Diwali, a celebration of light and hope, is considered as one of our national festivals, which conveys the promising moral idea, ‘victory of good over evil’. India usually celebrate this luminous festival with lighting up ‘Dia’ and bursting fire crackers up, thanks to their symbolic meanings- Light of ‘Dia’ gets rid of darkness of ignorance and fire crackers are burst to drive away bad spirits. The word ‘Diwali’ is an abbreviation of the word “Deepavali” which means ‘row of lamps’. In this inspiring festive mood, Vydehi School of Excellence, Bangalore celebrated their Diwali day on 8th November, this year.
The event saw great enthusiasm from both students of primary and pre primary section and teachers as they celebrated it with Dias(lamps), Rangoli(flower carpet) and candles. To add more fun to the event, teachers and students made their own customized candles and Diyas. An interesting ballet which showcased the life of Lord Rama till he returned to Ayodhya was presented by LKG children as the myth behind Diwali is the victory of Lord Rama over Raavana. Play school children had frolicking fun, participating in the ballet which told the greatest legend of all times. The message of ‘the ultimate victory of good over evil’ is conveyed through the ballet. Kids were dressed up in ancient-style clothes to present the ballet with originality and the impact of the ballet on the audience was overwhelming. All students were really excited to be a part of this lustrous celebration. Teachers and LKG students made a huge flower carpet, which heightened the flavor of the festive ambience.
