Gita Jeyanthi Celebration 2020


  Bhagavat Gita is an important scripture that it can help us to get out of the cycle of birth and death.  If we want to live nobly, successfully and purposefully then the study of the Gita is must.  Gita is the book for living.  We celebrate Gita Jayanthi because Gita contains the philosophy of our culture, of our organization, of our work.

          Mananeeya Eknathji used to study Gita daily.  He brought the whole nation together for the construction of Vivekananda Rock Memorial as per the directions laid out in Gita.

          We started with three ‘Omkaras’ at 9.30 am.  Smt.T.Maheshwari, teacher of VKV invocated and teacher Kum. S.Ajithawelcomed the gathering. All the teachers chanted the 7th, 11th and 15th chapters from Bhagavat Gita. Mann.Krishnamoorthyji, Editor of Vivekavani presided over the function and explained the important aspects of all the 18 chapters. He quoted slokas from each chapter and gave a clear picture of the role of Bhagavat Gita in our life.

          Smt.M.Nalarani, Librarian of VKV presented the vote of thanks. The programme was concluded by Kendra prathana.

Eknathji used to say,

          ‘Opportunities are Duties’.  According to his quote, we utilized this opportunity on Gita Jayanthi, chanted the slokas and got the blessings of Sri Krishna.

Teacher Learning and Development programme

       A motivational camp was arranged for the teachers. Dr.Sundar kumar Gandikota, Founder and CEO, School Education and Management Services- SEAMS, from Hyderabad engaged the teachers during the entire camp.

On 08/12/2020 (10.00 a.m to 12.30 p.m),

Dr.Sundarji started the session by narrating the story of Shri. Vishnu Sharma, a popular  teacher, a  man of 80 years old who wrote the Panchatantra story. Through this story, we could learn moral values such as discipline, diligence, time management, punctuality, etc.

As teachers, we must know  about  the  "Why"  type of question answers. If we inculcate this type of attitude among the students it develops their curiosity to imbibe knowledge.

At the end of the session, Dr.Sundarji quoted Edmund Burke's beautiful quote “Example is the school of  mankind  and  he will learn at no other” .

The second session started with “my success story”. The teachers shared their experience with the students based on students' quality, their response, handling of  the students and characters.
