SILIGURI: Bright Academy celebrated this auspicious day with zeal and enthusiasm. Our purpose was to enlighten our students with regards to Hindu custom and mythology. Students came dressed up as Ram, Lakshman, Sita and Ravana. In Punjabi Para branch, the background was prepared with nice colorful cloths, colourful papers, “chunris” and flowers. A backdrop of Maa Durga’s family was placed at the center for the photographs with a student dressed up as Maa Durga at the center of the decoration.
A photo of Maa Durga was placed and it was decorated with flowers and ‘Rangoli’ was made by the teachers using all different colors. Also, one big portrait of Ravana was placed on one side to give the look of Dusshera.
