Why Having Faith Is So Important In Times Of Crisis

Faith helps us wade through the darkness and is a source of strength in times of weakness. To make students aware of the power of faith, Apeejay School, Pitampura organised a session of online programme called Apeejay@Cares4u’.

The session started with a soulful prayer. Rishita Sharma, a class 5 student, then presented an endearing short story through a puppet.  Students are exposed to screen a lot nowadays and one of the best ways to maintain eye health is through regular exercise. Yoga teacher, Ms. Natasha Garg, demonstrated simple eye exercises to reduce eye strain and strengthen eye muscles.  She said “The face is a picture of the mind with the eyes as its interpreter. So it’s important to take care of your eyes.”  

Students were then treated with hilarious rib-tickling short videos. Ms. Abha Jhuman narrated an inspiring tale, ‘Victory of faith’. She said, “Faith is a power that lets you complete herculean tasks and without faith even small tasks seem overwhelming.” Alumnus Rohan Sharma played melodious tunes on his synthesiser.  

Vijeta, from class 5, showed a beautiful piece of art demonstrating the power of faith. She said, “Having faith doesn’t always need prayers and an idol.  It can be practised from within. When you have faith in God you don’t worry about your future because you already know that it’s in his hands. You just go and do your best. Likewise, when you have faith in your doctor you surrender your body to him and undergo surgery. You know that God will protect you through the hands of a surgeon. So, have faith.” 

Nayasha Mathur from class 2 and her mother Neha Mathur demonstrated how to talk to your children about COVID-19 in a way that’s reassuring and helps them understand, cope and even make a positive contribution for others.

Mr. Randhir left everyone spellbound and enthralled by playing horse beat with variations on Tabla. He also played Keherwa Taal, used in Punjab folk dances, to perfection.  Ms. Mudita Grover narrated an old Chinese Folktale, The Empty Pot, by Demi. The story contained an important lesson about patience, honesty and strength within oneself.

Hospital workers and medical staff members are leading the battle against Covid-19 from the front, putting their own lives at risk. They are truly our heroes in these challenging times. To pay tribute to our Covid Warriors, students gave a mesmerising dance performance to bring this exciting session to an end. 

To have faith is to trust yourself to the water. When you swim you don’t grab hold of water, because if you do you will sink and drown. Instead you relax, and float. Have faith and work.
