Ujjain: Weeklong workshop demonstrations by artist T Reddi Lakshmi’s Kuchipudi, under the aegis of SPIC MACAY and IOCL, came to an end on Saturday with closing performance in Police Training school (PTS) Maksi Road and in Government Girls Middle School Desai Nagar. SPIC MACAY convener Pankaj Agrawal said that 800 male and female police trainees participated in the module. They saw Durga Stuti where Lakshmi explained how important it was to be independent and have self respect. Through performance Lakshmi vouched mental and physical energy in women as it could help them safeguard their self respect and punish demons of today’s society.
Lakshmi then performed a Krishna bhajan written by Swati Thirunal and raag Shudhsarang and Aadi Taal. She portrayed the story of Lord Krishna saving Draupadi from humiliation in the Kaurava Sabha. Connecting the story with the present, she said that now it was the duty of the police and individuals to save women.
She concluded with a dance on the edge of brass plate and explained how dance can transform personality of a person. The workshop was also humourous as trainees of the PTS came on the dais to show Nava Rasas-expressions and did very well. In the beginning, SPIC MACAY’s introduction was given by Meenakshi Agrawal. On this occasion PTS DSP Shakuntala Ruhal, CDI Anil Tardal and Subedar Manoj Solanki appreciated efforts of SPIC MACAY. PTS SP Rashmi Pandey proposed vote of thanks.
