Apart from the warm welcome given to the distinguished guests by the school band, customary lighting of the lamp to the accompaniment of shloka chanting and a completely entertaining cultural program, the highlight was a thought-provoking play 'Neev' presented on the news-making but alarming on-line game that led teenagers to suicidal tendencies.
The play began with the protagonist Sunil who achieves his dream of becoming a successful singer. On being asked about his struggle, he delves into his childhood where his agony due to child abuse in the cab, bullying in school and parent's disinterest and hostility in following his passion had led him to naively play the on-line devil game. Just before he readies himself to jump off from the building, his parents alerted by his attendant, are able to dissuade him from doing so. His parents regret their behavior and promise to help their son in realizing his dream.
The happy ending between Sunil and his parents also struck a chord with the full-house attendance, who responded to the positive message by applauding. It was quite evident that the message of investing time on our children as the most crucial determinant for their social, mental and intellectual development, had been driven home.
