Diwali is a festival of lights and the diyas are God’s way of telling us that there will always be light to drive away darkness. It marks the return of Lord Rama from fourteen years of exile and his victory over the demon Ravana. Students of grade 5 presented a special assembly on Diwali. The assembly started with the morning prayer. Students encouraged everyone to share and care. They spread the message of friendship and equality through a small skit where they enacted ‘no riches and no poors’. The students presented a colourful dance performance on the song ‘aayo re shubh din aayo re’. The students were motivated to burst only green crackers. The assembly concluded with the National Anthem.
