“Music always enthralls, elevates and produces a feeling of ecstasy. Music is the grand road to mukti,” says Sri Sathya Sai Baba. It is with this in focus that ‘Divinity’, the new arts club of the Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Educare, Chromepet, was inaugurated recently at the school. The inaugural function, aptly named ‘Sai Sunad’, was hosted by former students of the Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning, Puttaparthi.

The three-hour programme was chaired by renowned Carnatic vocalist O S Arun and Sowmiya Madhangopal, renowned Hindustani singer.

The programme commenced with the lighting of the traditional lamp by O S Arun. He later spoke about music and his experiences as a singer. He said music was the easiest way to reach God. Emphasising on its beauty, he stated that it was as serious a subject as science. He sang two popular Sai Bhajans, much to the delight of the large audience.

O S Arun is a postgraduate in music. He was awarded the Kalaimamani award and Music Academy’s Best Vocalist Award. He hails from a family of illustrious singers.

He then distributed prizes to Bal Vikas students who had won the Tamil Nadu state-level music competition.

Later, Sowmiya Madhangopal enthralled the gathering of students, parents, and Sai devotees with nine heavenly bhajans sung in typical Hindustani style.

As a fitting finale, the young Bal Vikas students, who won the Tamil Nadu state-level music competition, rendered five beautiful songs on Sai Baba in various languages that mesmerised the audience.

School principal K Sai Meera proposed the vote of thanks.

The programme concluded with the school’s correspondent P Kumaraswamy performing the mangala aarathi.

Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Educare is a CBSE-based school situated in the rural environs of Nemilicherry, off Chromepet. It is run on the principles of the Sai system of education. The partially-residential school provides quality education totally free of cost.
