IES Celebrates Gandhi Jayanthi! 

DSC 0010 1 11zon“A small body of determined spirit fired by an unquenchable faith in the mission can alter the course of history” may find no better analogy for the Father of the Nation, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. Gandhi Jayanthi, the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi popularly known as the Mahatma, was celebrated with all its pomp and glory by the Bhavanites in Indian Education School, Kuwait.  The event started with a prayer song led by the talented young students of the primary wing.   

To inculcate the ethos of patriotism and awareness about their motherland India in the young minds of the learners, teachers waded through stories of Gandhiji and his struggle ensuing the freedom movement. In addition, our LKG students were further initiated into activities like joining the dots to draw the picture of Gandhi and colouring the same while UKG kids made Charkha using sticker pad cut-outs. The real-life stories from Gandhiji’s life, of course, were instrumental in gluing the values Gandhiji upheld. 

The schedule of the whole celebration gained momentum when the most liked Bhajan of Gandhiji, Vaishnav Jan To, was renditioned by master Devang Koroth of Grade 4.  The bhajan is endeared by a vast number of people for its core values of universal brotherhood and humaneness transcending all sorts of boundaries and bifurcations. Rianna Samuel of Grade 4 has also made a noticeable top-up to the celebration with her speech centering around the ever valuable and indomitable messages that Gandhi’s life leaves behind. 

Mr. T Premkumar, the Principal of the school, in his speech reminisced the pivotal role played by Gandhiji in the Independence movement of the country. The key values of non-violence or ahimsa that Gandhi had always confided in have won global recognition as the day is also marked as International Non-violence Day. While enunciating the significance of the day, he also recollected that this day is also remembered for the birth of Shri Lal Bahadur Sashtri whose contribution to India’s headway can never go unrecognized. The principal concluded his message of the day with a convincing optimism that the day is not far when the globe will turn to our motherland for its enkindling and enriching guidance. 

To heighten the spirit of Gandhi Jayanthi a metal cast bust of Gandhi, moulded by the students of middle and senior wing Hariprasanth Ramaswamy, Darshini Pratheesh, Reine Mary John, Sachin Karunanithi, and Akhil Ramana Varma under the guidance of the Art teacher Mr. Prasanthan M, was unveiled during the celebration.
