VINAYAGA CHATHURTHI CELEBRATION
Ganesh Chaturthi is a ten-day Hindu festival celebrated to honour the elephant-headed God Ganesha's birthday. He is the son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati.
Ganesha is known by 108 different names and is the Lord of arts and science and the deva of wisdom. He is honoured at the start of rituals and ceremonies as he's considered the God of beginnings. He's widely and dearly referred to as Ganapati or Vinayaka.
The Birthday of Lord Ganesha is celebrated as Vinayaga Chathurthi. Every year we celebrate the festival by preparing the idol of Lord Ganesha with the help of XI std students. The Vinayaga charthurthi celebration was celebrated from 01.09.2016 to 07.09.2016. Each class was given a chance to worship Lord Ganesha by offering flowers and Prasadam. Students worshipped Lord Ganesha through chanting Manthras.
After completing the Pooja, prasatham was distributed to the students and staff. The last day Pooja was conducted by X, XI & XII std students in a grand manner on 07.09.2016. After completing the last day celebration of Vinayaga chathruthi, the idol of Lord Ganesha was taken by our students for Visarjanam. With the blessings of Lord Ganesha the ceremony was conducted very auspiciously.
