‘Truth is always Victorious’.
To celebrate Dussehra, Delhi Public School, Dwarka Expressway, Sector 102-A, Gurugram got into the festive mode with a vibrant and lively special assembly. The assembly commenced by evoking almighty’s blessings and expressing gratitude for all that he provides. This was followed by the rendition of poems that glorified Lord Rama and the virtues that he symbolizes. Little buds from Pre-primary dressed as Lord Ram, Goddess Sita, Laxman, Bharat, Shatrughan, and King Ravana added to the uniqueness of the entire celebration. The assembly also witnessed an electrifying ‘Garba dance’ performance by the students of grade 4. Elated students, holding colorful sticks and dancing in vibrant traditional attires, were a sight to behold. Our kindergarten students adorned in attractive outfits, presented scenes to summarize the great epic Ramayana and emphasized on the values learned from the various characters. The highlight of the celebration was burning the cracker free effigy of the king Ravana at the school ground. All the students, Head Mistress Ms. Sumita Gupta, educators, and administrative department wrote an aspect of their personality which needs a change on a small cut out and pasted it on the effigy, as a symbolic step to eliminate that evil completely from their life. The cracker free effigy was burnt by respected Head Mistress Ms. Sumita Gupta amidst loud chants of ‘Jai Shri Ram’. The celebration culminated with the cultivation of marigold seeds by each and every class, that marked their yearning to let the good blossom within them spreading the fragrance in all directions and show responsibility towards the environment.
