Gandhi Jayanti - Celebration 2019

Gandhi Jayanti Program at Trishul NGO 

Gandhi's idea of non-violence was to live and help others to live. Helping others to live mutual respect should become foundation of our life. We are living in a society, where violence and terrorism have become the order of the day.

Celebrating Gandhi Jayanti was a collaborative initiative of TLC (Trishul Learning Center) faculty and children together. This activity based program helped children in understanding and experiencing why Gandhiji is called the Father of the Nation. How he got transformed from an ordinary man to Mahatma and what laid foundation that snow balled into a revolution that ultimately led to our country becoming independent and free country. A country that went on to become largest democracy in the world.

Highlights of the program

TLC faculty mentored children perform street play script based on Dandi March; children sang songs, recited poems and speech on Gandhiji, and demonstrated a simple but effective strategy for waste management. 

It was great feeling to see each and every student take initiative and participate in their own ways, some acted, some sang , some prepared the props. A was a collaborative team work between children and TLC team. 

We had a small snack party after the function.

The smile, enthusiasm and passion expressed by children gave us a sense of pride. We all had an amazing time.

We also had a small session on cleanliness and waste management (a foundation of this revolution was originally laid by Mahatma Gandhi. Mahatma Gandhi believed that a strong country could only be built on the shoulders of cleanliness. Swachh Bharat Mission was launched as an apolitical movement to uphold the Gandhian thought and bring about a cleanliness revolution in the country.
