‘Have every child experience the inspiration and mysticism embodied in Indian and World heritage’

 

SPIC MACAY is an affirmation of a priceless cultural heritage. It seeks to conserve and promote an awareness of the rich and heterogeneous cultural tapestry amongst the youth of our country through focus on classical arts, with their attendant legends and philosophy and to facilitate an awareness of their deeper and subtler values. It a solid value-based education, which involves the absorption of aesthetics and spirituality in an increasingly technical, mundane and competitive world. Thus its work is educational in spirit and character and locates itself largely in educational institutions.

SPIC MACAY runs on the energy of volunteers who come from all walks of life - students, teachers, housewives, professional and retired people, young and old. Nishkam Seva is a key aspect of the movement.

The Jain International School, Kanpur, is associated with SPIC MACAY and is continuously endeavouring for the holistic development of its students. To give to our young generation all that is beautiful, lofty and wholesome, a gem from the Indian Classical dance form Mrs. Rani Khanam, accompanied by tabla virtuoso Mr. Pradeep Mishra, vocalist and percussionist Mr. Shoaib Hasan and vocalist Sakshi Singh Chauhan visited our school on Tuesday, October 09, 2018 and mesmerized the audience with their vigorous and graceful dance and music movements. Rani Khanam is one of the most sensitive and astute interpreters of Lucknow Gharana of Kathak today. Her style reflected deep comprehension of the dance tradition which had set new dimensions and source of inspirations to younger generation. A powerful and imaginative dancer, Rani Khanam displays a breathtaking technique in both pure dance and in the art of abhinaya.

The Guest artists were given a warm welcome by the Principal Mr M.K.Panda, Headmistress Little Champs Mrs. Rekha Singh, and Headmistress Senior School Mrs. Deepa Singh.

The programme commenced with the auspicious ceremony of lighting of the lamp by the esteemed guests. Thereby the ensemble took their places on the stage. After a brief introduction of various dance forms that comprise of the vast Indian culture, the versed astute and virtuoso dancer Madam Rani Khanam created a spellbinding aura that glorified the morning and the day ahead. They mesmerized the young audience with their rhythmic and energetic melodious performance.
