Shishugeet Mahotsav 2017
Shishugeet Mahotsav “ Geetanjali” @ Dr. Kalmadi Shamarao High School, Primary Section
On 8th September 2017, our Primary Section yet again witnessed the Shishugeet Mahotsav. This Mahotsav was initiated in the year 2001. The theme for this year was of Devotion. However, this time the benchmark was set by the language of recitation : Sanskrit. The school has been taking keen interest in accentuating on Sanskrit and children are encouraged to recite Sanskrit Shlokas from the Bhagvad Geeta. Hence, the decision was made with an attempt to enlighten everybody with the importance of our mother language and its wide reach.
This competition was judged by Dr. Mrs. Asha Gurjar who holds a Doctorate Degree in Sanskrit and Mrs. Urvashi Shah who is a renowned vocalist. The Judges and the Management Members were warmly welcomed by the Principal Mrs. Jyothi Kadkol with the Terrarium saplings displaying a cohesive eco friendly belief.
Right from NASA’s declaration of Sanskrit as the best suited computer language to history behind Panchatantra were told. The competition then commenced with children of standard three from 14 different schools coming on stage one after the other and reciting melodious songs in Sanskrit. Inspirational as well as devotional songs came to life. After meticulous evaluation the judges then declared the prizes for the top three recitation.
First Prize was bagged by Abhinav Vidyaliya Eng. Med . School. While the first runners up were Aryan School, Hinjwadi and the second runners up were Dr. Kalmadi Shamarao High School, Ketar Road.
Up next the glimpses of our school activities were displayed on the screen through PowerPoint presentation. The audience was privileged to be enthralled by the melodious voice of Mrs. Urvashi Shah.
The Mahotsav came to an end with the motivating words of the judges and the audience dismissed with a sense of love towards the language.
