Amidst performances, games, magic, and of course, food – the grand Carnival “Uphaar” was a super hit affair. The school quadrangle looked nothing short of a wonderland. The stalls ranged from that of a photo booth to magic show to a karaoke street and what not. The variety of the games and finger licking food, kept the guests and children glued to them. The unbearable heat, though made us exhausted, but could not dampen the spirit and enthusiasm of the students who were managing the stalls, giving a glimpse of the future entrepreneurs.

The stage had something to look forward to at every point of time. The dance performances ranged from the Indian folk to that of salsa and tango. The skit performed by students reminded the elders of their school days and made the students relate to what they do in the class. The competitions brought out the hidden talents in the parents, who shook a leg along with their kids.

From parents to the Principal, coordinators to teachers and definitely, the students, all were in the festive spirit that brought a smile to each of our faces. And this was the smile that we wished to pass on to our less privileged friends. As it’s rightly said that:

“Giving is not just about making a donation; it is about making a difference.”

New Horizon Gurukul attempted to make a small difference to the organizations that work for the welfare of specially abled children and also of the stray animals, by donating the proceeds from all the stalls to them. Each stall was associated with a particular organization and the proceeds were handed over to the concerned organization. It not only gave a sense of happiness to the students, but also a sense of responsibility by doing their bit for the societal welfare.
