The festival of Guru Purnima was celebrated with at our school. There were special assemblies dedicated to the teachers, the ‘gurus’ to mark the event replete with speeches and songs.
Speeches and shlokas were read out from the Gita and the puranas which highlighted the importance of the Guru in our lives. One of the most important lines from the speeches is given below:
‘This Guru Purnima, reflect on your life and honour the wisdom that life has offered. It is a day to be grateful. When you see how wisdom has transformed your life, you feel grateful for allthat has come your way. Celebrating this feeling of gratitude is Guru Purnima.’
Principal Mrs.Sujata Tandon made the students aware of the fact that everyday could be Guru Purnima in their lives when they honour what life has taught them. Wisdom is there in each and every one of us, but we must throw light on our life, because when we throw light on our life, wisdom dawns.
