In commemoration of the late Shri Riyaz Ahmad Tahseen, the Bharatiya Lok Kala Mandal organized the colorful event 'Nrityanjali.'
Dr. Laik Hussain, the director of the Bharatiya Lok Kala Mandal, shared that the event was held by the Bharatiya Lok Kala Mandal, Udaipur, in honor of the late Shri Riyaz Ahmad Tahseen, the former secretary and vice-president of the Bharatiya Lok Kala Mandal, on the occasion of his birth anniversary. At the beginning of the program, Chief Guest Dula Ram Saharan, the institution's director, along with esteemed guests, paid their respects to Shri Riyaz Tahseen by garlanding his portrait and lighting a lamp. Following this, the institution's director welcomed all the guests, visitors, and artists to the event.
He described Shri Riyaz Tahseen as a social worker, educator, art connoisseur, industrialist, and a Gandhian thinker. Although he was associated with several other organizations in the city, he had a special affection for the Bharatiya Lok Kala Mandal. He remained dedicated to the development and progress of the Bharatiya Lok Kala Mandal throughout his life. His demise has been a significant loss to the Mandal family. To honor his memory, the Bharatiya Lok Kala Mandal has been organizing an annual program on his birth anniversary, and this year, on September 20, 2023, the 'Nrityanjali' event was held.
Following this, Udaipur's Rangprusth Sanstha's artists, under the direction of Mrs. Shipra Chatterjee, presented episodes from Lord Krishna's childhood, such as the stealing of butter, the lifting of the Govardhan mountain, and the subduing of Kaliya, in a classical dance style. The audience enthusiastically applauded the performers during the program, showing their appreciation.
At the end of the program, esteemed guests presented mementos and accolades to the artists. The main performers in this event included Ahana Zakaria, Suhani Choudhary, Kinjal Pandit, Anusha Sharma, Reena Bagdi, and Jyoti Mali, with costume assistance from Anukampa Laik, makeup by Lubna Khan, and music direction by Sangeet Prabuddha Pandey.
