The Festival of Lights, as with most ancient legends, helps us to know the truth of victory of good over evil. It specifically commemorates the return of Lord Rama to his kingdom Ayodhya, at the end of his exile which lasted for 14 years. On Thursday, 27th October 2016, the teachers of Early Years presented a short musical skit on this ancient legend. The skit was followed by a lively interaction. Children asked the teacher, as why Ravana had 10 heads? They were informed that the ten heads indicated ten emotions such as lust, anger, delusion, greed, pride, envy, the mind, intellect, will and ego. These ten heads of Ravana was controlled by his actions which led to his ultimate destruction. Further the children were informed one should try to conquer these ten emotions for a happy and satisfied life. Children were also sensitised and encouraged to avoid bursting crackers as this leads to air as well as sound pollution. Each one promised the teacher that they would avoid bursting crackers as it’s harmful to all living things and pollution generators. The day ended with helping their teachers to decorate the class with paper lanterns and crafts.
