Detroit Telugu Association Executive Committee would like to "THANK ALL THE FAMILIES" for the great support in making the 2013 Ugadi Event a successful event that will be remembered for years to come. DTA seems to be rewriting history as it breaks its own records of putting up out of the norm events. This was evident last Saturday night when DTA welcomed and celebrated the Telugu New Year "Vijaya Nama Samvatsaram". The celebrations were kicked off with much gaiety and enthusiasm on May 4th 2013, at West Bloomfield High School. The evening began with a feast of traditional food provided by the local Aahar Restaurant including the unique and savory "Ugadi Pachadi".
2013 Executive Committee started a new chapter in DTA history where tradition and technology integrated seamlessly to deliver a spectacular evening. Sri Venkateswara Temple Priest Sri.Rajagopalachari garu delivered a message explaining the significance of the New Year through digital telecast after which he offered prayers in person on the stage. The programs that followed were sensational in appearance and outstanding in effect. Each item was nothing short of a mini theatrical production with ever changing backdrops of panoramas displaying the names and photos of the performers, and item specific sceneries. The audience were in awe at the dramatic setting on the stage decorated by Sirisha Uppalapati, Sirisha Ravipati, Ramesh Gogineni that included a typical yet nostalgic village scene from India complete with a hay hut, bullock cart and a mango tree full of ripe mangoes (peratilo mamidichettu), emblematic of the season in which Ugadi is celebrated.
The attendance exceeded the auditorium capacity prompting organizers to provide additional seating in the aisles. The spectators were spell bound as 275 talented individuals performed 32 items over five and half hours. Even though the performances went into the late hours of the night, the sense of "you move, you lose" was very evident as everyone stayed glued to their seats witnessing the exceptional talents of American born Indian kids dancing away to the traditional and classical notes as well as energetic and scintillating Tollywood beats. We are sure that all the attendees have thoroughly enjoyed every moment of the event. The enthusiasm shown by all the audience and the talent of our next generation children of all ages are heartwarming and we appreciate the amount of time spent by parents and choreographers to bring out the best from the kids. The evening was just not dance and music, brilliant kids who excelled in Chess, Robotics, and other competitions were also recognized and honored, and volunteers were acknowledged and appreciated.
I would like to appreciate the efforts of my executive committee members Venugopal Suraparaju, Jithendra Bondada, SrinivasRaju Dhenuvakonda, Venkat Adapa, Sridevi Gogineni, Ramesh Peddeti, Praveen Jettipalle, Karan Poreddy, Kishore Tammineedi, Ajai Kodali, Mallikarjun Padukone and Harsha Anche for helping in raising the membership levels to create a history in DTA. Special thanks to all our sponsors for their support and would like to request you all to extend your support to their business as appropriate. Dr. Sai Kumar Lingam garu, Dr. Hanumaiah Bandla garu and Dr. Srinivas Kodali garu presented mementoes to our sponsors showing appreciation for their support.
Well organized and coordinated efforts by our Cultural Secretary Sridevi Gogineni, Student Coordinator Leela Prasad (Chichu), Youth Coordinator Anurag Koduri, Stage Coordinator Sirisha Uppalapati and Audio Video Coordinator Vamsi Devabhaktuni maximized the evening's entertainment which ended with the grand finale of an extravagant dance drama depicting Tollywood love story performed by the gorgeous girls and handsome boys of the youth committee and choreographed by Priya Adusumalli, Yamini Mada and directed by talented young chap Leela Prasad Pamidimukkala (Chichu). The 35 minute production with 40 teenagers was all encompassing with punch dialogues, elaborate dance routines, synchronized movements, and costume changes for every scene. This grand performance from the DTA Youth team reflects their keen interest and we are proud to say that one of the key objectives of this year's DTA Executive committee is to encourage them to be more involved, not only in the Telugu community but in the broader community service activities.
All in all, Detroit Telugu Association's 2013 Ugadi celebration was an exhilarating event that mesmerized the audience for hours and will be talk of the town for months to come. Before we conclude, we would like to once again thank all the DTA members and their families for the support extended. We sincerely request to you all to continue the same support for the upcoming events not only this year, but forever.
