Dusshera, one of the most important Hindu festivals, was celebrated on the October 4, 2019 at Manav Rachna International School, Ludhiana with a lot of religious zeal and fervor. As the story goes, this day, Lord Ram killed Ravana & is symbolic of victory of good over evil.
A huge effigy of Ravana with ten heads was burnt in school playground. The students raised the slogans of “Happy Dusshera” and everyone around enjoyed the serene atmosphere. 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. Students 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 deeds.
Not only this, the tiny tots enjoyed the activity of making ‘Ravana’ and raised the slogan of “celebrating the victory of good over evil”.
Principal Ms. Anju Dhawan addressed the students and told them that the purpose to organize this celebration was actually to make the students aware of the often repeated message i.e the triumph of virtue over the vice. She congratulated the teachers and students for the coming festival season.
