Skit of Innocence
Speaking of Innocence of childhood,
Reminds me of the stories of Robinhood,
The make-believe acts of Stories and characters,
Sarees and shawls ,scarves as the Attires of actors,
The dupatta as the curtain,
The handmade paper cut out crafts and some out-of-the-box art!
The rehearsals and the dress rehearsals,
The roles and redressals!
The dialogues and the prologues,
So naive at times,
So mature at times,
The props and the grinning gallops!
The gaudy make-up and experimental hairstyles,
The grandmothers and mothers , siblings and friends as the admiring audience,
The nouveau actors on stage,
Nervous and jittery,
Managing their moustaches and beards,
Adjusting their drapes and capes,
Feeling proud of their stage persona,
The spontaneous brilliance and occasional stammering, forgetting,
The team effort of enthusiastic energy and synergy,
The successful end of the skit,
Followed by genuine applause and claps
The capturing of the skit ,in the Charming camera of camera rolls,
Which will unfold the moments of the gala event!
