3 Generations in Krishna Devotion

Our next post is a “Krishna Leela” dance presented by Meghana as Lord Shri Krishna, and friends Amey Shenoy, Milind Nayak, Anurag Kamath & Arya Prabhu as gopabalas, at the UAE Amchigele Samaj annual day celebration in December 07.

What is unique about this dance is that it involves the talent, efforts & enthusiasm of three generations:

  • Meghana, a 7 year old grade III student of Indian High School, Dubai;
  • Sujatha Bhat, Meghana’s doting mother who lovingly encourages her budding talent &
  • Smt.Jayanthi R. Pai, Meghana’s multi-faceted charming grandmother of whom both Sujatha and Meghana are immensely proud.

Smt.Jayanthi R.Pai not only composed the lyrics & the music but also sang this konkani song that melodiously depicts incidents from Shri Krishna’s childhood.

Smt.Jayanthi is a an extremely talented lady who participated in & won several competitions during her school years at Honnavar. She is also a well known public figure, having served as Corporator in Mangalore for 5 years.

It is no surprise then, that her grandchild Meghana is showing a keen interest in music and dance from such a young age.

We wish to thank Smt.Sujatha & Shri Ganesh Bhat for sharing this video with us.

  2. I am sure, those who attended the Samaj Annual Day last year did enjoy the ‘Krishna Leela’ song with dance. Someone from the audience was heard saying ‘Krishnu Aaylo Dubaayintu’.

    True – the presentation was very nice and memorable. Lovely and lively !

    All say that the Lord is everywhere – in each and every place, stuff and what not ? He has once again proved that He is present in cyberspace also, especially in Radioidli pedaavann !

    Kudos to all…
    Jai Konkani, Jai Samaj !!

  6. The performance is excellent. Krishna dancing on the land of sands is really great. Credit should go to those who took the culture to the far off land.
