Ashmah students enlighten Diwali of blind
Blind people celebrate colorful Diwali
Blinds see colors through eyes of Ashmah school students
Mohali, October 16
The students of Ashmah International School celebrated the festival of lights with inmates of blind school.
Students shared nuances and colors of life with the blind children learning Braille language. Ashmah International School students interacted with blind students of all age groups.
Ashmah International School kids acted, danced and sang songs with these visually challenged children and also distributed sweets, fruits, and wafers among them.
School director Mr J S Kesar said that such visits are a part of ethical value taught to the future generation at the school. “Its yet another way of showing students how they can share feelings with those underprivileged,” he said.
It was an all new experience for the Ashmians who enjoyed the great joy in selfless service. Director Mr. J.S. Kesar also urged teachers and students to celebrate cracker free Diwali.
He said we could enjoy Diwali with candles, lamps, rangolis, flowers rather than noise and smoke filled crackers, which are rather unhealthy for our environment
