Pre-primary children put up an eclectic display of artistic talent

The little ones of Apeejay School, Panchsheel Park, recently celebrated Janmashtami at school



Celebrating the birth of Lord Krishna, children from the pre-primary wing of Apeejay School, Panchsheel Park, came together to participate in various Janmashtami-themed cultural activities at school.

The little ones decked up in colourful attire on the occasion. The little ones showed love and devotion through a tableau presentation. The tableau showed glimpses of the life of little Krishna.

The day was filled with eclectic performances as well, from a dramatic enactment to ecstatic dance. They also showcased their creative and artistic skills—children made paper flutes in class and decorated them. Kindergarten students, on the other hand, carried earthen pots to school and then painted and decorated them as well. Some children also dressed up as Radha and Krishna.

Some of the classes were also asked to write letters to Kanha. Besides, the little Apeejayites chanted the holy name of Krishna and recited Geeta Saar, or the essence of Bhagavad Gita. The day was filled with joy and excitement.

Parents were also invited to the programme and were thrilled to see their children perform.

Janmashtami typically falls in August or September. It is celebrated every year on the eight tithi (Ashtami) of Krishna Paksha in the month of Shravana as per the Hindu calendar. The festival celebrates the birth of Krishna, the eighth avatar of Vishnu. While it is celebrated in various parts of the country, grand celebrations are particularly held in Mathura and Vrindavan.
