Prayer dance and a song rendition by the junior-most MLOP batch, two very inspiring acts by children, one from the staff quarters and the other from the crèche kids, that conveyed the need to reuse, reduce and recycle to save our environment entertained the audience.
There were two acts by the administrative staff – a dance-skit on womanhood and the other, a Krishna-Leela performance. Two more enthusiastic and energetic group dances were performed by the MLOPs and finally the programme culminated with a classical-folk dance medley by our doctors.
