Ganesh Chaturthi at Ramakrishna Senior Secondary School

Festivals build group cohesiveness. Festivals inform,educate,bring people together, break the monotony  of routine and give us a chance to re-energize our body, mind, and spirit. Of all the festivals,Ganesh Chaturthi is the most colourful. Ganesh Chaturthi is a Hindu festival that marks the birthday of Lord Ganesha. 

People believe that Lord Ganesha, the symbol of wisdom bestows his presence on Earth during this festival and remove their obstacles. With such belief, Ramakrishna Senior Secondary School organised various activities on the auspicious occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi through virtual mode. The sole purpose of the celebration was to let the students stay rooted with Indian culture and to enable them to understand the significance of this festival.

The celebrations began with a phenomenal dance performance by the little blooming Ramakrishnanians of class1. The graceful expressions given by the tiny tots on a devotional song were really breathtaking and won the hearts of the audience. There was devotion, creativity and fun altogether.

Devanshi of class IX delivered a speech in her virtual class in which she stated that people celebrate this festival with great zeal and enthusiasm. She spoke about the beauty of this festival. The speaker in her address highlighted that the true essence of Ganesh Chaturthi lies in the fact that the devotees worship Ganesha to rid their lives of all the sins and substitute them with knowledge and wisdom. 

“Everything that has a beginning ,has an ending. 

              Make your peace with that and all will be well.”
