On 19TH Oct 2015, SMCS Family with full enthusiasm celebrated the Dussehra Festival. The significance of Dussehra festival lies in the religious values. It teaches us that good triumph over evil. The festivity involved colourful processions, traditional dance, music and theatrical representation of Hindu epic Ramayana. Mahishasura Mardini act was appreciable. The story of Ramayana is relevant to us as well, if we wish to progress spiritually, we have to first make efforts to control the negative tendencies. Only then we can cultivate the positive ones. The message given by Sir Principal highlighted the 10 vices Dussehra fights – Loathing, Desire, Envy, Selfishness, Dishonesty, Obsession, Gluttony, Rage, Passion & Pride. Students were guided to celebrate restoration of social order, victory of good over evil, a well-defined social structure and choosing the right path. The programme was ended with the national Anthem.
