The brightness and warmth of light pervaded the St. Xavier’s school campus on Saturday. The teachers and students celebrated Diwali, the festival of light.


The program began with prayers to the almighty. After Fr. Melvin CJ, Principal and sisters lighted the traditional lamp, in a gesture of inclusiveness, students were called to light the Diyas. With beautiful rangoli made by the students and the lighted Diyas the whole campus came to life in a mesmerizing shimmer. A comic play was presented that conveyed the message that seems to have been forgotten “Diwali is a festival of Light, not crackers “Xav’s Band presented a fabulous musical interlude. Fr. Melvin CJ, Principal in his message stressed that this Diwali we should all imbibe not only the glitter of the lights but also the warmth of love, of family and friends. It was a truly entertaining and inspiring programme.
