UK ಹವ್ಯಕ ಸ್ನೇಹಕೂಟ 2017 – Bristol

  • HBUK Getogether 2017 Participants

On the bright sunny morning of 17th June 2017, the wonderful city of Bristol embraced with warmth and enthusiasm scores of Havyaka families from all over the United Kingdom for the occasion of our third Annual Havyaka Balaga UK get-together.
The event began with traditional “Pooje” performed by our own priest Prasad Bhat followed by lighting of lamp by the esteemed seniors Dr Keshava Bhat, Mrs Sharada Bhat and Mrs. Sandhya Battu amongst others.
The cultural activity started off with the Havyaka anthem and a key highlight of the morning was a fashion show performed by our lovely ladies who walked the ramp with grace and charm to the tunes of popular music. The delighted audience burst into applause with cheers and whistles as the show proceeded.
The highlight at lunch was delicious food presented by Shivalli, Leicester and served with enthusiasm by an army of volunteers wearing custom made Havyaka Balaga UK T-shirts.
The post-lunch session started off with a welcome speech by local organising committee member Mr Yogindra Maravanthe followed by number of performances from various budding Havyaka talents. An extraordinary act from Dr.Rajesh Krishna, Ashwini Ramana Bhat and Shreema with the story of Bhakta Prahlada and Hiranyakashapu was followed by wonderful dance performances by the Bristol group of Vasumathi Prasad School of Dance. The afternoon was filled with children’s performances, group activities and various interactive sessions and the talented participants of the day were encouraged with awards of certificates and medals from the organisers.
The finale and highlight of the day was Yakshagana performed by the talented father-daughter duo of Yogindra and Sunidhi Maravanthe. The event ended with a vote of thanks from Gowtham and the Indian National anthem sung by all the gathered children.
The Havyaka Balaga UK community has been growing with every passing year and has been embracing and welcoming new members arriving in the UK to its fold.
Annual events like these have been wonderful platforms for our future generations, has helped to bring together the community outside our homeland, and is going to be remembered as one of the successful Havyaka community events in the UK.
