DIWALI AND CHILDREN’S DAY MESSAGE 2020
Light, Oh where is the light? Kindle it with the burning fire of desire! There is a lamp but never a flicker of a flame..is such thy fate my heart? These lines taken from the book, Gitanjali by Rabindranath Tagore will help us reflect in today’s context.
Light, where is the Light? During the lockdown period many have lost their light, may be the only breadwinner of the family is no more due to the virus, or a family member or two have become a victim to this covid-19, some have lost their jobs and our soldiers protecting our borders have sacrificed their lives, so where is the light for these families, who are left in total darkness? Definitely there is a lamp, but what about the oil and the wick? At this juncture, I will not question God, but will seek his grace to do the next best possible I can, to bring a ray of light and hope in someone else’s life, this Diwali. Why don’t we all do something like that? Where there is a will there is a way.
Diwali is certainly the biggest and the brightest festival of lights illuminating houses and every nook and corner of the streets. The celebration brings immense joy, enjoyment and goodness with the victory of God over evil.
Dear teachers and students,
Each one should believe that nothing is impossible;
The more the problems, the greater should be the determination;
The more the darkness, the greater the need for us to be the light;
The more the indifference, the greater should be our sensitivity.
In Bhagwat Gita it is said: All the lights of the world cannot compare to a single ray of inner light, the light that exists within each of us, the light of the Almighty. Let us plunge into this light of wisdom, love, faith and reach the pinnacle of his glory.
May God bless each one of you and your family members with peace, joy and prosperity. Let us celebrate Diwali as a Green Diwali this year. May the 1000 lights dispel the corona virus from the face of the earth. Happy Diwali.
May dear children, today is Children’s day, so here I am to wish you a very happy Children’s day. We celebrate today the birth anniversary of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. He was considered to be a strong statesman who too wanted that young minds like you should grow and achieve great heights.
As this day is dedicated to you, I must say that each one of you is so precious and unique bringing more love in this world. My dream is to see your dreams come true. See yourselves as good human beings, never allow negative thinking to influence your personality.
Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, our former President once said.. the best brains of the nations may be found on the last benches of the classrooms…Dear students, believe in yourselves, and you will do wonders in life. You play a very important role in our lives. Life is all about learning new things and moving ahead in life. On the occasion of Children’s day, I wish you progress, success and happiness in life.
You have the potential to transform tomorrow and I believe in you. Happy Children’s Day. God bless you. Let us continue to pray that God may protect everyone from the deadly virus. Be safe.
