Tyohaar ek par naam anek

The students of Gitanjali Devashray, grade 1 C celebrated the harvest festival of Makar Sankranti with a great joy and  fervour today. 

Every state in India celebrates this harvest festival brimming with local tradition and though each state gives this festival a different name with celebrations rich with different folk dances with all partaking in different delicacies associated with the festival but there is a single thread of being Indian which binds them all together.

The colourful  program concluded with the children taking an oath to Not to waste Food.

The grade 1 students spoke with a lot of confidence and the  traditional colourful  costumes,  music, decor  and dance made Makar Sankranti Celebrations assembly a memorable one.
