Artistic showcase: Charkhi Dadri school hosts poster making competition

Through their creativity, students raise awareness about the remarkable life and principles of Swami Vivekanand



Education holds a deeper significance than the mere accumulation of information. It is a transformative process that shapes individuals, instils character, and imparts noble ideals. This philosophy was profoundly advocated by Swami Vivekananda, who emphasised the importance of education in man-making, life-giving, and character-building. Swami Vivekananda, synonymous with strength, boldness, and courage remains an influential figure in inspiring learners to delve deeper into his life and teachings.

In line with this vision, Apeejay School, Charkhi Dadri recently organised an inter-class poster making competition for students of Classes 6 to 8. The competition, held as part of the Vivekananda Study Circle Programme, aimed to enlighten students about the remarkable life and principles of Swami Vivekananda.

The event witnessed the enthusiasm and creativity of students, who eagerly participated in the competition. A large number of students from the above-mentioned classes came forward to showcase their artistic skills and express their deep admiration for the life and teachings of Swami Vivekananda.

Under the guidance of their teachers, the students prepared diligently for the competition. They studied the life and philosophy of Swami Vivekananda, gaining a deeper understanding of his teachings and the impact he had on society. Armed with this knowledge, all the participants poured their creativity and drew beautiful posters while bringing to life their interpretations of Swami Vivekananda’s life and his principles.

The posters created by the students were truly remarkable, reflecting their passion and dedication. Each artwork depicted different aspects of Swami Vivekananda’s life, showcasing his teachings, quotes, and significant milestones. The posters were a vibrant display of colours, captivating imagery, and thought-provoking messages. It was evident that the students had put in immense effort to ensure their posters conveyed the essence of Swami Vivekananda’s teachings.

The judging panel including the faculty members faced a challenging task in evaluating the posters. However, after careful consideration, the judges selected the top three posters.

Rajashree Basak from class 7 secured the first position with her exceptional poster. Her artwork was a masterpiece, capturing the essence of Swami Vivekananda’s philosophy with its intricate details and powerful imagery. Riyansi from class 6 achieved the second position with a poster that conveyed a strong message of self-belief and determination. The third position was shared by Dia Mittal from class 7 and Pallavi from class 6 who drew visually striking and insightful posters.

While congratulating all the participants and winners of the competition, Mr. Rudrendra Basak, Principal of Apeejay School Charkhi Dadri, expressed his admiration for the profound beliefs of Swami Vivekananda. He stated, “Swami Vivekananda always emphasised that education should provide spiritual awareness, leading to greater strength and self-confidence.” He further added, “Swami Vivekananda firmly believed that education is something more than merely passing examinations and getting some employment.”

Mr. Basak emphasised that the event was not just a competition, but a valuable opportunity for students to delve deeper into the life and teachings of Swami Vivekananda. He encouraged the students to carry forward the lessons they had learned and apply them in their own lives, becoming agents of positive change in society.

This event was not just a showcase of artistic talent, but a celebration of Swami Vivekananda’s timeless wisdom and principles. It served as a powerful reminder of the transformative power of education and the enduring influence that remarkable individuals like Swami Vivekananda have on the lives of students.
