“Diwali marks the victory of good over evil”
Seth AnandramJaipuria School, Lucknow, celebrated diwali with gaiety and fervor on 5 November ‘18. Exuberance was written on faces of young Jaipurians as they donned the festive colours and performed their parts with great zeal and enthusiasm.
The students of Pre-Primary performed a skit to show the return of Lord Rama and MaaSita to the holy city of Ayodhya. The skit started from the scene of Sita Haran and concluded with Lord Rama returning to Ayodhaya.Sharnaya Raj was convincing as MaaSita whereas Om Mishra looked imperial as Lord Rama. Ravan was played by MauasdeedAnand and Sanidhya suited the role of Lakshman. Apoorva looked convincing as Vibhishan and Trijata was played by ManasviAwasthi.The performances of our tiny tots, was heart- warming as they did justice to their roles and spoke with confidence.
The morning assembly conducted by juniorsexhibited the importance of festivals in our lives and how we celebrate diwali. Children were excited to share their thoughts and experiences. Children were also told about the reason to worship Laxmi and Ganesh who bless us with wisdom, peace, prosperity and intelligence. The valuable lesson about gaining wealth without intellect will only result in misuse of wealth, was stressed upon. This was followed with an enthralling dance performance by the students of IV-B- Ishita, Arshita, Elina, Bhavya and Lavanya. Shruti and Aryan of class V-A enlightened the students on the topic ‘ Eco Walk with Greener Thought’ which was followed by street play on ‘Say No to Crackers’ by Shruti, Vatsal, Pranay, Kushagra and Shreya. A short video on was screened on the life of small children who are forced to work in firecracker factories.
The celebrations concluded on a thoughtful note by our Principal, Mrs. PoonamKochitty, to help those who are not so fortunate as we all are. She stressed upon joy of giving and to celebrate eco-friendly diwali.
Wish you all a very happy and prosperous diwali.
