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.
