The Indian Rainbow
" The Indian Rainbow" -- Symbolizing Indian Unity in Diversity
--> Around 7-10 Actors
Few countries in the world have such an ancient and diverse culture as India's. Stretching back in an unbroken sweep over 5000 years, India's culture has been enriched by successive waves of migration which were absorbed into the Indian way of life. It is this variety which is a special hallmark of India. Its physical, religious and racial variety is as immense as its linguistic diversity. Underneath this diversity lies the continuity of Indian civilization and social structure from the very earliest times until the present day.
We try to depict our country and its diversity using all the rainbow colors and each actor symbolizing a color and prominently showing one emotion or Rasa among the navarasas, trying to find an abstract relationship between these two.
We conceptualized the diversity in India as different colours of a rainbow! We have a statue (actor) which stands in the centre representing the country and other actors representing different colours come and act showing one particular emotion associated with each color which verymuch shows how diverse/ colorful India is.
There is fun, laughter, sarcasm, fight and at the end all colors realize that only when they combine, would the country find its true color, white, the color of peace.
