To seek the blessings of Lord Krishna, Krishna Janmashtami was celebrated at Meerut Public School, Vedvyaspuri on 22nd August, 2019 with mirth and joy. The fragrance of flowers, soothing aroma of camphor and the jingle of bells filled the air. While this religious importance is not lost, this day signifies a lot more to modern India, it signifies excitement, euphoria and a joyous spirit of enthrallment. To celebrate the extraordinary bond between children and the Almighty, the school took the opportunity to both jubilate and learn with the young minds. The toddlers dressed up as lord Krishna and Radha, complete with flutes, peacock feathers and matkas. The premise was decorated beautifully and the spirit of festivity was enhanced with Jhankis depicting life history of Lord Krishna. The celebration that followed was truly entertaining and educating.
The purpose of the flamboyant celebration was to inculcate value of sharing and respect in the students.
The life history of Lord Krishna was very beautifully depicted by colourful Jhankis, Bhajan and Dance. The main attraction of the event was breaking of the treasure filled Matki.
On the occasion, the Principal, Ms. Bela Chadha blessed all the students and gave them the message as always, looking ahead instead of reminiscing in the past. Her words truly summed up the efficacy of celebrating festivals of devotion and obedience towards their teachers.
