To mark 150th birth Anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, MHAC School, Nagbani  Jammu organised a special assembly. The theme was “Freedom was Gandhiji’s Benchmark, Non-Vioolence was his Hallmark”. Cleanliness pledge remained the highlight. A powerful speech on Gandhian Principles was delivered in which the ideas of ‘Satyagrah’ and ‘Swatchtagrah’ were shared with the students. 2nd Oct is also the Birth Anniversary of former Prime Minister Sh. Lal Bhadur Shastri Ji. The celebration of the day was to honour two great leaders who brought a sea change in to Indian Socio-political system.

One gave India much desired freedom with his non-violent ways and the others who encouraged Indian Soldiers and farmers with his famous slogan ‘Jai Jawan Jai Kisan’. For Gandhiji  ‘Ahimsa Parmo Dharma’ was the great thought choir sang his favourite  hymns ‘Vaishnava Janto’ and ‘Hey Ram’. The recitals truly are attribute to Gandhiji for his non-violent approach towards world peace.

The School Pricipal Mrs.Sween Puri addressed the august gathering and shared her feelings on the occasion that Gandhi is an idea that lives inside each and every one’s subconscious. “If a mistake is done apologise. `Don’t hate anyone’-then you are Gandhi.”She told Gandhi Jayanti should be celebrated everyday by keeping our surroundings clean. She talked about discarding plastic tiffins and encouraged the students to use steel instead. She spoke about Lal Bahadur Shastri’s simplicity and shared few anecdotes.
