It is believed to be performed in memory of Goddess Durga’s victory over Mahishasura, where People dance together to the beats of dholak and tabla, striking a decorated bamboo stick with energy and enthusiasm. I am glad and happy that 1039 Participants performed for 6 Minutes 25 seconds and achieved a world record in the title “Most Participants Performing Dandiya (Gujarat Folk Dance) Simultaneously”
G.Loganathan, Secretary, MVM Hosur, proudly stated that the ritual dances of Karnataka are known as Kunitha. The various styles of dance that have their roots in Karnataka are one of the most important genres where it influenced India’s cultural perspective. The Karnataka dances are not only artistic expressions and are an expression of the State’s cultural past. Traditional Folk Dances from Karnataka include Kamsale, Dollu Kunitha, Bootha Aaradhane, Veeragase and more. I appreciate the participation of 948 students performing 6 Minutes 25 seconds continuously and for achieving a world record in the title “Most Participants Performing Karnataka Folk Dance Simultaneously”, he further added.
J.Venkatramana, Secretary, MVM-Hosur, detailed that, Kummi is a folk dance which popular in Tamil Nadu and Kerala, danced mostly by Tamil women in circles. Dancing may be different. In some places, it is very simple, with rhythmic clapping or beating of the drums, which our school children have achieved by performing the Kummi dance. I appreciate the hard work and efforts of 658 students who performed the Kummi Dance for 5 minutes and 15 seconds, dressed in a colourful similar dress code and achieved a world record in the title “Most Participants Performing Kummi (Tamil Folk) Dance Simultaneously”, he further pointed.
R.Shaila, Principal, MVM-Hosur, narrated that, Fusion dance is done within a community of dancers that have a variety of views, it is a combination of various forms of dance performed for songs, and here it was exciting to watch my 805 students performing Tamil Fusion Folk Dance for 6 minutes 5 seconds and bagged world record in the title “Most Participants performing Tamil Fusion Folk Dance Simultaneously”
Bhavana Rajesh, Adjudicator-Elite World Records, stated that Drama is a crucial tool for training students to live and work in a society that is less hierarchical and more Team Oriented. Students benefit from the drama in terms of Tolerance and Empathy. An actor must be able to completely inhabit the soul of the character they are playing in order to play it well, and having 443 participants performed in a single drama for 21 minutes depicting 1000 years of tradition, masters, life and legacy of His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi was remarkable, she further said.
