Our Students and close associates:

Thank you to those of you who have responded so positively to our initial letter.  Your interest means a great deal to us, and to this project.

October 2018 is not too far. You all have to act fast. On our side, there's a great deal of progress.  We are planning everything meticulously and methodically in association with Mrs. Uma Ganesan and Cleveland Cultural Association (CCA).  And Uma Ganesan has been working with the Verb Ballet Company of Ohio and has now finalized the details of their collaboration in the Jungle Book revival.

Some of you have been asking how to send your contribution towards the project. There are two options:
If you have Bank account in India, a cheque may be issued in the Name of Bharatakalanjali (Note: towards golden jubilee celebration 2018).  Please mail it to us (Bharatakalanjali, No.6 Jeevaratnam Nagar 1st street, Adyar, Chennai. 600020, as soon as possible and we will send a receipt and acknowledgement and receipt in due course. You may also transfer the amount directly to Bharatakalanjali account. We will send the details when required.

Issue a USD cheque in the name of CCA Ohio.  Because CCA is a non profit organization, you will also qualify for a tax benefit. All of Verb Ballet's expenses will be met out of your generous contributions.  Address to which you may send the covering letter AND  CHEQUE :In the name of CLEVELAND CULTURAL ALLIANCE, MAIL TO:
MS.POONAM PUNWANI, SECRETARY, CLEVELAND CULTURAL ALLIANCE, 38690,FLANDERS DRIVE, SOLON, OHIO-44139, USA.   Email: umacca@gmail.com  and balaumaganesan@gmail.com

With regards to our schedule, we've blocked the first week of October 2018 for rehearsals and Jungle Book programs.  On either the 1st or 2nd of October, we will open the entire day - morning to evening - to all Bharatakalanjali alumni from around the globe to present their work - individual or group, live or DVD, or as a showcase of work or discussion.  It's an opportunity to share what you've learned from your teachers and experiences and how you've developed on your own.

To plan this mega event, we need your immediate confirmation with details of how many members will participate, duration not exceeding 15 to 20 minutes, details of the presentation etc. You should send us all publicity materials including a small write up about individual or  institutional particulars and pictures to go with your presentation write up.

We are planning to bring out a nice souvenir commemorating   the golden jubilee in which your pictures and program details will be published.  Available pictures spanning 50 years of Bharatakalanjali's activities will be the central theme of this monumental publication.

We also invite you to share in writing your memorable and interesting experience in Bharatakalanjali and how this institution  has influenced or contributed to your life's achievements and progress.

If you have any other suggestions please communicate to us as urgently as possible. Most of you may be busy in your career and bringing up family, but we hope you may be able to spare some valuable time for your alma mater and teachers who always loved you and still remember and love you.

YOUR IMMEDIATE RESPONSE WILL BE  HIGHLY APPRECIATED.

MASTER & AKKA & to some of you AKKA & ANNA  (THE DHANANJAYANS)
