Makar Sakranti Celebrated

19 January 2019


Makar Sakranti which marks the beginning of the New Year, as per the Indian tradition was celebrated at the Fort on Tuesday, the 15th of January 2019. The exuberant celebration was accompanied by the customary kite flying session, which was enjoyed by students and staff alike. A group of more than one hundred young ladies of Scindia Kanya Vidhyalaya joined the boys of the Scindia School on the joyous occasion. A variety of food stalls serving delectable traditional Indian flavours ranging from the evergreen South Indian cuisine to the local favourites added to the merrymaking. The Principal, Dr. Madhav Deo Saraswat, who was accompanied by Mrs. Saraswat extended his heartiest greetings to the community and was elated to see the renewed spirits soaring heights along with the colourful kites in the sky. Members of the Senior Management Committee, including the Vice Principal - Pastoral Care, Ms Smita Chaturvedi engaged in an informal interaction with the students. The celebration also provided an opportunity to the assiduous students of the board classes to let themselves loose, after the grilling winter study camp. It was a day well spent, where the members of the Scindia family came together and strengthened their bond further.
