As part of the celebration of Imamat day, a talent show was organized in Reshit Chipursan on July 12, 2008. This was the 8th year of the talent show under the patronage of Boys scouts and Girls Guides Reshit Chipursan. The programme was a mix of innovative items like plays, dramas, poems, talk shows and many other interesting performances by the youth. These items were real gags whilst full of lessons on various social issues and trends.
Artists and youngsters from other villages of Chipursan also presented interesting items. The show attracted large number of spectators from all villages of Chipursan valley. Leaders and social activists from the valley appreciated the quality of the programme that has emerged over the last eight years. It was interesting to know that the first show was organized in 2001 when the source of light was kerosene gas. The major objective of the show was to explore talents amongst youth and preparing them for future leadership. The second objective was to promote an atmosphere of unity and brotherhood amongst the people of Chipursan valley.
Addressing this huge gathering, the chief guest admired the efforts of the youth and said that the event has been able to achieve its objectives and is well suited to bring a paradigm shift in the thought pattern of the people of Chipursan valley in this age of information and communication. Other major speakers included: Mr. Sahib Hayat President Ismaili Local Council and Mr. Ali Akber, Mukhi Central Jamat Khana. All the people left the programme with smiling faces and lots of joys.
