AKSHARARAMBHAM at Chaitanya Junior

Fascinating traditions and rituals abound in Indian culture. The child’s first step into the realm of formal education which opens up a vast vista of knowledge and wisdom is an important milestone in his or her life. Chaitanya School has always been a pioneer in following traditions that are relevant in today’s world and which parents can observe within the boundaries of their own creed and customs. The Akshararambham or Vidyarambham is the Sanskrit word Akshara + Aarambhamor  Vidhya+ Aarambham which initiates him into reading and writing.

In a colourful ceremony Akshararambham was celebrated in Chaitanya Junior Sector 21 Gandhinagar on 13th June at 9.00 a.m. This occasion was graced by the Director Ms. Elizabeth Koshy ,Trustee Ms. Nalini Ramasubbaroa, Administration head Ms.Mukta Deshpande and Rajayogini Bramhak umari Jayanti and Rajayogini Bramha kumari Meera from Prajapati Bramha Kumari Ishwariya Vishwa Vidyalaya who came to bless the children besides staff and students. Ms Koshy addressed the new parents and explained the meaning of the ceremony. Administration head Ms. Mukta Despande introduced the staff members to the new parents it was followed by a short speech  by Rajayogini B.K Jayanti on good parenting. They requested the new parents to conduct the ritual themselvesas the parent is considered the first teacher. The ceremony itself, involved the lighting of their individual ‘kodiyas’ from the big Lamp of Knowledge. The parents sat with the child on the lap and helpedthem to write their first alphabet on a thali with rice. The  blessing of their “ishtadevta” was invoked as they made the symbols on rice in a thali to signify progressive learning.

The ever popular demonstration of bird calls kept the kids enthralled. The programme culminated with the distribution of prasad and refreshments.
