Bharathiyar Day



Plan out your work, then work out your plan.
The former without the latter is a sheer waste.
The latter without the former is mere unproductive confusion.
Swami Chinmayananda

In all worthwhile undertakings, There will be risks of failure, of disappointments, of even disaster. To face them all with inner poise and firm faith is to discover the glory of final victory.
Swami Chinmayananda

“Negative thoughts weaken men. Do you not find that where parents are constantly taxing their sons to read and write, telling them they will never learn anything, and calling them fools and so forth, the latter do actually turn out to be so in many cases? If you speak kind words to boys and encourage them, they are bound to improve in time.”-Swami Vivekananda

104th Birthday of Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayanandaji

An online meeting was convened by our Principal to celebrate our Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayanandaji's 104th birthday on 8th May 2020. Gurudev's Ashtothra Namavali was chanted by all the teachers followed by the aarthi with great fervor.
A video compilation which showcased our parents active participation of chanting and Gurustotram and offering of their humble Pranams to our Gurudev was a visual treat of the celebration. This was followed by our students and teacher parents chanting the Gurupaduka stotram. Next the senior students ably supported by our Alumni rendered the Gurupaduka Stotram. The aarti was a fitting finale to this devotional presentation. The programme was the brain child of our Correspondent Sir, Principal Madam and Vice Principal Madam.
It was a blessing to be able to pay our reverence to our Pujya Gurudev on this special day. View Images...
