Gandhi Jayanti

“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
~Mahatma Gandhi

India’s 3rd national festival, Gandhi Jayanti, is celebrated by the entire nation to commemorate the birth anniversary of the father of our nation-Mahatama Gandhi. On the occasion of his 150th birth anniversary, IHS celebrated bapu’s birthday in school, a day prior, on 1st October, 2019, with great zeal, enthusiasm and patriotism.

The day commenced with a special assembly by Grade III, depicting the highlights of Gandhiji’s life through a highly spirited dance drama. It was followed by a song that encapsulated the basic essence of his teachings- a free life. The little Toddlers made a take away of Gandhi thumb printing as a reminder of the Father of the Nation. The students of Nursery and Kindergarten did a Charkha Making activity, symbolizing his way of life.

The school corridors resonated with the melodious tune of ‘Ragupati Raghav’, a favourite of Mahatma Gandhi, as a reminder of the importance of the day.

“My religion is based on truth and non-violence. Truth is my God. Non-violence is the means of realising Him.”
~Mahatma Gandhi
