hufff but chaiwala was disappointed as he was in skit! I guess he is the only guy missed stage performance! Thanks to Naidu, to prepare for my skit I gave my think pad for safe guarding!
Our students enjoyed like hell, we could see that from their glorious eyes. The special dinner was waiting for us. Even though we didn't perform Krishnan gave us a memento (that made us much more happier). Students were busy in looking at their books given by Krishnan. Srini treated all of us like his own kids. The flagstone made me and our team happier than expected!!! Brought more than million smiles at our students!!!Pics courtesy: Madhuri!!!
