PONGAL CELEBRATIONS

Pongal, the Harvest Festival of Tamil Nadu was celebrated on 11th January, 2019 with great Zest and Zeal in the Main School and Vatika premises.

The students of Std. V and Std I hosted the Celebration respectively in both the premises much to the merriment of the other students.

The traditionally decorated stage captured the ambience of the scenic village side with its lush green fields, stalks of sugarcane, bullock cart cut outs, mud pots, flower carpets and Rangoli.

A variety of cultural programmes performed by the students of Std. II to VI ushered in the spirit of Pongal that marks the beginning of 'Thai' month. The four day festivity was brought alive with great pomp.

Sai Tarun of Std. IV gave a melodious start to the day with a violin recital on the Gayathri Mantra and Lingashtakam.

An informative speech on the Harvest Festival celebrated across the length and breadth of India was rendered by eloquent students.

Scintillating folk dances by the energetic 'Village Belles'  brought out the mood and colours of the festival. The racy performances combined with the rhythmic folk beat filled the air with excitement.

The 'Tamizh Naatupurapaadal’ was an auditory treat that left the audience swaying to the ' thaalam' and 'melam'.

The traditional attires, squeals and peals of laughter, the aroma of the pongal dessert together with the folk music gave a thorough feel of the rural aura during the celebration of  Pongal Festival.
