Guru Purnima event in my school Vidya Prabodhini Prashala

Today I was invited in my school on the occasion of Guru Purnima. The topic was – “Mother – the first guru”.

There were 3 other guests,

Hemant Pakhale – recently cleared UPSC exam,

Ajay Pawar – an all rounder student when he was in school who just completed his MBA and joined Kotak Mahindra Bank as Manager

Ovi Dixit – Marathi actress who has worked in lot of Marathi dramas, serials, talent shows and films as well. She’s studying in 10th std in our school.

So we four were invited in school along with our mothers.

The program started with a welcome song sung by school students, then reading of few poems made by students/teachers, followed by lectures of each guest for about 5-10 minutes. Then at the end of program, some students performed a short drama on guru-disciple relations.

After the program got over a lot of students asked me a lot of questions. Mostly about our game – Balloon Bow Arrow, about solving Rubik’s cube and yes, about my hair 🙂

School teachers were very happy to meet us. Felt good to visit school after such a long time. Nostalgia!

There is a sacred bond between students and school. I am fortunate that we still share that bond, that we are still connected to school in some way. .
