Students of KIIT World School celebrated Krishna Janmashtami, an annual commemoration of birth of the Hindu deity Krishna, the eighth avatar of Vishnu, in the school premises. Pre-Primary students were beautifully dressed up as Krishna and Radha. Images of Krishna’s infancy were placed in a cradle. The school was well decorated for the celebration and aarti and bhajans were recited and songs related to Janmashtami were played. A puja was performed by the staff and children of the school. Fragrance of flowers, soothing aroma of burning camphor and jingle of the bells filled the air. Prasad was distributed to all children after the puja. A small skit, signifying Janmashtami’s message of encouraging good will and discouraging bad will, was shown to kids. Principal Dr.Neelima Kamrah and Headmistress Ms. Rashmi Srivastava while addressing the kids spoke about the importance of the day and various aspects of Krishna’s youthful days, the dahi handi celebration and his playful and mischievous side. She said the holy occasion brought people together and signified unity and faith.
