Amritapuri Christmas Play 2017

The Christmas play was last night and it was as wonderful as I expected it to be. Every year I think the musicals can’t get any better, and then they do.

The title of this year’s musical was Walking Beside Us. It was the nativity story as told by a young child living at the Rosenberg School for Girls. It will be a while before I will have access to the photos from the play but I will share a video clip of part of a scene from one of the very early practices now. I think it will give you a sense of what the play was like.

The child who was telling the story of Jesus’ birth decided that one of the wise men was from Africa. In this video clip the woman who plays that wise man (in the play she is a man) is dancing with many types of animals. You will also see her teaching the animals how to do African dance.

I look forward to sharing photos from the play itself so that you can see what the costumes looked like when they were finished.

It is either Christmas Eve or Christmas Day where all of you live, so I will end this post by saying “Merry Christmas!”

  1. Hi Karuna,How nice that you could go back to India and support your children again in the Christmas play effort.Of course I look forward to seeing it on DVD.  Could you bring me a DVD  NTSC copy of the play as you have done in the past.  I always look forward to having them and watching them numerous times during the year.My particulars are: Shelley Dunham  735 N Sandy Shore Rd  Chimacum,  WA  98325We are having a WHITE Christmas.  I think we’ll be snowed in for a few days.  Life in the country !!I am enjoying your Amritapuri updates — as I always do.  You are a fantastic journalist.I also wanted to let you know my perspective of Europe Tour.  It was a good tour for me and I hope to do it again. I was very impressed with your daughter’s demeanor during the tour.  From my viewpoint she did a wonderful job coordinating the bookstore activities.  She seemed calm and relaxed and I hope she had a good time.  Wishing you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and I hope to hear from you when you get back stateside.Jai MaSri Lalitha

    1. I was planning on getting you one although I thought I would get all thumb drives. We had trouble with some of the dvds last year. I respond to more of your message later. Bedtime. Went to bed at 3:30 am yesterday.


I would love to hear from you!
