16th Year “Bala Vidhwan Bavani” , from Sumukhi Foundation

 The Mylapore Trio – Amarnath, Surendranath, Aparna and Sugathan, (Cultural Ambassadors of Mylapore and Kalakshetra Alumni) & Members of Sri Sumukhi Rajasekharan Memorial Foundation conducted the 16th “BALA VIDHWAN BAVANI” on Monday, 1st January, 2018 from 6.00am to 8.00am. Nearly 50 Children, Parents and the Members of the Foundation, dressed up in South Indian Traditional Attire, participated enthusiastically by singing Bhajans, Thirupaavai, Thiruvempaavai & Namavalis. Young girls & women performed Kummi around the Four Mada Streets of Kapali Temple. Smt. Gayathri Krishnaveni Lakshmanan and the only young Male Dancer Sugathan Mohandass and little girl Shrithi performed for the song “Naagendra haaraya Trilochanaya” which stole the show. Again all women performed kummi and Sugathan was the centrifugal point of these dances acted as Krishna among Gopikas. The Mylapore Trio explained the Children about the History of Mylapore and Kapaleeswarar temple and the importance of the sacred month of Marghazhi during the walk. Young Childen dressed up as Krishna, Gopika, Muruga and Madisar Mami were an added attraction to public. Venpongal and Sakkarai pongal were distributed to one and all at the end. Then all of us had a Dharshanam of the Lord Kapaleeswarar and Goddess Karpagambal.


According to the “Mylapore Trio”, “Margazhi Procession with Bhakthi & Chillness was a unique and a divine experience for the younger generation. We not only follow the “Footsteps” of the Musical Legends, but also retrace their “Path” on the four Mada Streets of Mylapore in order to inculcate Margazhi Bhakthi among the next generation - a thrilling & chilling experience”. Some of the senior citizens & parents felt that it was a good attempt to start the New Year with an auspicious beginning, by perpetuating the age-old tradition, involving the children.   The general public also participated with great enthusiasm and many elders & devotees out of sheer Bhakti circumambulated and prostrated before the children….. A very touching moment indeed…


The Mylapore Trio and Sugathan said that it was the Sixteenth consecutive year that this spiritual walk is being organized. This is the One and Only Children’s Group which has been steadily and regularly performing for more than ond and a half decade as Bala Vidhwan - which has definitely created awareness among the public, especially a divine impact in the minds of the children. Their parents too were very enthusiastic to bring their wards early morning for the “Bavani” (Procession) to feel the divine bliss.
