Mystique's Open Mic event in Navi Mumbai (Belapur) on 9.7.2022

 We are now claiming, our rightful grounds
(A report)

A throng of the hearts throbbing with creative instinct was the scene of the verandah of The Hotel Park, Belapur CBD (Navi Mumbai) in the evening of 9.7.2022. They were not just neophytes rather a mix of all- fledgling, to-be-seasoned and aficionados. And so all the stages of the evolution of an artistic persona were on display. Upholding the sprit of pluralism in media, form and content,  some were singers, some were poets, some were comic performers. Not only this, there was at least one flute-player and one beat-boxer too. Even singers were of different genres - classical or movie and so were poets - romance, love, women liberty and patriotism. The whole event was captivating no one will think of missing out. 

A stand-up performer left everyone laughing by revealing a truth which was something like "..the bathroom is the best place to deliver a speech as at least, the wall has no liberty to go out". Ameya Kumar brought tears to the eyes of everyone by reciting a song of recently departed popular soul, K.K. - "Dard may bhi ye lab, muskura jaate hain / Beete lamhe hame jab bhi yaad aate hain". Kavya Patil presented a English song. Ishwaran was a master performer of this day whose flute cast a spell on all listeners. He was more disposed to show his mettle in classicals though people also loved his flute translation of "Ye moh moh ke dhage".

Ms. Jasmin was an impressive torch bearer of women's liberty. Her words raised a whole host of pertinent points related with struggle fought by the half of human population. She was able to fill all women with new strength when she stated, "We are done with dusting, all your doubts/ We are now claiming , our rightful grounds".  Her views reminded a burning issue of woman race who is largely underpaid and underestimated. So she says that " Woman can have it full". Nisha Shanwal was a new poet who presented a poem - "Adhuri si iss zindgi ko, tum ne pura kiya/ Mere adhure khwab ko/ tum ne apna liya"

Sneha Jacson has a sweet tuneful throat and an outstanding command over rhythm so we hope for her good future in singing. She recited songs of Shreya Ghoshal - "Mere saason ki jhankar ho tum" and "Jaise ho waise hi aa jaao/ Shringar ko rahne do". Saurabh Dash stunned everyone with his beat-boxing skills. 

Abhishek Tiwari had the capacity to change the mood of the whole gathering and took it to the patriotic feelings - "Ham us Hindi ke vanshaj hain, jahan Meera ne ras dhala ho/ Ham us Hindi ke vanshaj hain/ Jahan 'Bachchan' ki 'Madhushala' ho". He also declared that "Yug koi aaye ya jaaye/ Prem shashwat hi rahega"

Vipin presented a Kishor's song, "Tum hi to laye ho jivan me mere, pyar, pyar, pyar". The event was deftly compered by Indrashish Maulik. Vikram and Juberia on behalf of 'Mystique' were the key persons in the organiging team.
