cultural consciousnesses created through spic macay


Cultural heritage is unique and irreplaceable, which places the responsibility of preservation on the current generation.  Preserving one’s culture is significant as it is a manifestation of the freedom of belief and of expression. We must protect our cultural heritage strongly, effectively and unambiguously. In order to achieve this, G .D . Salwan public school organized a yet another endeavor by SPIC MACAY to showcase a beautiful facet of Indian culture, as part of our school’s annual event- VIRASAT.

YOUNG FOLLOWERS OF GANDHI AT NATIONAL ARCHIVES MUSEUM, NEW DELHI



This time the school tried to celebrate Gandhi Jayanti differently by attempting to get the feel of the Gandhian philosophy  through watching an exhibition at National Archives of India on  “ Gandhiji and textile of Peace “  and “ A Satyagrahi of South Africa : Mahatma Gandhi  and Hindi “. An attempt to portray the activities of Gandhiji in South Africa and his support for the cause of Indians in South Africa was very well documented and displayed. The second exhibition was based on khadi and Malkha. This was intended to highlight the products which played a very important role in our freedom struggle and were so dear to the Father of the Nation.

The students had chosen particularly Tribal dances from North –Eastern states, of India- Maharashtra and Bengal. The folk music, thumping of feet and the rhythmic beat of the drums created magical moments. The audience also participated by clapping at the beat of the dances.
