On the 26th of January, Bosco Boys Home, (BBH) Borivali had staged “ARMAAN SAB…KA”, a musical play done by the boys of BBH as a sign of gratitude for their benefactors, volunteers and well-wishers, to say a Big Thank you to them for their constant love, care and support. It was based on the life of an orphan, who grew up on the streets, encounters many helping hands in his life and how after landing in BBH, fulfills his dream (armaan) of attaining happiness and freedom and overcomes his inner struggles.
Many people who came to view it appreciated the play. Among them, an N.G.O named Youth for Unity and Voluntary Action (YUVA) approached and asked BBH to restage the Musical for their “ComplexCity: Connecting Experiences” programme as part of the “Culture Kaun: Expressions across the City” event held on 16 February, 2019 at Sai Baba Park Evershine Nagar, Malad. Also present were many other N.G.O’s from the city of Mumbai, who came and also presented different songs, dance, skits, and music.
The act performed by the boys of BBH was received with lots of applauses and positive vibes. The charisma and the power filled acting by the boys brought forth a lot of emotional sentiments being tied up, and many asking to be a part of the Bosco Boys Home family by volunteering and sponsoring.
YUVA was formally registered on 30th August, 1984 as a voluntary development organization supporting and empowering the oppressed and marginalized by primarily concentrating on their human rights. As part of their many activities, this year they are conducting a programme called “ComplexCity: Connecting Experiences” which is basically celebration of the city in all its diversity by inviting every urban inhabitant to share their experiences of the city with one another.
“ComplexCity: aims to further the dialogue on urban values, history, culture, socio-economic realities, and much more. So as to create an awareness about the current situation of our city and how to improve it and make it better. Through “Culture Kaun,” we aim to organize a series of cultural expressions across the ComplexCity festival, showcasing unique local traditions, music and dance performances, and poetry recitations to expose people to existing narratives of the city they may have not explored before. We thank Bosco Boys Home for been part of our event by putting up such a wonderful musical play and helping us to highlight the issues of children belonging to category of poor and abandoned,” said Sachin Nachnekar the event coordinator for YUVA.
“I was very happy to do the play one more time. It means the people really liked it and hope they call us again. I was also impressed by the various items performed by other groups. I thank YUVA for giving this platform to display our talent,” shared Prince Chavda.
Deacon Romero D’Souza, the Prefect of Studies who accompanied the boys to the event thanked and congratulated the YUVA group for the good work they our doing for the society.
