Bandra Idol at ‘Celebrate Bandra’

You remember these songs?

“Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things……”

And how about this song “Daddy, you are too old to dance on rock n roll”......

and yet another one "Heal the world"........

These and many more beautiful songs I heard today while I sat at Bandstand promenade, under the moon light, enjoying the sea-breeze. I liked it especially because kids were singing these songs. They performed with great theatrical skills, dancing with rhythm and with much confidence, quite a performance, I must say cause, not once did they falter in their lines…..great show! They knew how to communicate with the audience.

The performers were classified into three groups: 7-10 years, 11 – 13 years and 14 – 16 years. I have started believing that Bandra has got a talent and I doubt if any other suburb in Mumbai has the platform to give a chance to their artists to showcase their talent.

The later part of the show was continued with the top five finalist of Bandra idol, the winner of this show, (we were told) would get the chance to perform at the closing ceremony of ‘Celebrate Bandra’ at Bandra Fort amphitheatre.

The name "Bombay" was derived from 'Bom Bahia' (The Good Bay),

.... a name given by Portuguese sailor Francis Almeida, in 1508 ....“Bounce back Mumbai” it is called by the locals, it is a city that has been through a lot in the recent past – floods, bomb blasts, riots – and come out stronger each time.

Whats the Time Please?
