Divine International School, celebrated Dussehra with a lot of fervor and ardor. A spectacular one act Ramlila was staged by the senior students in which they presented the scenes from the banishment of Rama from Ayodhaya followed by his victory over Ravana.
A huge effigy of Ravana with ten heads was burnt after the Ram Lila. The students raised the slogans of‘Raghupati Raghav Raja Ram’ and everyone around enjoyed the serene atmosphere. The students of primary classes danced on the Hindi number, ‘Ram ji ki chaal dekho’. The tiny tots from the junior section were attired in the costumes of Lord Ram, Lakshmana, Sita Mata, Hanumaan ji and wanar se
The primary objective of the entire show was to convince the students that no matter how intelligent a person is, his pride will be the reason of his collapse. They were informed that Ravana was basically very intelligent. His knowledge was equal to the knowledge of ten heads. His ten heads are symbolic of his great wisdom. They were intimated how his single mistake overpowered and nullified his entire wisdom. So ultimately the students were told to be genuine in their doings.
The tiny tots enjoyed the activity of making ‘gadas’, the weapon of Lord Hanumana. The teachers prepared the students as Lord Hanumana by painting their faces. The students enjoyed community lunch in their traditional dresses.
The Principal Mr. Om Dharnia addressed the students and told them that the purpose to organize this celebration was actually to make the students aware of the oft repeated message i.e the triumph of virtue over the vice. She congratulated the teachers and the students for the coming festival season.
