ASSEMBLY REPORT ON JANAMASHTMI(CLASS III-C)
The students of class III-C conducted an assembly on the occasion of Janamashtmi. Janamashtmi is celebrated all over India as the birthday of Lord Krishna.
The assembly began with the morning Prayer followed by the news headlines and the thought for the day “Krishna insisted on Outer Cleanliness and Inner Cleansing. Clean Clothes and Clean Minds are an ideal combination.”
Students enlightened everybody about the festival, its significance and how it is celebrated in different parts of India:
Hindus celebrate Janmashtami by fasting and staying up until midnight, the time when Krishna is believed to have been born. Statues of baby Krishna are placed in a cradle in temples and homes. Janmashtami is celebrated as Dahi Handi in Maharashtra. People make a human pyramid and break an earthen pot filled with buttermilk, which is tied at a considerable height. The topmost person tries to break the handi by hitting it with a blunt object.
In Northern India, places like Mathura, Gokul and Vrindavan that are associated with Krishna’s childhood, attract visitors from all over India.
Students of Class III C dressed up like Krishna and Radha. Many girls dressed up like gopis. Students performed a beautiful and colorful dance to the tunes of the song “Wo Kisna Hai” which was liked by all. The assembly concluded with the National Anthem.
