This positive feeling is needed more than ever and LISH is bringing the excitement of festive mood to the stage.
LISHA always been sphere heading the Deepavali festival activities around Little India, and this year will not be an exception.
When people are coping up with the current pandemic, LISHA brings festive mood alive amidst the COVID restrictions.
Not deterred by the limitations posed by the safety management measures, LISHA with its members and with the support of LISHA Literary Club (LLC) has designed events that will cater to both the local and international Tamil community still complying with the safe management measures.
LISHA Literary Club’s core focus is centred around Tamil literature.
This year LLC has lined up a feast of online shows to keep everyone entertained. They have lined up 5 shows worth 6 hours of production. The shows would span around, a Literature based debate program, musical dance-drama, fusion music & literature based movie songs & humors speech bites.
The shows are recorded at the studio based in Singapore and at various sponsoring outlets. The pattimandram (Literature based debate program) is being designed to sync up speakers between Singapore and India to create a stage show feel for the audience.
It is expected that about 60 Singapore based talents will showcase their speaking, dance or music skills through these shows.
Shows such as this will help to say hello to the world community, despite border closure LLC decides to take the internet highway to reach out to international Tamil communities around the world to broadcast the Deepavali shows on their various social media plat forms such as Facebook, youtube etc. Some of the shows will also be telecast through Puthuyugam satellite channel operating out of India. To make sure our migrant workers living at dormitories come together during the festive season, arrangements are being made for the shows to be broadcasted on the project dorm facebook pages where thousands of migrant workers living at dormitories subscribed to the page.
It is a great opportunity and platform for the local participants to show case their talent on an international level.
These shows are expected to generate close to half a million online viewership around the globe putting Singapore back on the map for international communities to see the Celebrations of Singapore and when the time to commence travel, then Singapore will be the destination of their choice.
Overall, this year Deepavali is going to be a fun, entertaining and interesting by involving the community and LLC is confident that this will bring our community closer together at home while linking us with the world.
