MAR IVANIOS SINGING COMPETITION- The LEGACY OF BHOPAL MCYM
MAR IVANIOS SINGING COMPETITION- A singing competition organised by Bhopal MCYM every year in the month of September for all the catholic churches of Bhopal. This competition simply means " BRINGING GLORY TO THE LORD THROUGH MUSIC". Musicians from different churches come and give their best performances. For past 21 years, Bhopal MCYM has been organising this singing competition. Mind it!!!!!! 21 years and i feel proud being a part of it. God's grace has been great upon us and its the blessings of God almighty and the prayer of our elders that has made this event a great success every time .
This Singing competition is a legacy handed over to us by our predecessors, which we are proud of. We take pride in organising it. And i have enjoyed each and every moment contributing my part to it. Getting the invitations ready, going to each and every church and handing over the invitation personally, collecting funds and managing it, Shopping and ordering, decorating the church, Arranging the food stalls, getting the trophies, collaborating with Different band groups and the list goes on. Its all fun when you are doing it with your friends. You learn the basics of organising an event through experiences like this. You learn to handle stress and taking quick decisions. There were times when we used to run out of funds, there were times when we did errors but such is the grace of God on us, that every problem got fixed in due course of time.
I got a chance to meet some wonderful people who are my friends, some great singers whom i admire. Its has been wonderful being associated with this awesome event and i hope to be associated with it in near future too. So many memories, so many lessons, wonderful experiences, lovely people, great music and glorifying our Lord .
I as a member of Bhopal Mcym feel proud to be a part of this blessed legacy. and i hope my younger brothers and sisters carry this legacy forward; with each time, the event getting more bigger and grand than the previous one.
