Delhi CWG ceremonies designed to inspire India's youth: Bharatbala

Delhi Commonwealth Games ceremonies Creative Director Bharatbala has said that while planning for the opening and closing ceremonies his main focus was to assemble a show which would inspire Indias youth.


New Delhi, Oct 14: Delhi Commonwealth Games ceremonies Creative Director Bharatbala has said that while planning for the opening and closing ceremonies his main focus was to assemble a show which would inspire India's youth.

Bharatbala, a filmmaker, had started planning the ceremonies 18 months ago with a committee of three others who led the preparations.

"The Great Indian Journey (a number in the opening ceremony)...This is the way we are. Let's show the strength of India. When anybody comes, they think, 'Oh my god, India is so chaotic!' But there is a method in this madness. That's why the Great Indian Journey was chaotic, yet still it was synchronized and artistic," the Wall Street Journal quoted Bharatbala, as saying.

He further said that the highlight of the closing ceremony is called "Agni", in which 800 performers from Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Manipur, Gujarat, Punjab, Maharashtra and Nagaland will display their skills in an eight-minute act.

He also highlighted that the audience can expect half of the 2.5-hour show to be full of popular culture.

"There's 30 minutes of nonstop lasers, music and dancing and 1,000 people on the ground in the other segment of the show," Bharatbala said.

In a tribute to the country, 2010 schoolchildren will perform to the tunes of A.R. Rahman's composed 'Vande Mataram'.

There will also be a 10-minute cultural presentation by 400 performers from Glasgow, Scotland, host of the 2014 Games.
