Puppets really engage and delight children. Watching them is in itself a form of art therapy for the audience.

Children are often fascinated by puppets and interact strongly with them, which can lead to an overcoming of shyness and fear and greater use of speech. The interaction also encourages concentration and use of the imagination.
Bangalore Knights Ladies Circle 107 & Bangalore Knights Round Table 174 organised an hour long puppetry musical “The Magic Hour of Puppetry” by Dhaatu Puppet Theatre on sunday, the 15th september at Rangasthala on M.G. Road.

This was also an initiative to get children know the Rangoli art centre in the heart of city specially made by the government with a primary object to provide arts, craft, cultural, and recreational facilities for the city of Bangalore & has Nagara Pete where handmade art and craft products are showcased, chillipilli – children interactive play area with large “Snake & Ladder” play equipment for children. It also has interactive fountains. There is also an ongoing display the paintings done by children from various schools….Apart from this there are art galleries, walk ways, friendship point, workshops & demo going on
The children assembled at around 4.00 p.m. and proceeded to the AC Auditorium, the stage was set with super cute puppets all ready to entice their little audience with their parents & grandparents. The show started with a welcome song in local language…teaching the children our culture then went on with Ganesha stuthi & story of Ganesha visarjan, Brides of south India, Chineese puppetry with dragon, an english puppetry piece from movie Sound of Music & ended with a vandana by a child puppet…The 45 minutes show was absolutely delight for the children & adult alike along with being superbly engrossing, entertaining & informative too. Few children wanted to go on the stage to touch the puppets & it took lots of persuasion from the parents to keep them in their places 🙂
After the show ended the children were allowed an hands on experience with the puppets to their sheer delight. The lucky kids who were brave to be on the stage got this wonderful opportunity.
Thanks to Ms. Anupama & their faculty for their faculty for this magical experience !!!!
Few children went on to explore the puppetry exhibition ” The puppets of the world” , few went out to play at the chillipilli. Total of 85 children & elders enjoyed the evening. Few who missed out on the 4.00 p.m. show went on to attend the next show.
Many Thanks to Area 6 Chairperson Cr. Manasi for coming all the way from Tumkur to attend the Fellowship.
Thanks to Tr.Ranbir & Cr. Simar who sponsored the entire show to spread the magic in the air.

The puppet show which was organised by BKLC 107 & BKRT 174 on the 15th of September was a huge success with the children….They loved it !!!!
The Circle & LCIndia standee was put outside the auditorium where the show was held. The Auditorium is situated on the M.G. boulevard , on the main road which is also a prime tourist location of bangalore which culminates to the famous M.g metro station. This stretch specially during weekends is used by lots of visitors, tourists for spending their weekends….the standee was left there even after the event till the closing time evening 7.00 p.m. Needless to say created lots of curiosity & queries before, during & after the show about what is Ladies Circle India
