Dear members,Padma Mohan
With Divine's blessings, our Bharata Darshanam event was a great success and every single one of the 600+ audience who attended the show will attest to that. Our musicians took us on a wonderful musical journey from Kashmir to Kanyakumari and I am sure everyone was reminded of a part of their childhood and wonderful memories of India during some part of the show! Like our chief guest Ambassador Venkatesan Ashok said, these musicians brought the best of India with unity in diversity. Salute them all!
CCC musicians: Everyone in CCC is so grateful to you for presenting such a phenomenal show. We all got to enjoy your months of hard work that created this magical experience for all of us and on behalf of all the members, I'd like to offer our sincere appreciation and thanks for making it possible.Â
CCC Volunteers: Thank you is not sufficient for all the hard work you put in to make the program a success. You all proved that we are not a group or an organization, but a family. The largest, musically inclined family in the bay area! Love you all. BTW, I am attaching the ppt that we had created thanking you but I am not sure if you got to see it as the music on stage was so engrossing. I am sure I have forgotten to thank someone here, please accept my apologies and thank yous.
CCC Members: If you attended the event (and I am sure you would have enjoyed it), please share your comments/thoughts with the group. It'll give great satisfaction to the musicians and volunteers if they received good feedback as that has the power to make all efforts worth it. I don't deserve all the compliments, the teachers need to hear it if the content was amazing, powerpoint volunteers need to hear it if the presentation was good, Audio team needs to hear it if you were blown away by how they controlled the 24 microphones, just to give you a hint.Â
Both of our photographers were busy with another event today so we'll share the photos a bit later. Thank you all again for your very kind and enthusiastic support to Bharata Darshanam! Bharat Mata ki Jai!
