The Sai Youth in association with the State Alumni enacted a Dance Drama entitled ‘Neti Karthavyam’, this penultimate evening of the ongoing Andhra Pradesh-Telengana Parthi Yathra here, in Prasanthi Nilayam today. The session also featured an enthralling 'straight-from-the-heart' speech by Sri Dinkar Kadam, an alumnus of SSSIHL.
The session commenced at 1650 hrs with Sri Kadam's speech, in a mix of English and Telugu.
Transporting the audience to the incomparable-nostalgic-golden past of early nineties, the rollicking students' days with Bhagawan, the speaker narrated some of his most beautiful experiences as a student, at Bhagawan's Lotus Feet.
"Ask... will be given", said Sri Kadam, narrating how, he, as a student, successfully reaped the best under His Feet, often watching Bhagawan from close quarters. History will remember the 'White Army' of Students and Sevadals, he said in a tone of conviction, quoting Bhagawan's voice of 'commitment' - from one of the private interviews - that, 'if you do the work the way I want, I will do your work in My way."
The drama presentation “Neti Karthavyam” followed next.
Kali Purusha, while being resurgently dutiful, is wrecking havoc, wielding his hallucinating influence upon the mankind. Men of today, under the Kali siege, are being enslaved by the six vices, Kama, Krodha, Lobha, Moha, Mada and Matsarya, trending downward, facing deep peril. How Mission Sathya Sai is serving and saving the mankind, lifting it to the Sai Path vide many spiritual and service activities, formed the content for the fifty minute drama presentation this evening.
The presentation in two ‘repeating’ alternating scenes, with Kali stoically pursuing his might, while on the other hand, the wise men discuss and interpret the Sai Way of tackling the Kali influence, weeding out the six vices, depicted the present day plight of the man, the reality of the day, most beautifully and convincingly. The final scene brought the Sai Youth in action, bursting into celebrations, singing and dancing ‘Jai Vijayee Bhava…’.
The presentation summarizes that Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Avatar does not end with His physical departure… and His Mission is on…
Bhajans next ended with Bhagawan singing an alluring ‘Chitta Chora Yasoda Ke Bal…’. Mangala Arathi at 1820 hrs marked the end of the proceedings.
