Christmas was celebrated at Isha Vidhya schools before they closed for winter break. Many schools had set up a nativity scene with the three wise men, the manger and more. Hymns were sung, skits based on Christmas and dances performed. Students from KG school were encouraged to come dressed as angels and Jesus.

Santa Claus made an appearance to the delight of all the students. The programs ended with distribution of sweets, leaving our students happy about the festival and excited about the forthcoming holiday.
On 26th December Isha Vidhya Cuddalore participated in the 13th Tsunami Memorial Day. The students, along with the locals, prayed for the departed and offered milk and flowers to the sea according to local tradition. Even after all these years, the scars of the disaster are still raw and the remembrance still brings pain to those who were affected.
The finals of the Isha Chola Throwball Trophy, organized by Isha Outreach in collaboration with Cholamandalam Group, was held in front of Adiyogi at the Isha Yoga Center.

320 volleyball and 58 throwball teams from 700 villages had participated in the tournament, representing the villages of 16 districts of Tamil Nadu and Puducherry.

In the women’s category, Kovai Peelamedu defeated the Gobi Murugan Pudhur team while the Isha Vidhya team bagged 4th place. Sadhguru, Founder of Isha Foundation, and Mr. A. Garg, DIG (Training Wing of BSF) presented the trophies. Mr. Sudhir Rao of Cholamandalam Groups and Mr. Mohit Chauhan, musician, were also present.
Dharmapuri School’s 9th Std students got practical lessons in cultivation when they harvested ragi (Finger Millet) with guidance from the school staff and ample help from the school gardener, drivers and Aayamas. A good 15 kg were reaped from the small learning ground.
Mr. Atul Pant, (MD,Timeless Life Skills) conducted a workshop whereby students understood science on their own, through their tinkering activities.

“Learn to learn” was his catchphrase that the students grasped by the end of the session.

He addressed the senior students about the importance of learning skills, rather than gaining bookish knowledge and donated 5 Tablets that the students used to try their hand at animation.

Thank you Sir, for opening up new possibilities for the children.
