Mumbai, February 23, 2011
Keeping in mind the philosophy of the show Ц a movement to reconnect audiences in Central India back to their root, BIG Bal Kalakaar Ц India's first devotional singing reality show for children, on BIG MAGIC continues this in its upcoming episodes this weekend.
BIG Bal Kalakaar on February 25 and 26 at 7.00 pm on BIG MAGIC, will be devoted to Shivbhakti and songs devoted to Shivji, keeping in mind the recent Maha Shivratri festivities.
Maha Shivratri has great significance across the country but is especially important to people in the Hindi Heartland. The festival is celebrated with great devotion and fervor in the region.
It is believed that Maha Shivratri is the favorite day of Lord Shiva. It seems Parvati asked Lord Shiva which devotees and rituals pleased him the most. The Lord replied that the 13th night of the new moon, during the month of Maagha, is his most favorite day. Parvati repeated these words to her friends, from whom the word spread over all the creation.
In sync with the auspicious festival the episode opens with the judges Rajan-Sajan Mishra & Jatin Pandit rendering the Saraswati Vandana. Soon the participants join singing traditional compositions based on Shivbhakti. In fact some of the compositions were difficult, but this makes BIG Bal Kalakaar unique from other reality singing shows. With these traditional compositions the show is reinforcing the importance of Sanskaar among children.
These episodes also feature some interesting and educative interaction between the anchor and the participants on why they call Mahadev as Bhola Bhandari. The answers were innocent and amusing like "wo bahut bhole hai aur koi rakshas bhi tapsya karta hai aur unako pata hai ki wo galat fir bhi usako aasirwaad de dete hai isliye wo bahut bhole haiЕ"
Apart from some interesting stories on Shivji and his krodh, by the anchor, BAL Naraad also shares his amusing stories with the viewers. The episode has some brilliant performances from the participants. Some lighter moments between participants enlivened the episode.
