“Amidst the rich harvest Across the greenery
Baisakhi has arrived In all its majesty
So let’s rejoice and celebrate in style”
India is a land of many cultures which blend into each other seamlessly. Each region has its own way of celebrating New Year usually when the crops are harvested. In Punjab, this day is celebrated as Baisakhi. To give an insight of this day, the students of Manav Rachna International School, Ludhiana celebrated Baisakhi through a special assembly on 12th of April, 2018. The entire school campus was immersed in the spirit of festivity as the little ones came dressed in ethnic attire representing the punjabi culture.
The day started by seeking the blessings of Almighty through Shabad. The significance of Baisakhi was highlighted through a beautiful speech delivered by the Primary school students followed by a mesmerizing punjabi folk dance performance. The tiny tots enjoyed the beats of the dhol and their joy had no limit. A poem ‘Thank you farmers’ was also recited by the students paying gratitude to the farmers.
A mellifluous group song by the school choir and a dance performance by the middle school girls was a highlight of the celebration. The students also shared special Punjabi Cuisine with their friends during the lunch break. A video highlighting the significance of Baisakhi was also shown to the students in their respective classrooms.
Speaking on the occasion, Principal Dr. Rupali Saini congratulated and appreciated all the students for giving such scintillating and vivacious performances.
