Sweeter than honey, tastier than curd, pleasanter indeed than any happiness and joy is the company, is the power of the name of Krishna. The birthday of Lord Krishna is celebrated with great devotion and enthusiasm, on this Janmashtami day, in India.
On Saturday, 24th of August 2019, the boarding students of Taurian World School celebrated Janmashtami with great vivaciuosness. First thing in the morning they geared up for hosing down the stable and dairy farm as part of Shramdaan Activity on this day. After cleaning the cow shed, they unsoiled themselves and had a sumptuous lunch. Later in the evening, the boarders and the resident teachers gathered in the assembly hall for a Bhajan Sandhya. A splendidly colorful program was organized by the Music Department. An awareness on Janmashtami, the mythological stories on Krishna, Radha, Kansh – through plays and narrations; were also presented.
This holy occasion brings people together, thus signifying unity and faith.
On Sunday, 25th of August 2019, the boarders were taken out for an inspiration movie “Mission Mangal” which was recently released. The movie loosely follows the scientists at Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) who contributed to the Mars Orbiter Mission, India’s first interplanetary expedition. The students enjoyed the movie to the fullest but also got a fair idea on how our scientists actually plan and execute the space missions. Later in the evening, classes for Science, Commerce and Humanities was organized for Grade XII and preparatory classes were setup in the hostel for other students.
