Esteemed teachers and my dear students

Wish you all a Happy Republic Day!

Today we all have gathered here to celebrate our 70th Republic Day. On this auspicious occasion I extend my heartiest greetings and good wishes to you all. As we all know about the importance of Republic Day, I need not speak much about this special day. However we need to be grateful to the founding fathers who formulated and drafted an exemplary Constitution of India that has steered India towards progress and development. Due to the untiring efforts of the great leaders / freedom fighters of our nation under oppressive conditions, we / you all are fortunate of being born in independent India. Now we as the citizens of this great nation and you children as the future citizens of the country, need to re-dedicate ourselves to build a stronger and developed nation.

Just now we have unfurled our National Tricolor Flag and I am sure it would be interesting to know few facts about our flag. Early in the 20th century, the Indian National Congress under the leadership of Mahatma Gandhi, a man named Pingali Venkayya designed the flag with saffron and green stripes, which represent the unity of Hindu and Muslim brethren of our country, and a navy blue wheel with 24 spokes at the center that was adopted from the Ashoka Chakra symbolizes our desire for self-reliance. The white band at the center represents various other communities of our nation. Thus our National Tricolor flag was adopted which symbolizes the strong unity among various communities of the nation.

At this juncture, let me remind you that though the country is plagued with certain social evils yet we are proud to see our nation marching ahead on the roads of development. Now as the future citizens of our country, you all need to strive for a fully developed nation of ours and put your efforts in achieving the same. Remember that we need to take the true spirit from our National Tricolor and strive to achieve our desire of a developed nation through our unity. Nothing can be impossible if we stand united, work for the prosperity and development of our nation and thus fulfill our dreams of building a stronger nation in future.

Children, I would like to remind you of Swach Bharat Abhiyan initiated by our Prime Minister - Mr. Narendra Modi - which is of great importance. You are very well aware that cleanliness plays a key role for a healthy living. Dear students, this is your school and it is your foremost responsibility to keep your classrooms and the school premises clean i.e. 'swach', This would help in the overall cleanliness of the school. Of course, there are 'ayahs' who do their duty but as future citizens of the country, you need to be responsible and help 'ayahs' in doing their duty in the right way. Let's strive to build a cleaner and healthier nation.

Jai Hind!

How To Perform Aksharabhyasam At Home And Basar temple

Aksharabhyasam is a traditional religious function of Hindus. 'Akshara' means letters (alphabets) in Sanskrit and 'abhyasam' means practice. It is also known as 'Vidyaarambham' which literally means starting of education. In this function a child is given initiation for writing / education. With this function the child is ready to receive formal education in a school. The function is performed in different ways in different regions of India.

In the olden days, aksharabhyasam was performed when the child was 5 years old. But presently because of early education at Kindergarten level, parents perform this ceremony when the child is in his 3rd year i.e. after the child completes 2 years. Normally there is a belief that aksharabhyasam should not be performed after the child completes 3 years and is in its 4th year.

The function can be performed either in a temple or at home.

How To Celebrate Atla Taddi?

Dussehra festival is followed by Atla Taddi which is one of the important festivals celebrated by Telugu women in particular the young unmarried girls. Atla Taddi is celebrated on Aswayuja Bahula Tadiya i.e the 3rd day after the full moon day in the Hindu month of Aswayuja. The festival is also known by the names of 'Undralla Taddi', 'asoonyasayana vratam' and 'chandrodaya Umavratam'.

The festival is mainly aimed at blissful and long married life. Marriage is not only an important social event but also a sacred one as per Hinduism and every young Indian girl dreams of her married life. Hence, the young unmarried girls compulsorily celebrate the festival in view of getting a prospective groom. The festival of Atla Taddi is very much similar to Karva Chauth - a festival celebrated by the married women in the North states of India.

'Atla Taddi' literally means the festival of 'atlu' i.e dosas (a crispy and thinly spread pan cake with the batter mad…
