Shramdaan Day Celebrations at ICSK Senior

Monday, October 9, 2017

“Everyone needs to be valued. Everyone has the potential to give something back”. With the dictum “Coming together is a beginning, keeping together is progress and working together is success”, Shramdaan Day was celebrated at The Indian Community School (Senior) Kuwait on 02nd October 2017, to commemorate the birth anniversary of the Father of our Nation, Mahatma Gandhi, with the ultimate objective to help the students nurture in them the virtues of compassion, empathy and mutuality and, by small acts of service to humanity, work towards a better community.

Shramdaan Day was inaugurated by Master.Aneez Mohammed, the President of School Senate. After the inaugural ceremony, the students delved deep into various activities to celebrate the philosophy of the Father of our Nation, Mahatma Gandhi - ‘Work is Worship and Shramdaan is essential for wholesome development’. Shramdaan means volunteering of labour and social service within the community for development. The central intent behind Shramdaan is, to motivate people to live in hygienic surroundings, to inculcate simplicity in the minds of our citizens, freedom from complexity of mind and the significance of cleanliness and green surroundings. With added vigor and fervour, the students cleaned the school premises and brought in the atmosphere of exultant well-being due to their collective efforts.The real zest of events happened with the active participation of over 1400 students from Class VI to XII. Life becomes meaningful only when it is based on strong values. Shramdaan is an endeavour to inculcate the students with moral values and concern for the environment.

The Nature club of the school joined hands with this endeavor as ‘Service is the best form of worship and to help the environment is helping oneself ’. Only if the environment is preserved, a healthy existence is possible for human beings. Nature club of ICSK conscentices the students upon the importance of acknowledging their environment. As a tribute to the environment, under the aegis of the club, the students decided to convert the barren desert land around them into vivid greenery. The students proceeded with the spirit of added encouragement and created beautiful patches of garden in the campus through terrace-gardening.Apart from the gardens, the students can also be proud of the numerous saplings they have planted, as these trees can contribute a lot to the ecosystem in the years to come.

It was a day for donating one's service and the students committed themselves with promises of continued service. Children enjoyed doing and sharing work with each other. It became a source of fun and merriment for the children. Work really became fun. Work really became worship.

Mrs. K. Sabarwal, Mrs. Saritha P. Nair, Mrs. Mariam Sam and Mrs. Indira Radhakrishnan took leadership in coordinating a day long activities. Dr. V. Binumon, Principal & Senior Administrator congratulated all participants for their tireless efforts.
