Deepawali or Diwali is certainly the biggest and the brightest of all Hindu festivals. It’s the festival of lights (deep = light and avali= a row i.e., a row of lights) that’s marked by four days of celebration, which literally illumines the country with its brilliance, and dazzles all with its joy.
Children of Buddhi, celebrated Diwali with devotion, enthusiasm and excitement. Weeks of preparing for this most looked forward to festival; the school was tastefully decorated with hand-made lanterns, crackers, rangoli on CD and diyas. Children in colourful ethnic clothes added charm to the atmosphere of the school. The children dressed up as different characters from the Ramayana enchanting all. Various scenes from the life of Lord Rama were presented through the form of drama and dance. The senior children enlightened all with little notes of why Diwali is celebrated.
Welcoming the festival of lights, staff of Buddhi lit lamps. The children chose the menu that day. Bhel was made for snacks and poori, palak paneer, jeera rice and laddoo was made for lunch. It was a fun-filled day for all.
