GANDHI JAYANTI 2018

08 October 2018

The boys of the Scindia School payed tribute to the father of the nation, Mahatma Gandhi on his birth anniversary, by following in his footsteps. What could be a better way of celebrating the life of a person? A community lunch was organised at the School premises, wherein the inhabitants of Sonsa, the village adopted by the School, and the helping staff of the School were invited. It was heart-warming to hear the representatives of the village, who came up and expressed their gratitude towards the Scindia School and shared how their engagement with the School has touched their lives. A special prayer service was organised in the evening, where floral tributes were payed to the Mahatma. The chanting of shlokas created an environment befitting the solemn occasion, an excerpt was read from one of his writings, reminding all of his ethos. The young boys soulfully sang two of his favourites, Vaishnava Jan Toh and Raghupati Raghav, before breaking into silence for introspection.
