BBSBM, Mehrauli, conducts various activities for students
To celebrate India’s various festivals and unity in diversity, Baba Banda Singh Bahadur Memorial (BBSBM) Sec. School, Mehrauli, organised a plethora of activities on the theme titled Colours of India under the aegis of its principal Anju Amandeep Grover and coordinators Soniya Sharma, Arnica Gupta and Gurpreet Kaur.
As all our academic and co- curricular activities are aimed towards a holistic development of each student, these activities were planned to enlighten the students about the rich heritage and culture of our motherland India. A well-charted framework of activities had been designed under various categories such as speaking, acting, creative skills covering all the major festivals of India like Diwali, Janmashtami, Christmas, Gurupurab, Eid, Dussehra etc. in which students showcased their talent exuberantly. The school’s main motto behind organising those activities was to make its students realise deep in their hearts and minds that in India we celebrate the commonality of major differences and that we are a land of belonging rather than of blood.
India is very rightly classified as a country of festivals as various kinds of festivals are celebrated in this country. Indian culture is the most complex and colourful culture on the planet. The way people look, their language, their food, their way of dressing, and their music and dance -- everything changes every fifty or hundred kilometres in this country. All these different cultures and religions get tied together in bonds of love with these invisible threads of celebrations.
