Burning bad habits

Students celebrating Dassera with a refreshing twist

Across India it is tradition to burn the effigy of Ravana on the occasion of Dassera to commemorate the victory of good over evil. RDF Matendla School added a refreshing twist to this tradition. For the second consecutive year, the staff and students (from class 5th to 10th) of the school took part in a ritual that involved burning bad habits and inculcating good ones. This ritual involved writing down on a chit of paper any bad habits the student might have and then proceeding to burn them in the holy fire. This made the students aware of their bad habits and take assertive steps in getting rid of them.
