“A man is but a product of his thoughts; what he thinks he becomes.”
On the 152nd Birth Anniversary of the Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi, a spectacular celebration was held at Maxfort School, Rohini in the form of special assembly conducted by the toddlers of Grade II and a plethora of interactive and interesting activities performed enthusiastically by the Maxfortians of Grades PS-III. Mahatma Gandhi or more lovingly known as Bapu by all Indians, is internationally acknowledged for his doctrine of non-violence that led India to its glorious freedom. In order to pay our tributes to the leader of non-violence and to give a deep insight into the life of Mahatma Gandhi, the students articulated Gandhi’s ideology and contributions towards Indian independence and a wonderful skit was presented that captured the attention of one and all present in special morning assembly. It was followed by the splendid performances in speech, music and dance presentations. The students also showcased the glimpses of Gandhiji’s life by sharing the facts about his 3 bandars with the message “See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.” Respected Principal Ma’am, Dr. Ratna Chakravarty enlightened the students while focusing on the message of Gandhiji to follow the path of truth and nonviolence. In her words of wisdom she told the students that 2nd October is also celebrated as International Day of Non-Violence. Honourable ma’am, briefed the students with the true definition of non-violence i.e. we should be peaceful and good to everyone.
A story session and craft activity ‘Making of Spinning Wheel’ was oragnised for the tiny-tots of pre-school. In this activity, our young learners were told the stories about Mahatma Gandhi and they showcased their creativity by making a spinning wheel using different material. The main objective was to remember such a great freedom fighter of India who brought independence for us without any violence and to inspire the little learners by telling them about the father of the nation. All the students of Grade III were mesmerised while hearing about the worthy efforts of Gandhiji for making India Clean and Green and wrote wonderful and inspiring slogans in the remembrance of the sacrifices made for the betterment of the country. There was an amazing feeling of contentment filled with pride when the day ended with a promise to join hands and work towards making a better nation ahead.
