Bahrain: Bellevision Bahrain members come together for annual 'Tent Party'


Media Release

Bahrain, Feb 24: What is the best thing to do, when the winter nights have well and truly set in? Yes, fly away, somewhere hot and sunny, with the beautiful sun, smiling people, exotic barbecue scents and music in the air. Well, Bellevision Bahrain members did just that as they huddled together at Sakhir desert on the blissful, sunny morning of February 21, for their annual tent party.

With the temperatures hovering pleasantly around 20° C, the memorable event began with president Ivan D'Souza, welcoming all gathered and thanking everyone who made it to the tent party. He encouraged all present to enjoy the day to the fullest and make memories, pleasant and memorable enough so they last a lifetime. The blessings of the almighty were then sought through a small but meaningful prayer by Pramila D’Souza. Necessary guidelines regarding safety were imparted by Joel D’Sa. BV members took this opportunity to celebrate the birthdays of two of their fellow members, Arun Castelino and Alban Quadros, by cutting birthday cakes and wishing the birthday celebrants a lifetime of happiness. Newlyweds Wilroy and Joyce D’Souza were congratulated warmly and wished a happy married life.

Spicy barbecued chicken and sausages accompanied by some delicious home-made hummus, salad and Lebanese bread were served before the activities of the day could begin.

The entertainment-in-charge for the day, Steevan Lobo, lined up numerous games and activities like cricket, throwball, ringing the bottle and others that kept everyone entertained and occupied. The highlight of the day was the cricket commentary by Naveen Mendonca and the comical and witty commentary by Thomas Fernandes that left everyone in a state of frenzied laughter.

Lunch was an array of delicacies like rice, dal, pork, French bread, veggies, chicken and the birthday cakes for dessert.
The sunset and the cool evening breeze were welcomed by the lighting of the bonfire. Everyone gathered around it with steaming fresh tea and carrot cake. Children were given chocolates to munch on and the adults enjoyed some tuneful Antakshari.

As was foretold by the president, the members did have a lot of pleasant memories to take back home and this would not have been possible without the able support and contributions by the generous members, to name a few, Kishore D’Souza, Monica Quadros, Edward Fernandes, Joel D’sa and Ivan D’Souza. Registration counter was handled by Pramila D’Souza and Niloufer Quadros. Credit for photography and music goes to Rony Fernandes.

Apart from rekindling old memories that act as tranquillizers for the stressful life, tent parties instil a feeling of oneness and unity among all.
