Sundara Sowhradam – the unique confluence of the Mata Pita and the Guru is the celebration of human solidarity which every Rajagirian looks forward to. It is a recognition of the fact that difference is a reason for celebration and growth. This year too the mega event was celebrated with great fanfare on 4 February 2012.Pink being the colour of the day, the campus brimmed with vibrancy as different shades of this lovely hue dotted each nook and corner…it was indeed marking solidarity with pink ribbon crusade!
Fun filled activities awaited the eager crowd that thronged in large numbers. People were seen trying their luck at the Magic Pot and also making a guess of the price of the lovely saree and Dhothi-kurta on display.
The official programme which was presided over by the President of the PTA Mr. Mathew B Kurian began at 3.30pm. The chief guest of the day cine artist Ms. PadmaPriya lighted the lamp for a truly auspicious beginning. Seeking the blessings of the Almighty in full measure, Mr Divakaran M.P rendered the prayer song. Ms Sreekala Panickar, member of the faculty welcomed the gathering. Ms. Padmapriya delivered the inaugural address and gave best wishes to the parent and student community. Prizes were distributed to the star performers of Rajagiri who had proved their mettle in the literary, cultural and sporting events at the school, state and national level.
The crowd then adjourned to the main school ground for a gala evening of scintillating music, dance and drama. People thronged in large numbers and the air was thick with excitement. Many stalls selling a variety of goodies and also the sumptuous Oottupura attracted people who shopped busily and also took time off to tickle their taste buds. Melodious and soul stirring songs were rendered with passion and depth. Captivating dance performances by the parents took away the breath of the audience. The hilarious skit by the parents had the crowd in splits. The thing about these performances was that it was a celebration of the reality that one does contain within oneself infinite possibilities. As the curtain fell on Sundara Sowhradam 2012 the PTA of Rajagiri Public School lifted their hearts to human solidarity, to the ultimate victory of knowledge, peace, good-will and understanding.
