Mangalore, Aug 19: Young boys and girls shook their legs to the tunes of Vedik Rock musician Ankit Batra of Sathvik Heights Group from Delhi at a concert held at Milagres Hall here on Saturday August 18.
With the trance beat ascending, young boys and girls immersed in the magnificence of music, with vedic hymns transporting the young minds to a different world.
Soothing songs like Govinda Radhe Gopala Radhe Jai Jaya Radhe made everyone go into a frenzy. Boys and girls danced separately on different dance floors.
Amidst western music genres like rock, pure Indian vedik hymns created an entirely new atmosphere.
The ‘Music Mantra’ event organized by Sathvik Heights was a unique effort to stress on the importance of spirituality that is washed away by western culture among the young generation.
Ankith Bhatra, who started as a software engineer, was attracted by music bands in his college days. When he got in touch with the Art of Living concept of Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Guru, he came up with the new idea of mixing spirituality with rock music. He has successfully organized such musical concerts in many corporate companies, colleges and in jails too.
Students, kids, and even senior citizens were part of the event.
