‘The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong’
…Mahatma Gandhi

Mahatma Gandhi, whose birthday is celebrated every year on 2nd October, was a diminutive man, with an indomitable will ! To celebrate this day a special assembly was conducted on 4th October, 2017 in the School Hall wherein Sanidhya, Ridhanshi, Arihant & Atharv of the Kindergarten Class presented famous quotes of Mahatma Gandhi and Arna and Naitik also from KG recited poems‘ Pyare Bapu’ and ‘Oh! Great leader Gandhiji.’ Ms Charu Verma showed a presentation on his life and elaborated on his principles and ideologies of truth, honesty, non-violence, peace, patience, unity, equality, cleanliness and simplicity. The students were shown three clippings from an animated movie reflecting the childhood years of Gandhiji. The Branch Head, Ms. Mehra, summed up the presentation which the students had witnessed with an inspiring poem on ‘Bapuji’ as he is so fondly remembered by us all !

सत्य, अहिंसा को अपनाया,
दीन-दुखी को गले लगाया,
अंग्रेजों को मार भगाया,
जग से न्यारे बापूजी |
हम उनकी बातें अपनाएँ,
सच्चाई को धर्म बनाएँ,
इस दुनिया में नाम कमाएँ |’

All present, joined in his favourite hymn ‘ रघुपति राघव राजाराम, पतित पावन सीताराम ‘ played at the end, most devotionally.
