Dubai Nove 20:Billawas Dubai & Northern Emirates (BDNE) concluded a colourful spectacular 15th anniversary celebration on 16th November, 2012 at Jumeirah Ball Room, Crowne Plaza Hotel, Sh. Zayed Road, Dubai witnessed by full house audience.  The daylong event started at around 10.30 AM with prayers at the entrance of the hall in a small floral decorated temple, set by Satish Ullal and his team and from there the Guests were escorted to the main stage with live drummers and ladies holding trays lit with lights and flowers in two rows.

A totally new concept of prayer was created.  The stage opened up as if a new morning in a village and we could see a beautifully erected Billawas house created settings, the rays of sun peeping out of the house and with the background music of suprabhata appeared a man coming out and looking here and there to confirm the morning has started.  Later a woman came out of the same house and with the special effects of light and smoke she in the traditional style went straight to the Tulsi and did the morning prayers.  Later their son came out in his white outfit bowed to his parents and did the morning prayers.  This scene of prayer demonstrated the age long tradition of Billawas in India as to how they greet the special morning every day.  The stage setting and the event was designed by Mohan Attavar while the act was portrayed by Krishna Poojary, Shyamala Poojary & Udaya Kumar respectively.

Soon the MC of the whole day’s event, Shodhan Prasad, took over the stage and greeted the audience.  Vice President of BDNE, Praveen Attavar welcomed the invitees and guests and opened up the programme.
