REVIEW FOR DANDIA RAAS
Get your act together and dare the festive season to begin earlier than scheduled. It's time to bring out your dandiya sticks and start practising your best garba moves. Just pray that you won't turn heads for the wrong reasons, as you sway to the best beats at the Dandiya Raas this weekend. The event is being organized at Bantia Gardens on the 12th September, from 6:30pm to 11:30pm.

Jaycerette Wing of JCI Banjara is hosting its annual Dandiya Raas. The evening will begin with a game of tambola, that will go on for an hour, from 6:30pm to 7:30pm. Then begins the festival, which will include Dandiya and Garba. The Lala group will play some peppy Garba music in Gujarati and Hindi. Cool drinks and coffee will also be served to participants.

JCI has been organising this event every year, the funds from which are given to social causes that include Kanyadaan and Vidyadaan.

The Dandiya Raas dance originated as devotional Garba dances, which were performed in Goddess Durga’s honor. This dance form is actually the staging of a mock-fight between Goddess Durga and Mahishasura. The sticks represent the sword of Goddess Durga.

This Gujarati group dance form sees men and women participate in pairs, while holding decorated bamboo sticks, called Dandiyas, in their hands. Tiny bells or ghungroos, tied at the end of these Dandiyas, jingle when the sticks are struck with each other.

The main difference between the Garba and Dandiya dance performances is that Garba is performed before the Aarti, as a devotional performance in honor of Goddess Durga, while Dandiya is performed after it, as a part of the merriment. While Garba is performed exclusively by women, both men and women join in for Raas Dandiya. Also, the circular movements of Dandiya Raas are more complex than those of Garba.

Entry is priced at Rs. 200. Please contact 93955-80001 for further details.
