Mysore/Mysuru: Youths turned out in good numbers soaking in the spirit of Dasara Yuva Sambhrama, even amid rain at Open Air Theatre, Manasagangothri, in city last evening.

The visuals of Durbar Hall of Mysore Palace in the backdrop added a touch of royalty. The students of Nirmala Composite PU College, Pandavapura and several other institutions entertained the gathering with their dance performances.

Dasara veteran Balarama, the elephant which carried Golden Howdah during Jumboo Savari for 14 years, which died recently, came alive with the dance performance by the students of Rathna College of Business Management, Kuvempunagar, for the song ‘Dasara Bantu Sadagara Tantu, Alele Savari Aane Mele Ambari…’

The valour of Kadamba King Mayura Varma was aptly recreated by the students of Government First Grade College, Tarikere, Shivamogga.

The indigenous art and tradition of Tulu Nadu, the coastal area of the State, was also exhibited with finesse by the students of MMK and SDM College for Women, Mysuru, through ‘Pili Dance’ (tiger dance) and Yakshagana.

The spirit of Kannada also reverberated with a dance to the song ‘Nam Jeeva Kano Kannada…’ by the students of S.M. Lingappa College of Education, K.R. Pet. The youths went gaga as they also danced to a folk song ‘Udho Udho Yellamma…’
