Famous Bollywood Choreographer Terence Lewis’s group “Scrambled Eggs” performed first. Their performance was the narration of eight different tales about life. It touched the complexities of relationships and life. The performance was a fusion of dance and theatre. It was a splendid performance, and the audience remained spellbound to it right from the beginning to end.
