Diwali, the festival of lights is celebrated all over India in order to welcome Lord Rama back home after his victory over Ravana.The festival gets its name from the row (avali) of clay lamps (deepa) that we light outside our homes to symbolize the inner light that protects from spiritual darkness
The celebration of Diwali, 'The festival of lights' came alive at Delhi Pubic School, Siddharth Vihar on 16th October when the whole school wore a festive look with Diyas and lanterns adorning the corridors and the assembly hall in bright colours.The Rangoli and Toran Competition conducted for the students added the perfect setting to the festivity. A special assembly was conducted by the students and their songs and dance performances brought out the essence of the festival -celebration of life and goodness. Students talked about the significance of the festival - how good always conquered the evil and also about why and how Diwali is celebrated across India. The students were also sensitized to the ill-effects of crackers via a small play. Our respectable Chairman lit the lamp to conclude the assembly on the auspicious occasion.
