Pongal Celebration

We celebrated Pongal in a traditional way. Our teachers gave some speeches about Pongal and the importance of Pongal. Some dramas happened in the celebration and some students came and gave speeches on Pongal. Pongal, also referred to as Thai Pongal, is a multi-day harvest festival celebrated by Tamils. It is observed in the month of Thai according to the Tamil solar calendar and usually falls on 14 or 15 January. It is dedicated to the Surya, the Sun God and corresponds to Makar Sankranti, the harvest festival under many regional names celebrated throughout India. The festival is celebrated over three or four days with Bhogi, Surya Pongal, Mattu Pongal and Kaanum Pongal, observed on consecutive days.


  • The first day of the Pongal festival is called Bhogi, which marks the last day of the Tamil month Margazhi. On this day people discard old belongings and celebrate new possessions. The people assemble and light a bonfire in order to burn the heaps of discards. Houses are cleaned, painted and decorated to give a festive look. Prayers are offered to Indra, the king of Gods with thanks and hopes for plentiful rains in the year ahead. Kaappu kattu is a tradition of tying leaves of Azadirachta indica, Senna auriculata and Aerva lanata in the roofs of houses and residential areas that is widely practiced in the Kongu Nadu region. Bhogi is observed on the same day in the states of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana] Fruits of the harvest are collected along with flowers of the season and a mixture of treats along with money is given to children, who then separate and collect the money and sweet fruits.

Surya Pongal

  • Surya Pongal or Thai Pongal is the second and main festive day, and is dedicated to the sun god Surya. It is the first day of the Tamil calendar month Thai and coincides with Makar Sankranti, a winter harvest festival celebrated in other parts of India. The day marks the start of the Uttarayana, when the sun enters the tenth house of the zodiac. The day is celebrated with family and friends with new clothes worn and the preparation of the traditional pongal dish in an earthen pot. The pot is typically decorated by tying a turmeric plant or flower garland and placed in the sun along with sugar cane stalks. The homes are decorated with banana and mango leaves, decorative florals and kolams. Relatives and friends are invited and when the pongal starts to boil and overflow out of thevessel, participants blow a conch or make sounds while shouting "Pongalo Pongal" ("maythis rice boil over"). In rural areas, people sing traditional songs while the pongal dish iscooking. The Pongal dish is first offered to Surya and Ganesha, and then shared with thegathered friends and family. People traditionally offer prayers to the sun in the open andthen proceed to eat their meal. A community Pongal is an event where families gather at apublic place for a ceremonial worship.

Mattu Pongal

  • Mattu Pongal ("Maadu" meaning cow) is the third day of the festival meant for the celebration of cattle. The cattle is regarded as sources of wealth as it is a means for dairy products and fertilizers, used for transportation and agriculture. The cattle are bathed, their horns polished and painted in bright colors with garlands of flowers placed around their necks and taken for processions. Some decorate their cows with turmeric water and apply shikakai and kumkum to their foreheads. The cattle are fed sweets including pongal, jaggery, honey, banana and other fruits. People may prostrate before them with words of thanks for the help with the harvest. The day marks a ritual visit to nearby temples where communities hold processions by parading icons from the sanctum of the temple in wooden chariots, drama-dance performances encouraging social gatherings and renewal of community bonds. Other events during Pongal include community sports and games such as Jallikattu or bull fighting. Jallikattu is a traditional event held during the period attracting huge crowds in which a bull is released into a crowd of people, and multiple human participants attempt to grab the large hump on the bull's back with both arms and hang on to it while the bull attempts to escape.

Kanum Pongal

  • Kanum Pongal or Kanu Pongal is the fourth day of the festival and marks the end of Pongal festivities for the year. The word kanum in the context means "to visit" and families hold reunions on this day. Communities organize social events to strengthen mutual bonds and consume food and sugarcane during social gatherings. Young people visit elders to pay respects and seek blessings, with elders giving gifts to the visiting children.

School Carnival

We are happy to deliver that we have organised a carnival in our school with lots of events and magic shows and yummy food stalls and events for parents. Growing up, one of the most exciting events for me were carnivals. Everything about carnivals made me eager to attend. Entering a carnival was like a sensory overload. The rides were always lit up at night reminding me of elaborate Christmas decorations. Then, of course, there was the different music coming from the various rides, a mix of foxtrot and the familiar melody of the carousel. The game booths practically called to you, with those gigantic stuffed animals you wished you could win. And the smells of the delicious fare wafting throughout the park prompted your stomach to rumble with hunger.


  • Carnival is a Christian festive season that occurs before the liturgical season of Lent. The main events typically occur during February or early March, during the period historically known as Shrovetide (or PreLent). Carnival typically involves public celebrations, including events such as parades, public street parties and other entertainments, combining some elements of a circus. Elaborate costumes and masks allow people to set aside their everyday individuality and experience a heightened sense of social unity.


  • Participants often indulge in excessive consumption of alcohol,[4] meat, and other foods that will be forgone during upcoming Lent. Traditionally, butter, milk, and other animal products were not consumed "excessively" , rather, their stock was fully consumed during Shrovetide as to reduce waste. This festival is known for being a time of great indulgence before Lent (which is a time stressing the opposite), with drinking, overeating, and various other activities of indulgence being performed.


  • For example, pancakes, donuts, and other desserts are prepared and eaten for a final time. During Lent, lacticinia and animal products are eaten less, and individuals make a Lenten sacrifice, thus giving up a certain object or activity of desire. We have have enjoyed the carnival with the food stalls , games , lucky draw , and rides for kids also parents were enjoyed the carnival This event is memorable for our RPS students . We thank our lovable Principal mam , honourable correspondent mam , respectable Administrative officer mam, and our favorite teachers.

Republic day

Proud to tell that we are Indians we got independence during 19th century on 1950 26 January . in our school we celebrate our republic in a very neat way by inviting chief guest and training for march past and lots of skit , dance and speech we also distribute the prices for achievers on India achieved independence from the British Raj on 15August 1947 following the success of the Indian independence movement

Republic day Celebration

  • The independence came through the Indian Independence Act 1947 (10 & 11 Geo 6 c 30), an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom that partitioned British India into the two new independent Dominions of the British Commonwealth (later Commonwealth of Nations). India became a constitutional monarchy with George VI as head of state and the Earl Mountbatten as governor-general. The country, though, did not yet have a permanent constitution; instead its laws were based on the modified colonial Government of India Act 1935

Republic day Celebration

  • On 29 August 1947, a resolution was moved for the appointment of a Drafting Committee, which was appointed to draft a permanent constitution, with Dr B R Ambedkar as chairman. A draft constitution was prepared by the committee and submitted to the Constituent Assembly on 4 November 1947. The Assembly met for 166 days in public sessions spanning two years, 11 months, and 17 days before adopting the Constitution. The 308 members of the Assembly signed two handwritten copies of the document (one in Hindi and one in English) on 24 January 1950, after much deliberation and some changes.

Republic day Celebration

  • Two days later, 26 January 1950, it came into effect throughout the whole nation. While India's Independence Day celebrates its freedom from British Rule, the Republic Day celebrates the coming into force of its constitution. On that day, Dr Rajendra Prasad began his first term of office as President of the Indian Union. The Constituent Assembly became the Parliament of India under the transitional provisions of the new Constitution.

annual day

An annual day is not just any normal day, it's a day in which the whole school hosts a celebration at the end of an academic year. It is to celebrate the achievements of all the students. In our school, the rising school of chennai, RPS, it was celebrated with the chief guests being Mr.Gopinath, a celebrated speaker and the host of many popular tv shows who was accompanied with Mrs.Premalatha Bhoopathy, the CEO of Maharishi VidyaMandir with over 40 years of experience.


  • Each spectator is a jewel gifted to the participant but to get an applaud from the chief guest, it is a truly priceless treasure and especially from someone who is famous to half the world, you can say you got fulfillment in life. Mr.Gopinath Chandran is an Indian television anchor, radio jockey, journalist, reporter, news presenter/moderator, entrepreneur, and a writer, currently featured on the STAR Vijay debate show Neeya Naana and popularly known as neeya naana Gopinath. He has anchored many tv companies to the path of success with his amazing speaking skills and on the spot thinking with a hint of joyous humor but don't forget, he wasn't alone, Mrs Premalatha Bhoopathy.

Mrs. Premalatha Bhoopathy

  • Mrs. Premalatha Boopathy serves as the Senior Principal and CEO of the Maharishi Vidya Mandir Group of Schools. Her leadership plays a crucial role in shaping the educational environment within the group. The Maharishi Vidya Mandir Group of Schools is committed to providing quality education and fostering holistic development among students. With people like them, you don't just do what you are told for an applause, but outperform your self for a standing ovation. This was what all students of our school did, everyone from the little kindergarteners to the highschoolers. The 2 chief guests were there but another person was there, the CEO of The leader in me corporation, who cooperated with our schools to increase the students' awareness on what a leader is and how we can be our own leaders inside ourselves.

Primary pupils Dance

  • All that we saw now was just the tip of the iceberg, the entire bottom was the endless celebrations, dances, speeches, songs, choirs and much more, but these are nothing without the help of our comparators. They cheered and encouraged the crowd to cheer together while conveying everything that happened and what will happen with not a hint of staggering too. The day started with a speech from our beloved Ms.Revathi and one of the most beautiful performances performed by primary pupils. All the applause and cheer given by parents needed to be controlled or the place would be crowded with one parent blocking the next, it was controlled in a passive manner by the volunteers who made themselves busy for the weekend. The morning was also filled in with the speech from the leader in me ceo to end the morning with fun filled in the heart and excitement surging through everyone's veins.

Thiruppavai Competition

We are happy to announce that , in our school we have organised a thiruppavai competition from kindergarten to grade 6 ,from this competition our school students feel peace and calm like bhagavat gita this is also a sanskari competition .Andal’s Thiruppavai is recited in Margazhi because of the sacredness of the month. But Thiruppavai is sofull of Visishtadvaitic thoughts that it must be read throughout the year. In the first verse, Andal says Krishna’s face is like the sun and the moon, said T.N.Aravamudachariar in a discourse. This seems contradictory, because the sun is associated with heat and the moon with coolness. The Lord is kindness personified to His devotees. But He is an avenging God to those who torment His bhaktas.

Thiruppavai Competition

  • Vedanta Desika elaborates on this idea in verse seven of his Kamasikashtakam, when he uses the words — “satA patala bheeshaNe.” Here, he describes the Lord’s mercy in His Narasimha avatara. He is full of fury, because of Hiranyakasipu’s cruelty to Prahlada. But when His eyes alight on Prahlada, His karunya flows from them. Andal says that Krishna’s foster father Nandagopa held a sharpened spear to protect his son, because Krishna faced many dangers in infancy, with Kamsa sending demons to kill Him. Such love and concern for the Lord is evident in the case of the Azhvars also. Periyazhvar, who was fully cognisant of Lord Narayana’s Supremacy, got carried away when he saw the Lord on Garuda. What a magnificent spectacle it was! What if someone were to cast evil eyes on this Lord? And so, in a spontaneous outburst of love, he sang the pallandu verses, praying that He be protected from evil eyes.

Nammazhvar’s Thiruvaimozhi

  • As in the case of Nammazhvar’s Thiruvaimozhi, Andal’s verses also have several commentaries. That is why Thiruppavai is referred to the as the seed of the Vedas, said M.A.Venkatakrishnan in a discourse. Thiruvaimozhi is the essence of the Vedas, but Thiruppavai is the seed. This is not to suggest that the Vedas came from the Thiruppavai. The Vedas cannot be assigned a date. They have no fixed beginning.

The seed of the Vedas

  • That being the case, how can the Thiruppavai be the seed of the Vedas? And yet, there is nothing illogical about the claim. We are very happy that with the support of our favorite music mam , we are waiting for many competition with lots of positiveness and happiness. thank you to our management our principal mam correspondent mam and administrative officer mam.
