Marathi Diwas Celebration at Witty International School Pawan Baug (2017-18).

Marathi Bhasha Divas was celebrated in Witty International School, Pawan Baug, in honour of the Marathi language and in keeping with the birth anniversary of Dyanpeeth award winner poet, Late V.V. Shirwadkar or famously known as ‘Kusumagarj’.
Marathi being the official language of the State of Maharashtra, the main focus of this celebration is to promote the Marathi culture among the Wittians. The students viewed power point presentations, videos of famous Maharashtrian authors, poets, culture, art etc to enrich themselves with the rich Maharashtrian culture.  A special assembly was conducted by the students of Grade VII to highlight the importance of Marathi in our state.
Students danced to the traditional beats of Dhol-Tasha to perform the native dance of Maharashtra, Lavni. On the other hand, children also sung various peoms and prayer songs written by famous Marathi poets. Speeches were also given in the state language, Marathi, to enable the students to be equipped with the richness of this heritage language. A skit depicting the killing of Mughal commander Afzal Khan by Shivaji Maharaj, an important chapter in Maratha history, was enacted by the students on the occasion. Through the celebration the children learnt to appreciate this beautiful language and the significance of this day.
The day stands for the pride of Maharashtra and the Marathi language. The new generation must understand the importance of the language. To keep its heritage alive among school students, this day should be celebrated. Shivaji Maharaj is the pride of Maharashtra and we should learn his ways of administration and governance and should also imbibe his valour, wit and brilliance,” said the School Principal, Mr Bijo Kurian.
