"Kai-Po-Chhe" at Chaitanya
Celebrations were once again in full swing on 10th
of January 2014 to mark Chaitanya's 10th Anniversary.
The lovely and spacious campus of Chaitanya at Lekawada was full
of fun and excitement as the children got a double dose of kite-
flying in a pre- Uttarayan celebration with their school
big and small cradled their kites, and armed with
‘phirkis’ hurried to the grounds, impatient to get
their kites up. Soon the sky was vibrant with colour
as the frisky kites, bowed and danced in the gentle
breeze. The children shouted with mounting
excitement and joy as they tugged at their kite
strings. The ones watching, eyes wide with wonder
and astonishment were equally excited as spectators.
The competitive kite fighting enhanced anticipation
and the thrill of a battle in the skies. The shouts
of "Kai-Po-Chhe" was the battle cry every time a
kite was cut. Like always, the spirit of healthy
competition prevailed as winners and losers cheered
exultantly. It was interesting to see the teachers
participate with identical fervor.
The children reluctantly packed their bags at the end
of the session. Another memory stored of the fun they had in the
"Kai-Po-Chhe" Celebrations at Chaitanya.
