Janmashtami celebration kicked off immediately after the Independence Day celebration. Students assembled in the Parvati area, to rejoice Dahi Handi. The musical background further accelerated their excitement and everybody swayed to the tunes while expectantly waiting for the Handi to be taken down. Just as Krishna and his friends loved stealing curd and butter from high held handis, three elegant pots were hung high in the Parvati area against the energetic background. The students swiftly took help of one another and after many foiled attempts, they were finally able to break the Handi.
The children got to experience what it takes to form a human pyramid – a thing that they often hear in stories. They realised that it doesn’t only take physical strength to make and climb a pyramid, but also some level of planning and team work.
After overturning the handi, the children got to feast on the curd and dance to the songs, which made this experience memorable.
At Rishi Gurukulam, we endeavor to create great memories for our children. Events like these form a part of the chain of memories which students treasure for life.
