Redefining the festival of lights
Diwali or Dipavali, which in essence means a string of oil lit lamps that symbolize prosperity, light, victory of good over evil and a promise of a better tomorrow is the most widely celebrated festival not just in India but even across the world. This annual festival is the closest to the hearts of families and is celebrated with joy and brings in a spirit of togetherness and unconditional bonding.
GIIS and GMP Chinchwad also celebrated the festival and the students indulged in many activities to mark the festivities. A special assembly was held which marked the significance of the festival. Students did a skit which had anecdotes that depicted Lord Ram’s victory over Ravana. A festive dance was also performed to mark the joyous moment. Students came dressed in their traditional attire that added beautifully to the occasion.
Classroom activities were also held in way of art and craft where students made cards, torans, diyas as takeaways for their homes. A small laxmi poojan was also held to orient students towards the customs and traditions of Diwali.
