The birth of the Father of the Nation, Gandhi Jayanti was celebrated with due reverence and grandeur at AVRS. The extempore speeches highlighting the Mahatma’s noble life, his austere belief even his most loved devotional song ‘Raghupati Raghava Rajaram, Patita Pavana Ram’ were all presented with such candour and spontaneity by fearless budding orators as young as Class IV.
The ever keen audience was also enthralled with various mellifluous musical rendition, both vocal and instrumental (violin and guitar) adding a sense of spirituality and eternity. The programme also captivated the viewers with the artistic and aesthetic acumen of our supremely talented little Adityans of the Primary Section.
The Principal of Poraiyur further enlightened all by elucidating the true definitions and relevance of the four driving principles of the Mahatma’s life: Dharma, Ahimsa, Sarvodaya and Satyagraha.
The celebration was compact, all-encompassing and needless to say, extremely inspirational.
