Festivals prove to be wonderful opportunities of bonding, spreading love and embracing each other’s religion, customs and traditions wholeheartedly to celebrate and enjoy the joys of life. They are a great way of breaking the monotony of life and look forward to days that are a little more special than others. The month of August proved to be a ride of fun moments with back to back festivals that elevated the fun quotient at school while allowing our students to understand and stay rooted to our traditions.
Dawning on Indian traditional attire, the students looked beautiful for the festivities in school. All the rituals and customs pertaining to Ganesh Chaturthi, Rakshabandhan and Janmashtami were followed that oriented our students to understand the importance of these festivals. The birth of Lord Krishna, Janmashtami was celebrated with pomp and splendor. Little ones danced to the tunes of “Madhuban mein jo kanhaiya…” and did the “Dahi Handi”. They also enacted various scenes from Lord Krishna’s life.
Students made cute rakhis to observe rakshabandhan and understood the story behind celebrating the bond of sibling love. During ganpati special assembly and class activities were conducted to celebrate the festival and modaks were distributed among all.
