Padma Bhushan Sitar Maestro Pandit Debu Chaudhari Amarjyoti Gohil


Performing Arts is an integral part of the development of each human being. Plato had emphasized the importance of the arts in education which includes music dance theatre and visual arts. It is part of our culture to include the fine arts into the school curriculum.

Fine arts like these provide the learners with non-academic benefits such as promoting self-esteem motivation creativity, improved emotional expression as well as social harmony, and appreciation of the diversity we have.

As a part of this initiation, Padma Bhushan Sitar Maestro Pandit DEBU CHAUDHURI was invited to the institution. The event started with the lighting of the lamp to evoke divine presence. The students sang a prayer song along with the music teachers which was very mesmerizing.

Pandit Debu Chaudhuri was a man with a magical touch. He was a guru in the true sense. He involved the children and gave them a basic introduction to the instruments and specially SITAR. He gave the children, an opportunity of their lifetime to sing with him and learn about the ragas and tala. He played a few ragas on the sitar and a few bhajans too with the children.

He took an interaction session with the children and answered each and every question the kids wanted to ask him. He encouraged them into learning instruments specially sitar. He guided the kids that they too could be good artists by doing reaaz for regular hours in a day and respecting their gurus.

Amar Jyoti mam felicitated the invitees by offering them mementos, flowers and honored them by offering them shawls. She then addressed the students said it was an honor for the institution that the children were blessed with an opportunity to interact with such a dignitary.

Our heartfelt thanks and regards to Mr. Uday Bhatt– coordinator of the organization Spic May in their initiative to bring such great artists to spend some quality time with school children. We are indeed honored that our school had hosted this event and that it was a great success.
