Patriotic and devotional blend as Ashmah International School
I-day and Janmashtami celebrated at Ashmah International School
Mohali, August 13
The students of Ashmah International School celebrated Independence day and Janmashtami at the school premises today.
Principal Ms. Roopinder Ghuman said that youth are the future of our country. To sensitize young minds towards realization of duties and responsibilities, school authorities decided to celebrate both significant days together.
Students were celebrated Independence Day with thrill, on other side enjoyed Janmashtami with devotion. They were told about significance of Independence day and the way thousands of people laid down their lives so that we can live peacefully.
On the occasion of Janmashtami, they came dressed up as Radha and Krishna, while observing I-day they donned the attires of Bhagat Singh, Subhash Chander Bose, Mahatma Gandhi and filled the atmosphere with patriotic spirit.
Students sang and danced to the tunes of hum hindustani and Aaj radha ko shyam yaad aa gaya. The wonderful blend of patriotism and devotion was worth watching.
Ms. Ghuman added that we must remember our leaders who sacrificed their lives for our freedom and happiness. She also guided children about Lord Krishna’s life and his teachings, which shed light on the realities of life and devotion.
