It is often said
that the shape of the future depends on the children of
today, and to mold a bright future, we have to instill values
in our children. The necessity of these values was explored
in "Saanskrutik Viraasat," a grand cultural program presented
by the Balaks of the West Region.
was a musical drama that relayed the stories of three child
devotees of India whose virtuous characters serve as great
examples for children of today. Balaks first presented the
story of Shravan, who tirelessly served his blind and ailing
parents until the day he died. Balaks then conveyed the
importance of perseverance through the story of Dhruv. Finally,
the story of Nachiketa exemplified the importance of bravery
and zeal for salvation.
All those who
witnessed this program at the Anaheim Convention Center
were impressed by the hard work and effort demonstrated
in the magnificent performance. In his blessings to the
assembly, Swamishri commended the children's presentation,
and urged parents to instill such values in their children,
which can only be done by creating a bond of love.
