Durga puja is celebrated across India to worship Goddess Durga. Durga is also called Adi Shakti or the ultimate power. It is a nine-day festival celebrated during autumn. The festival symbolises the victory of Goddess Durga over the demon Mahishasura thus signifying the victory of good over evil.
Durga Puja is also a harvest festival commemorating goddess Durga as the creator of the universe and the provider of food. Thus the students of Ruby Park Public School bowed their head and prayed to the almighty to illuminate their conscience. The students dressed up in colourful attire and some even dressed up as Goddess Durga or her beloved children. The students were narrated and shown the video of the story of Durga Puja and were told about its importance all over the country and especially in Bengal. The students even did artworks on Durga Puja and enjoyed themselves by dancing on the tunes of the ‘Dhaak’.
Ma’am’s byte- Like every year, a special Durga Puja Assembly was arranged by Ruby Park Public School. This assembly marks the beginning of the season of festivity and happiness for all. The main significance of the assembly is to highlight the religious significance of the Hindu festival with a special focus on the mythological story associated with it. The victory of good over evil is the message given to the students. The fervor, enthusiasm, spirit of oneness and happiness in people are beautifully depicted in the assembly.
