Seth Anandram Jaipuria School celebrated the third day of Bibliophile Week by taking our young readers on a joyride to the lives of various great writers, poets and composers like Rabindranath Tagore, Ruskin Bond, Vishnu Sharma, R.K.Narayan and Vinayak Verma. The students of classes 1 to 5, i.e. the primary students, gathered at the open area for a special assembly. A few children were dressed as Indian writers who came upon the stage and enacted their roles as great writers. They shared the writer’s life history, the work and the awards conferred. The students were shown a presentation on various Indian writers who were very well known to them through their frequent visits to the library. There was an air of curiosity and excitement to know who would be the next writer and if they knew them. Finally, they could recall and share their experience with the writers on stage.
As the day progressed, the students enjoyed a funfilled in-class activity. Grades 1 and 2 engaged in a task named Poetry in motion. The students came prepared with the poem of their choice to recite and share with their friends. Grades 3-5 were given the opportunity to create their acrostic poems. It was an exhilarating and out-of-the-box activity as the style and expression were entirely unique for them.
The day became special with the presence of Ms Runjhun Noopur, an award-winning author of two books and a happiness coach. She addressed the students of classes VI-XII and expressed her thoughts on the power of language. She insisted and encouraged the students to use their imagination and communicate their ideas through language. Her compelling ideas on the power of reading and writing left all of us awe-inspired.
During the poetry writing session, the students further unleashed their creativity. They expressed their ideas through cinquains, shape poems and poems with mathematical tropes. Students realised the power of poetry and how a poem can concisely encapsulate great ideas. They also recognised the importance and magic of figurative language in poetry.
The third day of the Bibliophile Week was an enriching and fulfilling experience for all students. From acknowledging the Indian authors and poets to cherishing the figurative language of poetry, students realised the indispensable need for reading and writing.
