The magic of Christmas was in the air at Devnar School for the Blind. Children dressed in colourful costumes staged the Nativity Play in front of an excited audience consisting of their classmates, parents, guests and teachers.

“This is the first time I took part in the nativity play and I enjoyed it. I worked on my expressions and dialogues for two weeks. Given a chance, I would love to act in the play again,” said Avinash, a class eight student, who played the character of Joseph in the play. When asked what he wants to become in the future he said, “I want to become a successful music director like A.R. Rahman.”

The play included a dance sequence by small girls dressed as angels in bright white, looking no less than angels themselves and dancing to the tunes of ‘Joy to the world’. The event concluded with beautiful song and dance performances by the children.

Ishwar, who did the narration for the play says he enjoyed being part of the play and doing the narration.

“When I grow up, I want to become a good lawyer,” said Ishwar.
