GANDHI JAYANTI CELEBRATION
In the tapestry of our nation’s history, the thread of Mahatma Gandhi’s vision stands as an unyielding beacon of hope and righteousness. DPS Pune celebrated the auspicious occasion of Gandhi Jayanti on 2 October 2023. The celebration was a collective effort to pause and reflect upon the profound significance of this day. The school campus was decorated with pictures, and quotes depicting the life of Mahatma. A rainbow of events, both solemn and celebratory, were woven together to honour his enduring legacy. The bhajan, “Vaishnav Jana to” followed by an earnest prayer song, mesmerized one and all. Students also paid a befitting tribute to Lal Bahadur Shastri, who shares his birth anniversary with the Father of the Nation.
The programme continued to inspire all with thought-provoking speeches on Satyagraha followed by excerpts from the book “Why Gandhi still matters” by Ram Chandra Guha” and a vibrant tableau showing the evolution of the charkha. The service staff paid their homage by presenting a lively Marathi song “Lag Bag mazhiya rayachi”. To take the programme forward the music department presented the song” Uth ja musafir bhor bhayi” which kept the audience spellbound. The presentation on the poem- Gandhi Ek Vichardhara summed up the diverse ways in which we remember Gandhi, the remarkable soul. The programme culminated when the Head of school, Mrs. Amita Singh, along with the gathering pledged to maintain self-reliance, self-confidence and honesty in their transactions.
