A. Performances: 

  1. Opening Song: The opening song “Samparka Setu” was a massive production with 46 singers singing in unison, and it was great to see our own Monali as a part of the team on the stage.
  2. Chapter cultural: Bandhana Ra Srota – A thematic presentation with Ananya, Aryaman, Vedic, Nitu, Monali, Mamata and Ranjita performing to a beautiful song on our relationship with our village and nature, choreographed by Nitu and Ananya.
  3. Tiki Duniya – Livna performed a beautiful Odissi dance, and was probably the youngest dancer on the stage.
  4. Odissi dance festival – Ranjita and Nitu mesmerized the audience with their “Kalavati Pallavi” dance in the Odissi Festival.
  5. Konark Express: A show by OSA Youth, it was completely executed by the youth team and was one of the best cultural programs of OSA 2022. Our chapter kids Aryaman, Ananya and Anisha participated in the show and stole the hearts of the audience
  6. Mehfil – The Qawwali by our Georgia team (Asit, Chinmaya, Monali, Munu Apa, Rajesh)  in collaboration with the Southern and California chapter was a unique presentation. It’s amazing to see the idea conceived by Smrutirekha during our Utkala Dibasa celebration being performed in the convention. Monali also sang a beautiful Odia song in the Mehfil.
  7. Fashion show – Ranjita, Monali and Vedic walked the ramp in style, during the fashion show as a part of the closing ceremony.
  8. Opening Ceremony: Livna also did the honors of handing over the bouquet to the mayor of Sacramento during the opening ceremony
  9. Drama: We presented a fictional drama “Samaya Setu”. Our actors Asit, Bhabani, Chinmaya, Lalit, Priya Bhai and Rajesh traveled through time and brought back a key message for our audience. The drama team was supported by Manas, Rani, Ananya and Mamata.
  10. Chess: Vedic played in the chess tournament on-site and was (no surprises!!) undefeated through the championship.

B. Awards: 

  1. Samik Singh Youth entrepreneur award: 3rd prize : Anisha Buxi. 
  2. Chess: 1st prize Vedic Panda. Vedic was undefeated through the entire competition and was the champion by a BIG margin.
