Happy Mother's Day
PRESIDIANS ENLIGHTENED BY THE TEACHINGS OF LORD BUDDHA
“Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness can never decrease by being shared.” Gautam Buddha
The preachings of Lord Buddha have been a source of great wisdom, insight and inspiration for many around the world. His philosophy of the ‘Four Noble Truths’ and the ‘Noble Eightfold Path’ guides us to the path of spiritual awakening and seeking eternal knowledge. Every year, 10th May is celebrated as Buddha Purnima all over the world, symbolizing his birth anniversary and the day he attained enlightenment.
Presidians celebrated the occasion of Buddha Purnima as a tribute to the great philosopher, Lord Buddha, who was the preacher of love and harmony. Showcasing his journey of life and how he went on to become a great philosopher and spiritual teacher, an assembly was specially organized, where the students also staged a skit on his teachings and philosophy on life and its principles.
Inspiring us to lead a righteous life, achieved with truth and determination, the day served as a reminiscence of the valuable teachings of Lord Buddha.

Dance being one of most ancient and celebrated art forms of India, it is deeply engrained in its culture and heritage. To celebrate the beautiful art form and set a platform to showcase the traditional Indian classical dance forms, Presidium celebrated World Dance Day in association with Spic Macay.

Meenu Thakur; Kathak exponent, Km. Mahua Sarkar; Kathak exponent, Smt. Ragni Chandrashekhar; the stage was lit up by their beautiful performances. Witnessing the wondrous and magical performances, Presidians were in awe of the dance Gurus and were inspired by their devoted pursuit of the art form. The maestros briefed them about the intricacies of the mudras and steps of various classical dance forms of India. The interaction proved to be a learning experience for Presidians as they brushed up their knowledge about the art of self-expression and weaving stories through dance.
