Samadrita was a dance-drama, depicting the journey of woman right from the origin of this world to the modern times. Angels of class 6 came up with a dance which marked the initiation of the process of origin of life. Class 10 portrayed the next step, that is the five elements of nature namely, Land, Air, Fire, Water and Sky, coming together to sow the seeds of life on earth.
A ‘Shakti Dance’ by class 9 highlighted the nine forms of Shaktis-the power. Students of classes 10 and 12 enacted scenes from a series of mythological epics and brought out the social conditions of women in those times. Be it the Kaikayi, Vidyotama or Gargi, women of those times were revered and given equal rights as men.
With the coming up of colonialisation of India and other countries, women’s freedom was restricted to ensure their protection and safety. This era was displayed by class 8 which performed a soldier dance and brought out the restrictions imposed on women in those times.
Even amidst restrictions, the women served an irreplaceable role in the society. No ritual or festivity was complete without them. Class 11 showcased this aspect of womanhood that is selfless and compassionate. They performed the folk dances of the Indian states and demonstrated how women celebrate and bring joy to their families putting aside their own adversities.
Class 12 presented a street play, highlighting the present condition of the feminine strata of the society. They put forward the plight and the woes faced by women in today’s world.
Even under direst circumstances, women have progressed in all the spheres of life. Samadrita ended with Anthonian family taking a pledge to work towards realizing the dream of a society that offers safety, equal rights and opportunities to women.
Mrs. Bisht concluded the programme with a vote of thanks and the audience rose to stand by for the national anthem.
