My First Drawing of Myself

When I'm not writing......I am drawing.

My first drawing of myself when I was 17 years old.
'A work of art goes through many phases of development, but in each phase it is always a work of art. (Therein lies the importance of sketches.) A work of art is finished, from the point of view of the artist, when feeling and perception have resulted in a spiritual synthesis. - Hans Hofmann

Diwali Festival

The Diwali Celebration at Rainbow Montessori

Diwali as explained in Wikipedia:Diwali or
 Dīpāvali (Sanskrit: a row of lamps[1]) is a significant festival in HinduismBuddhismSikhism, and Jainism, and an official holiday in India.[2] Adherents of these religions celebrate Diwali as the Festival of Lights. They light diyas—cotton string wicks inserted in small clay pots filled with oil—to signify victory of good over the evil within an individual.

On the day of Diwali, many wear new and colorful Indian clothes and share sweets and snacks. We celebrate different occasions and events of different cultures in our school because it is important for us to accept others both for the ways in which we are different and also for the ways in which we are similar and to express our identity in ways that do not harden boundaries with others.

Arjit, Pranav, Mayur and Bhargav telling us stories on Diwali. 

It was a wonderful day getting to know, understand and embrace other culture, tradition and belief. It was an exciting day for everyone of course with the help of the sweets and snacks. 

Happy Diwali!
