Primary Section Celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi, WIS Malad ( 2015-16).


Ganesh Chaturthi a Hindu festival  celebrates the arrival of Ganesha on earth. Ganesha, the elephant-headed God is believed to be vighnaharta -one who destroys and removes obstacles and blesses us with peace and prosperity.

People celebrate this festival with great pomp and gaiety. The festival lasts for 10 days, ending on Anant Chaturdashi  with Ganesh Visarjan (means idol immersion into water).
Sadly, many of the Lord Ganesh idols are made of plaster of Paris, and decorated with other non biodegradable materials like plastic and chemical paints, which degrades natural ecosystems, on immersion of these idols. A much more appropriate way to celebrate the Ganesha festival is to replace these with idols made of eco friendly materials.

A special assembly was held where students sang the mesmerizing aarti and gave a splendid dance performance praising Lord Ganesha.

During Enrichment Hour students were sensitized to environmental issues and encouraged to think of ways to make Ganesh festival eco friendly. Students of Primary Section, RCL, (Grade I & II) coloured the picture of Ganesha ,  while Grade III to V showed their devotion by preparing Modak  for their dear Bappa.
