Whose laughter is subtle,
Who glows with luster,
Who always attracts people’s mind
And the one who plays the melodious flute,
I bow down to Lord Krishna.
Janmashtami, popularly known as Shri Krishna Janmashtami is the day when Lord Krishna, the eighth incarnation of the Lord Vishnu was born in Mathura to Devaki and Vasudeva. Maxfort School, Rohini under the able guidance of our honourable Principal ma’am
Dr. Ratna Chakravarty celebrated Shri Krishna Janmashtami with great fervour and zeal in the school premises.
Wherever there is Krishna, the master of all mystics, there will also certainly be opulence, victory, extraordinary power and morality. To surface this intensity, special assemblies were organised on 17 and 18 August 2022. Respected Principal ma’am set the assemblies in motion by worshiping little laddu Gopal ji and offering prayer to bring peace, happiness and prosperity in our lives.
Grade XII presented special assembly on Wednesday, 17 August 2022. The students of Grades IX-XII attended this joyous moment. Our guiding light, honourable Principal ma’am shared her treasured words with our learners igniting the power of righteousness and self-belief. Respected Principal ma’am quoted the famous shloka ‘Karmanye vadhika raste, Ma phaleshu kadachana’ from Bhagavad Gita. Lord Krishna explains to Arjuna the theory of Karmas. He said believe in yourself and do your Karma (action) and success will follow you automatically. Doing Karma is in our hands only, result is not in our hands. The students were encouraged to embrace the teachings of Lord Krishna and bring them into practice to lead a prosperous life.
A spectacular skit presenting Shri Krishna’s sharing of eternal knowledge with the Pandava brother ‘Arjuna’ showing self-realisation was of great significance. The school choir group filled all present with melody of love and evoked our faith in the lord by pious songs. A frolic dance performance by girls dressed as Gopis with Lord Krishna holding a flute in his hand and wearing a peacock feather on his head was a delight to the eyes.
