Diwali Carnival at Fursungi
Huge open courtyard with pataka decorations, breezy open atmosphere, and stadium seating area facing the courtyard with whole area lit up. It was time for our Walnut School Fursungi to brace the Diwali Carnival. We saw a lot of grandparents in the crowd attending the Carnival, decked in traditional attire, eagerly looking forward for their grandchild’s performance.
Diwali Carnival is the most happening and looked forward to event of Walnut Family! We believe that our children must understand our rich and vibrant traditions. India is a diverse country, and one festival which brings India together on one ground is of course Diwali. Our Walnut students not only participate but are also heavily involved in planning, organizing and scheduling the entire event with help of their teachers and staff members. The event kick started a week prior with ‘Killa’ making competition. Here the students formed small groups of 4-5, building a fort with enthusiastic parents guiding them.
The main highlight of the Diwali Carnival were the Parades. Our event showcased 2 PARADES with entire student body participating in them. We had even involved the KG kids for the first time in the Carnival and they were the one who received the highest accolades for their performance. We had back to back amazing power packed performances like ‘Ganesh Vandana’ ‘Wari’, ‘Lezim’, ‘Dhol Tasha’, ‘Lathi-kathi’ and more. The reason behind including these art forms were to let our students understand the cultural importance, which are becoming age old in this new modern era. The students were performing relentlessly and matching the same enthusiasm as the cheering audience. It was indeed a treat watching them perform!
In all this rush and fervent we had refreshment stalls set up with wide variety ranging from ‘bhel’, ‘masala dosa’ to drinks like apple and mango juices. The stalls were packed with students, parents and even grandparents enjoying them. It was one such memorable evening which was the talk for the following weeks!
