BAPS Women’s Forum, Birmingham entertained and enlightened an audience of 750 women with a vibrant musical production entitled ‘Haridarshan’ – a fusion of classical Indian and folk dance on Sunday, 7 October 2012, at the Piccadilly Banqueting Suite in Sparkhill, Birmingham.
Distinguished guests included the Mayoress of Solihull Janet Hawkins, Liberal Democrat Councillor for Hall Green Paula Smith, and Labour Councillor for Moseley and Kings Heath Lisa Trickett.
The inspirational musical production depicted a journey through space and time, across the four Hindu yugas (eras) – from Satya-Yuga, Treta-Yuga and Dwapar-Yuga, to the present day in Kali-Yuga
The cast brought to life exemplary female luminaries from Hinduism’s rich history, all of whom have promoted values, culture and faith to inspire countless generations.
The inspiring Hindu women included the likes of Maitreyi, who harboured an unrelenting thirst for spiritual knowledge; Shabri, who illustrated unflinching devotion to serve Shri Rama; Draupadi, who expressed unwavering faith and firm refuge in Shri Krishna; and Jivuba, who exemplified inner purity and sincere devotion to Bhagwan Swaminarayan.
A cast of sixty women between the ages of 3 and 65 worked together to deliver the colourful production.
The entire team of more than a hundred cast and crew members received a rousing round of appreciation from the audience at the end of the show.
