On 17th September 2015 , Sri Ganesh Chaturthi was celebrated in a productive way with great joy and enthusiasm. It was right time to expose the hidden talents of our students because it was a beautiful appearance of Lord Ganesha in perfect outline and paint. The narrative of the achievements of young artists will be incomplete if it is not mentioned that the task of making this Ganesh idol was completed within twenty-four hours of declaration.
To begin this great celebration, some valuable stories from the life of Ganapati was highlighted by Shri R.P.Dubey, which was followed by the Vedic hymes as per our Sanatana dharma. All the four makers and designers of Ganapati have performed the puja under the direction of Shri R.P.Dubey, followed by arati of Lord Ganesha by all the 165 students and staff members. The four bhajans of Ganapati were presented by the hostellers in lead and follow method. The programme was concluded with Kendra Prarthana.
The whole programme was keenly observed by Shri Pradeep Kumar Pandeyji, Cluster In-charge and he has shared his feelings with all. In his precise and concise speech, he praised the students and staff for the creation of a sacred atmosphere in the prayer hall. He also appreciated the talent of those young architects, who worked hard with devotion and sincerity for making the beautiful idol of Ganapati.
ITANAGAR, Sept 17: Governor J P Rajkhowa has called upon the youth of the state to think great to achieve great. The youth of the State should strive to give greatest happiness, to greatest number of people for the greatest length of time. It can be done by imbibing a high sense of value based learning, discipline, punctuality, dedication, commitment, honesty and integrity and avoiding all forms of greed, the Governor said while addressing an interactive session on the topic, ‘Empower to Excel’, organised to mark the birth centenary of Swami Chinmayananda at the Eknathji Bhawan, VKV, Chimpu, Itanagar today.
The Governor underscored that there is no substitute to hard work, but added that to relax one’s body and mind is equally important, which is possible through learning and practice of Yoga derived from ancient Indian traditions.
Recalling the great contribution of eminent personalities, who have contributed towards the great cultural heritage of India, since ancient times and outstanding personalities of modern times such as Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Governor called upon the people to imbibe high social values, healthy ancient customs and traditions of great Indian culture. Ethnic values as enshrined in the Vedas, the Upanishads, the Puranas, Bhagwad Gita need to be practiced and passed on to the next generation. He also advised them to discard negative thoughts and greed and practice Yoga for positive mind.
Exhorting the people of the State to rise against those people in politics, governance, business etc. who do not follow ethical principle and values in their approaches and manner of working, the Governor said, these unscrupulous people should be socially boycotted. People should stand against such anti-people elements, who do not care for serving public interests and are only interested in their personal aggrandisement through misuse of public offices.
Participating in the Akhand Jyoti Yatra programme of Chinmaya Mission, Swami Mitranandaji said that to empower ourselves, the people have to think big. He said that young India has to wake up and respect time tested Indian traditions and value substance. They must not settle for second and always aim at ‘Big’ and ‘Best’. For this the people must bring mind and body in alignment and pursue their goal for ‘maximum happiness for maximum people for maximum time’. Swami Mitrananji emphasised that whatever they do, they must try to do better next day and go on improving themselves, in order to achieve the ‘Best’ in their respected fields.
A large number of guests and invitees from different walks of life, guardians and students were present at the interactive session. (PRO to Governor)

“They live in Wisdom who sees themselves in all and all in them….” It is possible to change our life style, outlook and capacity to accommodate different people if the spiritual outlook is imbibed. We need to stand apart from the rest as we have a great responsibility to educate the younger ones about the spiritual wisdom and develop right perspective about life to the masses. One of the ways of attaining the same is to undertake Swadhyaya regularly and reflect on the same. The life and message of Mananeeya Eknathji would definitely help us to achieve this.
