Vijayadhasami marks the end of Navaratri festival and this day signifies the victory of good over evil and the time for all positive beginnings.
Vidhyarambham is a Hindu tradition observed on Vijayadhasami day all over India. On this day, the children are introduced into the world of knowledge, letters and process of learning.
In our school, Vidyarambham celebration began on the fine morning of 15.10.2021 at 8.45 a.m. The ritual was initiated by Shri. R.Manikumar, teacher of Vivekananda Kendra Vidyalaya with 3 Om’ Karas and ShanthiManthra. The welcome address was delivered by Smt.T.Maheswari, teacher of Vivekananda Kendra Vidyalaya. Vidyarambham was carried out by Mann. Rekha Didi, Joint General Secretary of Vivekananda Kendra. Mann. Rekha Didi held the right index finger of the children and made them write ‘Om’ on the fistful of rice placed in a large plate. She delivered a beautiful oration highlighting the importance of the day. She quoted the legendary hero, Swami Vivekananda who has sheltered in the minds of the people and is revered equal to God for his strong will power, positivity of thought and his valuable message. She insisted us to have positive thoughts spread positive vibrations among the children, and guide them to unfold the obstacles that hinder their progress. The Pooja was performed by Smt.M.Nalarani, the Librarian of Vivekananda Kendra Vidyalaya. The floral obeisance was paid to Goddess Saraswathi by all the participants. Vote of thanks was proposed by Smt. K.Kavitha, teacher of Vivekananda Kendra Vidyalaya.
