Janamshtami – the sacred occasion that marks the birth anniversary of Lord Krishna was the theme of Grade VI Assembly. Krishna is an incarnation (avatar) of Lord Vishnu. He being the incarnation of Vishnu saved and preserved Dharma from evil. It was he who delivered the message of the Bhagavad Gita, the holy book of Hindus.

The assembly began with the morning school prayer followed by news read by one of our scholar and the thought for the day shared by another. Lord Krishna’s feats were depicted by the scholars right after through a dance performance. The scholars then sang a devotional song in praise of his praise.

The not to miss moment of the assembly was when our Non-Scholastic facilitators depicted the famous “Dahi Handi” scene – an event is based on the legend of the child-god Krishna stealing butter. Our HOD Sports dressed as Lord Krishna danced and swayed to the tune synonymous to Dahi Handi standing atop a human pyramid formed by the other facilitators. The culmination of the Dahi Handi was he eventually breaking the earthen pot a replica of a Dahi Handi (a pot filled with curd) tied at a convenient height.
