The Matri Puja conducted in the last part of the academic session in VKVs evokes a great feeling in the participants and once again affirms the significance of mother in anybody’s life.The role of mother in shaping the character of the child is paramount. In Mahabharata there is an interesting episode in which the mother’s clear vision of the role to be played by her child is reflected. The Pandavas were planning to have compromise to avoid any sort of war and requested Sri Krishna to carve a way out for the same. On knowing the same, Kunti, told very firmly “The time has come for which I a Kshatriya woman have given birth to my sons, as a Kshatriya they should see to it that Dharma prevails. For ensuring that Dharma prevails, they should fight for the good to eradicate adharma in the society.”Such type of firm conviction held by the mother will definitely steer their children in the right direction.

The academic session 2016-17 is in the fag end now. The year has gone very successfully with lot of activities in which students, staffs and the community at large have garnered lot of enrichments.

There were many activities conducted during the months February and March to share with all of you.
