The festival of lights marks the triumph of good over evil, and is widely believed to mark the return of Lord Ram to Ayodhya after vanquishing the demon King Ravana.

The students were enlightened with the significance of the 5 day festival highlighting the importance of each day presented with the help of enactment and oration. Students from all the grades participated to treat the audience with their wonderful performances. One could also witness the beautiful rangoli decking up with floral garlands.

She also illuminated the thought of celebrating a Green Diwali and develop in each one of us the sensitivity towards nature.
