DRAMA BY STUDENTS OF SRI SATHYA SAI HIGHER SECONDARY SCHOOL
Ram Naam and Ram Karya, Rama's Name and Rama's Work are important to win God's grace was the message by Sri Sathya Sai Higher Secondary School, Prasanthi Nilayam this evening when they offered a most spectacular Dance Drama entitled 'Prem Ki Pukaar' herein Prasanthi Nilayam today.
After the spectacular Sports & Cultural Meet yesterday, cultural festival is to continue. This evening, taking their turn, blossoming talents from the Sri Sathya Sai Higher Secondary School offered a most scintillating Dance Drama airing the theme of Love For God, Surrender, Faith and Service to God.
Revolving around the story of a group of pilgrims, who met at Shivapuram, the temple city, the drama takes an interesting turn with each member in the team, all in the crossroads of their spiritual lives, gets the right direction through greater spiritual awareness only to finally realise that Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba is the Lord of all Lords. The storyline with many flashbacks had the finer life qualities in display, namely, Etrenal Service, Surrender, Inspiration, Worship, Faith etc. guiding each member of the touring party bailing them out of their confused state of mind.
Why and what is the significance of Idol worship?... Why, after taking His Name for quite long time Lord does not appear?... How Surrender works miracles in life?... were some of the intriguing questions some of the touring party members who met at Shivapuram had... and each one of them gets their answer with the help of the senior most and most experienced in the group Prem Sagar. The Story of Vibheeshana who gets the service of Eternal Service from Hanuman, at Lanka, the story of the Court Singer who fell at the Feet of Lord Shiva pleading his inadequacy to match with the popular singer's class who called him for a dual, The Story of Vivekananda at Mewar King's darbar teaching the king of the greater importance of Idol worship etc. were shown through various flashback scenes.
The drama finally takes a complete dramatic turn when the veteran Prem Sagar who preached all along great wisdom turned emotional narrating his own story. Being a cancer patient at his final stage, Prem, quite contented and who has always been engaged in Lord's service, feels disappointed that he did not get enough time at the service of His Lord. At this juncture, the fruit vendor, a common face at Shivapuram approaches him playfully with a small photograph a missing boy... Prem immediately recognises the boy to be his long lost son who, was the Vikram in the touring group.
Even as an emotional Vikram reunites with his father, Prem, who has just about a month to survive turns emotional that he will not be available for his long lost son. Wondering at the cruel play of the Lord even as Prem turns introspective, the fruit vendor returns again playing his playful pranks at Prem and others. Upon hearing about his sad story of Cancer with one month time, the fruit vendor happily gives him an apple, rubbing his chest, saying, Cancer Is Cancelled.
It was God Himself Who came in the diguise of the fruit vendor proving that for the 0ne who is engaged in His service oriented worship God can never be away. The presentation ended with a final group song singing Sai's Glory.
