Mumbai, March 28: There is a blame on today's youth, specially on the youth of metro cities, that many are not utilizing the talents, are addicted  to alcohol or drugs or else, do not want to work hard to achive the goals, ...and many such blames.

But the youth group from Orlem parish is setting an example to such youth by doing some charity while exhibiting their hidden talents

"It is amazing how from small things the best things begin," these are words from a song, but they seem to perfectly describe the achievements of the youth of Orlem. Starting with small church skits, moving towards English plays and now a Hindi comedy! The youth of Orlem have been progressing remarkable well in all fields of creativity, dramatics being just one of them.

On the April 30, the youth group will be staging their first-ever Hindi play, the proceeds of which shall go towards building homes of those affected by the floods last monsoons. The youth will travel to Raigad and be physically involved in the building of homes, by utilizing the proceeds of the play .

The play is a Hindi comedy, a spoof on the typical Saas-bahu serials aired on television. It pokes fun at the prejudices and biased perceptions rampant in Indian society, while tackling a few other social issues like alcoholism.

The preparation for the same has started from January 2006. Most of the cast consists of working youth, hence rehearsals take place only at weekends at late hours. "We have great plans ahead of becoming a moving theatre group, performing in different parishes to raise funds for many noble causes," says one of the leading lights of the group.

For their project to be successful, they feel, they will require the support of like-minded and blessing of seniors.

Those who are in Mumbai can reserve the date - April 30 - to witness their show and provide them with moral support.

Brian Lobo,  writer and director of the Hindi play 'Kya Aisa Bhi Hota Hai?' , while speaking to Mumbai correspondent, said they would be excited to feature shows for charity "We need to set an example to the youth of Mumbai and of the nation. We are'nt doing something 'very' great. But what we are doing is indeed should be a matter of inspiration to others. If others follow our our path, we can build a nation in a meaningful way," he says
