Homecoming of the Vighnaharta
On 13 September, the teachers and students of Amrita Vidyalayam celebrated the auspicious occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi with ardor and great panoply. The principal of the school conducted an elaborate puja and the young learners enthusiastically took part in that. The chanting of the holy mantras in unison transformed the school auditorium into a sanctum sanctorum. Students also staged impressive dance recitals, choir performance and an edifying skit to emphasize the fact that good always prevails over evil. Later, all the teachers took part in a protracted ceremony to invoke the blessings of Lord Ganesha. The day came to a close with a lavish luncheon that the school authority had lovingly arranged for the staff members.
