The purpose of this festival was to show faith in God in the students and to develop spiritual qualities in them. The little children came dressed in the costumes of the Shiva family Shri Ganesha, Lord Shiva, and Maa Parvati and showed their reverence and faith towards God. On this occasion, a special prayer meeting was organized in the school in which the importance of the Shivratri festival was explained to the children.
The children presented a mesmerizing dance on the hymns of Lord Shiva. Mahamrityunjaya Mantra was recited in the assembly and a speech was given by the students at the Shivratri festival. Mrs. Sharmila Nakra (Deputy Director of Cultural Affairs) told that Mahashivratri is not only a festival but also a symbol of unwavering faith in religion in every countryman. This inculcates a sense of theism in children and develops faith, devotion, and spirituality towards God.
