The festival season in India is long drawn and offers excellent opportunity to relate to Indian traditions. Dussehra celebration is one of the most exciting events in Indian festival calendar which should be aptly utilised to sensitise students towards Indian values. Keeping the festive spirit alive, Dussehra was celebrated on 17th October at Delhi Public School, Mysore with fervour and ardour.
The primary objective of the celebration was to convince the students that no matter how intelligent a person is, his pride will be the reason of his collapse. The students learnt about Indian mythology and importance of the festival. Varied activities like mask making, drawing, colouring and wealth out of waste were conducted to reinforce the message – Triumph of virtue over vice.
