With the message of peace and harmony the Onam season has once again come alive. ISS celebrated Onam on 8th October, 2014 amidst great cheer and the cultural extravaganza.
The stage was decorated with flowers and with an astonishing snake boat, bringing out the creative talent of students and teachers. The mesmerizing “Athapookkalam” (floral bed) caught the attention of one and all and took everyone into a world of festivity and fun.
The students of Std. VI to XI presented a musical drama incorporating Pulikali, boat race, a famous sport performed in Kerala during the season and Kaikottikali, a traditional Onam dance. The celebration extravaganza reached its helm when the ‘pulikali’ team which included four ‘onapuli’ and a ‘shikkari’ entered the stage.
Under the guidance of Mrs. Rajshree, the students enacted the story of Mahabali. The arrival of Mahabali amid the beats of panchavadyam was well-received by the audience. The celebration brought with it sweet memories—of time spent with family, of eating nice meals and, of collecting flower petals with which to make colourful pookkalam. The celebration came to an end with the message of the Principal, Mrs Sanchita Verma. Mrs. Mini Alex coordinated the whole programme.
