Janmashtami was celebrated at Amrita Vidyalayam on August 22, 2017. Children dressed up as Krishna and Radha for the celebrations. A puja was performed by staff and students; bhajans and aarti were also conducted as part of the celebrations. Songs related to Janmastami were played throughout the day, and the fragrance of flowers, the soothing aroma of burning camphor and the jingle of bells filled the atmosphere. Prasad was distributed to the children after the puja. The involvement of the children in the celebrations at such a tender age was worth applauding.
