Year after year, 2nd October revives the memory of a larger than life man – MAHATMA GANDHI. The life ideals and contribution of Bapu, father of the nation makes us bow our heads in reverence and humility. The sixth graders at Shalom Presidency School conducted a special assembly to celebrate the birth anniversary of Gandhi ji. The thought of the day was about the idea of non-violence which is the backbone of Gandhi’s ideals and teachings. After a brief life history of the Mahatma, his Satyagraha Movement was explained in detail. The children performed the dance drama, Gandhi – Ek Yatra. They beautifully depicted the three phases of his life-childhood, realization of the purpose of his life and his leadership to free his country. The programme ended with Bapu’s favourite song, ‘Ragupati raghav raja ram…..’ We wish that the children evoke the Gandhi within .
