Ganesh Festivities take Centre-Stage
Lord Ganesha arrives every year with a lot of happiness and departs with abundant blessings. At DPS, Nashik, Ganesh Utsav was celebrated with a lot of zeal and zest like every year.
The Lord was welcomed in traditional dhol pathak style. Ganesh sthapna on Chaturthi was done by the Director, Mr. Siddharth Rajgarhia and his family. The eco-friendly Ganesha idol was prepared by the school’s Art teachers and students. Each Grade performed the Ganesh Aarti and offered prasad to the Lord of Wisdom on different days. These ceremonies brought the students together for prayers wherein the Principal, Dr. Pushpy Dutt spread the message that everyone should seek blessings from Lord Ganesha to become a better human being. Shri Bhausaheb Gite and his wife- members of Grampanchayat, Manori, were welcomed as guests on 22nd September 2018.
Mahaprasad was organised for all the teachers and support staff of the school. Many activities including one-minute games and musical chairs were conducted by Ms. Charul Verma and Ms. Nishita Majithia, which added to the fun and frolic.
To bid Ganesha an eco-friendly goodbye, Visarjan was done in the school campus. The students also pledged to protect Mother Earth.
This eleven-day-long celebration was indeed a break from the monotonous routine, which refreshed and energised the school students and staff.
