South East Asian Country of Thailand is popularly known as ‘Sailand’ in Sai parlance and Sathya Sai School in Thailand is always in the good news for the impactful value-based Sathya Sai Education being imparted to the blossoming future generation. Offering the final presentation of the week-long ‘BirthDay’ celebrations this evening, students from Sathya Sai School, Thailand, along with SSE children (Thailand) presented a drama entitled, ‘If There Was Little More Love’ in His immediate Divine OmniPresence in Prasanthi Nilayam.
Portraying a family with a cynical mother-in-law and her daughter-in-law at the receiving end, the presentation flows on touching upon Bhagawan’s finer teachings on love, driving home the bottom-line message of Love, that Love is the panacea for all ailments.
The irritant mother-in-law, Mrs Shau, was always at loggerheads with her daughter-in-law, Ms Lilly, who grew in frustration day by day, until the day when she made up her mind to poison her mother-in-law. Dr Huang, the loving uncle at home, dissuaded her from doing the ‘suicidal’ act, advising her in turn to do ‘slow poisoning’ that would take more time, but needed more patience and love. With the ‘slow poisoning’ on, the mother-in-law gradually started showing signs of improvement, becoming softer and loving towards Lilly.
Bemused at the change in character, Lilly called up Dr Huang, explaining the situation. With just a day left for the mother-in-law to die of ‘slow poisoning’, as she was given to believe, now Lilly wanted her uncle to come up with a new prescription to negate the ‘slow poisoning’ that had been on. Here, the medico uncle lovingly explained the girl the tactics employed, that he was in fact treating her mother-on-law for her ailment, helping her to come out of her ‘poisoned’ mind, mixing his medicine with Lilly’s tonic of love.
As has always been Bhagawan’s final word, Love is the most potent medicine for anything and everything, resounded the presentation signing off in style singing a resounding qawwalil, ‘Nishani Tho Chhod Jaa… Dilon Pe Nishani Tho Chhod Jaa…’.
A round of applause awaited the beautiful children, for their fine portrayal of the truth of Love.
Bhajans continued and Mangala Arathi to Bhagawan marked the glorious finale of the week-long 94th ‘Birthday’ celebrations.
