ended on World Environment Day 5th June 2010. In Udaipur City the week was celebrated with organizing of Photo and Poster Exhibition
, Cycle Rally
and series of Mini Dramas in street theater style. The Closing Ceremony/Celebration titled as Moryo Acho Bolyo
(Peacock Sounded Well) was held at the auditorium of Railway Training School situated at Sukhadia Circle. The ceremony was like a collection of many cultural programs. First the artist from Maharashtra played “Sundari” A wind instrument which is also known as younger sister of “Shehnai”.
But it is shorter in size than Shehnai. After this was a mind blowing performance by a group of Gujrati Artists. A dancer went on dancing with a blue piece of cloth in hand which he transformed in to a peacock, with a small white cloth he made a pigeon and an another larger cloth was used to make a rabbit while dancing continuously in a style similar to origami no stitches, no rubber bands all done by tying knots and dancing. Remaining crew played music on different instruments. Jagdish Vaishnav
then entertained the audiences with his mimicry. He made different sounds from his mouth like the sound of Shankh (Sea Shell), Sparrows, Pigeon, Peacock, Lion, Elephant, Cow, Dog, Flute, Horse hoof, Steam Engine, New Born Baby, Drums and the tune of folk song Ghoomar. Fourth was the pride presentation by Jewels of Rajasthan renowned folk singers the Mangniyar Brothers who sang stanza’s of famous songs like “Moryo Acho Bolyo”, “Papeeha”, “Gurjaan” and “Koyaldi.”
Mini Drama “Rahiman Pani Rakhiye” was performed by the group of Mr. Vilas Janve
teaching the importance of water in our life and how we all waste this essential resource. If we didn’t acted soon one day it will become a luxury and we will realize the value of a single drop of water when we might be left with a few drops.
Last and most appreciated presentation was a dance performance based on Krishna and Radha by Pandit Morari Lal Sharma from Mathura. This was the most engaging dance performance I have ever seen.
With the message of Environment Conservation by discarding plastic goods, planting of trees and wise use of water the Environment week 2010 ended creating a deep reaching impact in minds and hearts of Udaipurites.
