A captivating ambience prevailed at Charminar on Sunday when hundreds gathered to enjoy the ‘Ek Shaam Charminar Ke Naam’ event held as part of the Sunday Funday programme.

Under the bright blue sky, scores gathered in what was seen as a transformation of the Charminar from a chaotic place into a fun-filled recreational arena.

Food stalls were lined up in two rows on the southern side of the gigantic monument where kebabs, pizza, burgers, pather ka ghost and other stuff was served while on the northern side, a stage was set up from where different artists performed to enthrall the audience.

The performance of the music bands of the Telangana Police left the audience spellbound. To captivate the mood of the old city audience, the police band played the ‘Bhutto’ number forcing the youth to dance for a while. To encourage the police personnel, Additional DGP Telangana State Special Police, Abhilash Bisth, showed up for the event.

Appa Rao, from Khammam, was one of the lucky persons to have visited the monument on Sunday. “I did not expect to be part of the maiden mega event planned at the Charminar. I am quite excited to witness such fun filled activities here,” he said.

Farhana Begum, a housewife from Chandrayangutta, said, “I never thought in my lifetime we would be seeing any such fun-filled events here. Initially, I thought it was like some regular event but after noticing the mad rush and ambience in social media platforms, I rushed to the place along with my kids so as not to miss it.”

Families and friends from across the city turned up to the place. “We went to Tank Bund earlier. But visiting Charminar and being part of the activity here is totally a different experience,” explained Priya, from LB Nagar who came along with her friends.

The programme commenced from 4 pm and had a series of events including sapling distribution, laser show, performance by magicians, stilt walkers among others. The event ended with the Deccani Mushira where artists from the city participated.

The local shopkeepers who were apprehensive about the activity initially, were left spell bound on noticing the huge crowd. “Successful gayah”, is how they put it.
