Gandhi Jayanti

Gandhi Jayanti was celebrated at GDSPS to commemorate Gandhi Ji’s life and teachings. Bapu’s noble messages were conveyed in a special assembly in the most effective and influential manner. The theme of the assembly ‘Invoking Gandhi’, was based on the thought that Gandhiji’s ideology is there in every being. All it needs is an effort to invoke those feelings from within and choose the right path. Students expressed this thought beautifully through various mediums like songs, dance, and talk. The students urged everyone to follow the path of righteousness and non-violence. They also gave the message of cleanliness as one of their ideologies of Gandhiji. Confident little commentators enlightened their peers with inspirational narration on the life of Mahatma Gandhi. As this day coincided with the pious celebration of Durga Puja, Ms. Seema Mehra stressed on the value of speaking no evil, hearing no evil, and seeing no evil. Ma’am also motivated the students to imbibe the exemplary qualities of simple living and high thinking.
