St. Elias school hosted the inter school Lezim competition of H- ward for the second time. The word Lezim’ is a Sanskrit word, which means beauty. With its beautiful pattern of sound and music, the dance attracts large number of people. Students from various schools proved this, as they beautifully displayed the lezim patterns. Traditionally dressed children completely regaled the spectators. The Lezim, a performance, combines the two, physical exercise and the art of dancing. Done with a Lezim or a small mallet, it is a fascinating dance performed in the formation of a circle, in twos or fours. The accompanying instruments are the drums. It involves a lot of stepping, hopping, bending, squatting, etc. to the perfect timing of the strikes of the Lezim. A large group of boys and girls wearing colourful costumes doing Lezim dance presents a beautiful sight while the Lezims strike rhythmically in perfect unison.

       An Interschool lezim dance competition was organized on Monday, September 7th at the St. Elias high School, Khar (W). The competition was organised by the Sahashaleya Upakram (H- west ward) where almost 15 schools participated making it a success.The competition was judged by Mr. Rajesh Awghade and Mrs Jayshri Shivdas. Participants came in a batch of maximum of 40 students. They were expected to make formations while playing lezim. Conveying of a social message through their formation had extra points.
