On May 1, Laxmi Bai and Prahlad Houses of Gyan Bharati School hosted their Annual House Function. The theme of the function was ‘Nachiketa – Mann Ki Urja.’
The Kathopanishad starts with the story of Nachiketa whose father took a vow to perform a yagna, renouncing all his material possessions. Nachiketa questions his father for donating old and feeble cows after the yagna. His father in rage at being questioned tells young Nachiketa, “I give you to Yama – the Lord of Death.” Face to face with Yama, young Nachiketa rejects material possessions and learns the ultimate truth behind ‘Mrityu’ from Yama himself.
The story of Nachiketa brought to light the power of determination, perseverance, faith and the eagerness to learn. It inspired us to try – try until we succeed.
The function commenced with a dance composition seeking the blessings of Lord Krishna. A fusion of three popular dance forms of the country – Kathak, Bharatnatyam and Odishi the composition described the love of Lord Krishna for humanity.
