On Tuesday we held Samathuva Pongal at the School. This celebrates the apparent northern movement of the sun from the Tropic of Capricorn to the Tropic of Cancer which heralds the onset of summer and the harvest. We were honoured to host a celebration in collaboration with the International Association for Religious Freedom. The function was open to all irrespective of caste or creed and not only pupils and staff but many local villagers enjoyed the fun. Pongal was prepared (a rice dish) and consumed with relish. Pupils were amused to see their Principal and senior staff dancing with obvious delight.
