International Day of Yoga was observed with complete fervour. The planning began from 25 May onwards. First we contacted the private schools in our neighbourhood. But we didn’t get a positive reply from them as all of them were planning to go for vacation from 15 June onwards. The Govt schools are just re-opening and the admission process was on
We planned to give training to selected students from the schools where our alumni members are present. Accordingly three schools were selected. Our teachers Su.Dolly Ghosh and Sri.Rebot Bharali were assigned to impart the skills. Accordingly the yogasana classes were planned from 4pm onwards. As everything was ready, there came an order from DC, saying Namsai is selected among the 200 heritage sites where IYD to be conducted. This will be attended by national leaders. All schools and offices of Namsai were asked to take part in the District level program which will be conducted at the Golden Pagoda.
It was at this time we had a thought of getting associated with the Arunachal University of Studies. They were in the midst of their exams and were worried about the program at Golden Pagoda. Then finally we decided for a common programme.
Hence the programme was finalised. Our teachers Sri. Rebot and Su.Dolly gave the necessary training and finally on they took our class VI children to the university and took part the yoga programme. From our school 20 Class students and two teachers took part in the programme. Back in school, our class III,IV and V students attended the program.

Gurupurnima was celebrated with complete fervour in VKV Namsai.
The planning for this was done weeks ahead and accordingly plans were made to associate alumni members, selected parents and students. Accordingly some responsibilities were shared by Smt. Timita Didi, Mocambo Sir, Chow Tichanam Ji , Chow Mowni Singkai and Chow Arvind Jeinow.
Initially it was decided to organise the function at Arunachal University incorporating some students from there also. But the ban on gathering declared by the Disaster Management Body made us to go with another plan. Hence it was decided to go with the programme in our school itself. As the days were passing , the temple authorities announced the Gurupurnima celebration on 23rd July itself. Earlier it happened later or ahead of the Purnima day.
Although it would be day with tight schedule, we planned accordingly and our programme was scheduled accordingly. As per that our programme began at 11 am enabling the students and alumni members to complete their temple visit. But some of them started coming from 9 am onwards as they had to go to faraway places.
Our programme began with Aikya mantra. Chow Tichanam Singkai gave the welcome address. Then there was a Guru bhajan by our teachers. It was followed by our students, alumni members and available parents. Then Sri. Madhu Bal said about the importance of the day. In addition to that a Swadhyaya was initiated and all participated in that. The letter sent by Adareeniya Nivedita Didi was put for discussion. The need of keeping alive the Dharma and the need to knowing the true Dharma was taken up for detailed learning. After this one more Guru bhajan was sung by our students. After that our teacher Sri.Deepankar Dey gave the vote of thanks.
All the members who attended the function left after enjoying the splendid kheer offered from the school. 22 persons attended the program and 8 persons came early to offer pranams to AUM.
Simultaneously a drawing competition was organised for the students of our school. They were asked to draw picture of “the OMKARA or Lord Buddha”.
