Chandrakanthi public school is noted for its colourful and exuberant celebrations every year. Of which one such celebration is the Golu which is primarily observed during the celebration of Navaratri, which typically falls in the month of October and continues for nine days. Golu is a significant occasion, as it symbolizes the victory of good over evil. It is believed that the divine energy of Goddess Durga is at its peak, and the purpose of Golu is to invoke her blessings and celebrate her divine presence.
The Golu arrangement typically includes an odd-numbered set of steps, usually three, five, seven, or nine tiers, decorated with various dolls and figurines. These dolls represent different themes, such as mythological stories, religious deities, historical events, and scenes from everyday life. They are made of clay, wood, or modern materials.
The first step of our golu consists of plants, birds and animals. The second step has saints and Purana Khumba and prophets. The third step consists of goddess Varalakshmi . The fourth step has deities. And finally, the fifth step consists of Lord Nataraj and nine goddess forms of Shakthi.
Every student of each grade contributes a doll of his/ her choice irrespective of the religion they belong to. This signifies the importance of their participation in the festival. The themes can range from depictions of the Ramayana and Mahabharata to village life and contemporary social issues. CPS showcases its display of golu for the past fifteen years and continues the same with a theme related to the current events of the country.
The themes that are followed this year are,
1. The oldest musical instrument of India, the Veena, symbolizes the Indian ethos throughout the country and has sociological and cultural connotations. Saraswati, the Goddess of learning, is visualized as Veenapani, the wielder of a Veena. Veena, regarded as the precursor of all Indian string instruments, has been instrumental in standardizing many fundamental laws of music.
Lord Krishna was an embodiment of humility though, He was the Lord of the universe. He became the charioteer of Arjuna. Lord Krishna was great in knowledge, great in emotion, great in action, altogether. The scriptures have not recorded any life more full, intense, sublime, grand than His.
2. Saraswati is the goddess of learning, arts, and music, as well as the consort of Brahma, the creator. She is described to be the very embodiment of wisdom.
Lakshmi is the goddess of fortune, wealth, fertility, auspiciousness, light, and material and spiritual fulfillment, as well as the consort of Vishnu, the maintainer or preserver
Parvati is also worshipped as Durga and Kali as the goddess of power, war, beauty, and love. She is the consort of Shiva, the destroyer of evil, or transformer.
3. Murugan temple
The Subramaniya Swamy Temple, Tiruchendur is an ancient Hindu temple dedicated to Murugan. It is second among six abodes of Murugan (Āṟupadai veedukal) situated in Tamil Nadu, India. This temple is the fourth Hindu temple in Tamil Nadu to get ISO certification.[1] It is located in the eastern end of the town Tiruchendur in the district of Thoothukudi, Tamil Nadu, India.
4. Thirupathi temple of Venkidachalapathi (lord of Venkata Mountains) also called as Venkatesa, Srinivasa , Balaji, Ezhumalai vasa , Ezhu kondlavadu etc is the richest temple in the world in terms of its assets. The temple is situated on the Seshaachalam mountains. This mountain has seven peaks viz Seshadri , Neeladri , Garudadri , Anjanadri ,Vrushabadri, Narayanadri and Venkatadri. The Thirupathi temple is situated on the top most peak Venkatadri.
5. Chandrayaan-1, a lunar orbiter mission launched in 2008 as India’s first endeavor to send a craft beyond Earth, was also the first to detect water on the lunar surface – a discovery that drastically influenced the plans of the U.S. and Chinese space programs for human lunar exploration.
The students of CPS proudly prepared a working model of the Chandrayaan 3.
The festival helps people uphold traditional values, encapsulate the spirit of the occasion, emphasizing the cycle of renewal, positivity, continuity of tradition and pass them down to future generations, ensuring the preservation of their cultural identity.
