This is one of the new things that the TAKSHILA EDUCATION SOCIETY has stated in Patna. This is the name of the new multi storied cultural center that the organization is constructing in Patna. The idea of this center is to have all the different kinds of art all under one roof. There is going to be exhibition halls, workshop and training spaces, cafes and libraries and many more. There is also going to be an underground auditorium where there will be plays and other kinds of performing arts.
Being associated so closely with the TES the Parivartan Rang Mandali was asked to perform there at the stone laying ceremony on the 23rd and 24th of April 2016. This was one of the most important performances for us because sitting in the audience were really esteemed people form the performing arts fraternity. People such as Gulzar sahib, Sanjana Kapoor, Shyam Benegal, Subodh Gupta, Pt. BIrju Maharaj and Yashpal Sharma to name a few. This was something that not only had my repertory all starry eyed and amazed but also gave them the confidence and the energy to do a really amazing performance in front of these people. The other amazing thing that happened was our accommodation. My repertory is a rural one and many members of the groups are not so financially strong that they can afford a one night stay in a luxury hostel. The experience that the guys had was really amazing and they cannot stop talking about this which is a good thing because they keep on telling me that they want to go to more places where they can stay at such places more and have more fun.
I told them that very soon such an opportunity will come again where they will stay in such places and performs in front of such people.
