Audience at the Rangayana on Wednesday had a great time witnessing the charismatic performances by tiny tots and specially-abled children who displayed their dancing skills to the best, only to mesmerize the onlookers and leave them spell-bound.
The little performers received a huge appreciation by the guests and audience as evident by never-stopping applauses at the end of each performance at the Children’s Day celebration organised by District Administration, Department of Women and Child Welfare and District Child Protection Unit.
Internationally acclaimed Yoga practitioner Khushi – a class 8 student of St. Joseph’s Central School – who had won several prizes at both national and International levels stole the show by performing various yogasanas.
Another highlight of the programme was a dance from the students of Deaf and Dumb school who, overcoming all the odds, performed so wonderfully that the dance never seemed to have performed by specially-abled children.
On the occasion, Kavya, Danush, Khushi H, Naina Nagaraj, Moulya Venkatesh, Harshita T, M S Arjun, Vayu Singh and Shamit Gowda, students various schools who had excelled in various fields in the district level were felicitated.
