Garba Raas At WIS Pawan Baug 2014-2015

On Saturday, the 27th of September, Witty International School, Pawan Baug, celebrated Navratri with a ‘Garba Raas’ program. Garba — which is the expression of merriment through energetic song and dance was enjoyed by all students. Students from Grade VIII to A Level, came to school dressed in traditional clothes, wearing a smile on their excited faces.

From 10 a.m. to 12 noon, the day was solely for Wittians to enjoy their Navratri. Dandiya which is a traditional Indian folk dance for men and women was celebrated in great style at Witty International School, Pawan Baug. Dandiya is a mesmerizing poetry of human movements in tune to captivating rhythmic beats, intermittent jingling sound of bells, clattering of sticks and electrifying flow of colours and light.

The children formed different circles dancing to the fullest, tapping their feet to the fervent beats of garba and dandiya wishing that Goddess Durga bestows on all of them wealth, auspiciousness, prosperity, knowledge, and other potent powers to cross every hurdle of life. And who does not like to tap their feet when hearing those catchy rhythmic beats which are so captivating to both the ears and feet? The dance steps were quite simple making it more fun for the children to explore different dance steps along with the teachers. 

The Principal of the School, Mr Bijo Kurian rightly said, “Festivals are an integral part of our Indian culture and we at Witty International School want to teach the students the importance of our traditions and the value of festivals to foster bonds of brotherhood, friendship and solidarity.” Truly the day was full of colour, joy, festivity and enthusiasm.
