India has a rich history of multi hued and fascinating traditions, culture and mythology. Each cultural tradition and festival, as varied as the number of communities that observe and celebrate them, bring with them their specific identity which contribute to the fabric of our communities. In an effort to bring history to the present, RDF schools not only impart high quality education, but also value education, especially the need to preserve our valuable cultural heritage. Therefore the stories, art, craft and folklore associated with each festival, regardless of community, is discussed in detail with the children. Through such activities, we hope to develop a sense of compassion and shared beliefs with all communities and enhance their sense of spirituality. Thus we hope that each generation that passes through RDF school gates will play a part in conserving our cultural traditions and festivals wisely.
