Diwali Week Celebration
“The significance of Deepawali, Is the
removal of darkness and ignorance from the mind.
And fitting it with goodness…!!”
Diwali is one of India’s biggest and main festival. The
word Diwali means ‘row of lighted lamps.” In this festival, people lighten
their house with diyas and lights as it is considered that light brings
happiness. They also worship Goddess Lakshmi for good health and prosperity. It
is said that Diwali is the brightest and joyful festival in the world. The DPSG Sushant Lok celebrated Diwali in the form of a
Virtual Assembly. It was an astounding experience to have the senior and
primary classes together in the Assembly. There were a series of events from
Diya Lighting to Dance. The theme of the festival was a touch of “eco-friendly”
activities. The students spread the message of “joy of giving” as it remains
the main essence of any festival. The videos of the students spreading happiness
with their community were captured. They also performed a series of eco
friendly activities in the class. They prepared diyas, lanterns, torans, and
rangolis (which marked the significance of respecting nature & happiness).
The assembly also had a mellifluous song sung by Mr. Harshit and the students
enthusiastically made a chorus of the same. The assembly had a special significance because the date
coincides with Children’s Day. The Hindi Faculty Ms. Swati dedicated a
beautiful poem on Children’s Day, which was indeed a motivation for the
students. The assembly also had a special message from our beloved Principal Ma’am,
Ms. Anshu Mittal for Covid workers and students.
The special assembly carried a special aura for all of us.
In the times of pandemic, pollution, and changing weather it was like a soft
touch of gratitude from the DPSG family.
