Then came our little Bharathiyar Bharathwaj Srinivasan affectionately called as ‘Kuttan’ in SIS circles who sang Kaakai Chiraginile Nandalaala followed by the dance duo of Sahana Sathish and Keerthi Giridhar who with their concept of ‘Andrum Indrum’ danced for the old and new songs creating a bridge for the two generations.

Come What May ... We will dance was the motto of the Trio of Vinisha Martin,Anaga Murali & Ananya Govindarajan who in their “Megam Kottattum Aattam Undu” in their stunning blue outfit with matching umbrella danced for a collection of rain songs..

Murali Ramadoss and his group of artiste with their drama ‘Marsil's Mangatha’ took all of us in to a different world and filled the audience with laughter.

The event that started with Lord Muruga rightly finished with Lord Krishna with the semi-classical dance by Vinita Suryanarayanan and Asweni Prem for a good mix of Kirshna songs
