Marking Dussehra celebration, students wish ‘May the truth always win’ 

Students of Apeejay School, Kharghar burn the effigy of Ravana in the school grounds on the occasion of Vijayadashmi



Indian culture is like a bag full of traditional customs, artefacts and ethical values. And it has always been important to share traditional customs and valuable lessons with the young learners for their overall development. This year, the month of October has started with festivals.

India recently celebrated Navratri (nine-day) festival that concluded with Vijayadashami. In line with the celebrations, students of Apeejay School, Kharghar, also celebrated Vijayadashami to mark the victory of good over evil.

In the spirit of togetherness, the students of Primary section enacted an amazing Ramleela. The tiny tots were taught the valuable and timeless lessons of Ramayana in a beautiful way. It was a musical extravaganza full of excellent heartfelt performances by the students.

Displaying their immense talent, students were dressed up as Lord Rama, Sita, Hanuman, Ravana and several other Gods and Goddess. 

According to Indian culture, ‘Ravan Dehan’ symbolises Lord Ram’s victory over Ravana, meaning victory of good over evil. Aligned with this thought, the young learners burnt the effigy of Ravana in the school ground.

The little ones were full of zeal and enthusiasm during the celebration. Their excitement and happiness could be measured by the smiles on their faces. It was a wonderful fun-filled day for the students.

Talking about the event, Mrs. Tejaswini S. Katdare, Principal of Apeejay School, Kharghar said, “Let only positive thoughts surround us and negative thoughts be burnt with the effigy of Ravana.”
