The show was designed for the entire family, from little children to their grandparents. While animations
The Panchatantra and Sukumar Ray's Abol Tabol left children of all ages giggling, the adults enjoyed a
feast of color through dance-drama-magic, interweaved with laser animation of the cutting-edge technology.
A packed house with captivated audience

Manick thanked all participants including the electricians, light men, sound-engineers,
and all that were involved in making the show a grand success
Frenzy continued long after the show was over. There was so much crowd in the stall to purchase animation CDs
and other products of Manick Sorcar, that his wife Shikha and some of the parents of group members
had to help in its control
"This one is for my grandson", said one gentleman, "sign for him on the CD, please!"
"We have never experienced a show like this before, where art meets science in such a unique way" were
the general comments.
Another special night, another special show for the special family members of the IPHE and IWWA,
The smiling faces of the audience made it memorable forever.
