JMA Pilani Celebrates Mahatma Gandhi 150 Jayanti International Day of Non-Violence

For the school which has established a rich tradition of celebrating various days of national and international importance, observing Gandhi Jayanti is much more than a routine. If there is one educational institution at Pilani in India today where hundreds of students participate in Gandhi Jayanti celebrations, then beyond doubt it must be JMA which is one among the most sought after schools in Pilani. Who else but the Mahatma could have said "Non-violence is the greatest force at the disposal of mankind. It is mightier than the mightiest weapon of destruction devised by the ingenuity of man."

Befittingly, the International Day of Non-Violence is marked on 2 October, the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi, leader of the Indian independence movement and pioneer of the philosophy and strategy of non-violence. The message of UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres for the year goes as “Gandhi constantly highlighted the gap between what we do, and what we are capable of doing. On this International Day, I urge each and every one of us to do everything in our power to bridge this divide as we strive to build a better future for all." Incidentally 02 October also marks birthday of Sri Lal Bahadur Sastri who is a tall leader not measured by height but by achievements.

Smt Jamuna Mishra Academy JMA was established in the year 2004 at Pilani which is considered as Oasis in the desert state of Rajasthan. Alumni of JMA Pilani are pursuing higher education in various institutions which include Birla Institute of Technology and Science BITS Pilani which is one of the Institutions of Eminence and Banasthali Vidyapith which is not only in various Quacquarelli Symonds QS Rankings but also in Times Higher Education THE World Rankings as one among the best 3 - 4% global universities and Second Best Women’s University in the world.

Since 2019 marks 150 years of Gandhiji birthday, the celebrations started from 12 Sep with a Gandhi quote prominently displayed on a board at the school entrance. The program by the junior section 0n 01 Oct 2019 was truly mesmerizing. On 02 Oct 2019 in the senior section after a talk by Principal Mrs Booma Natarajan, a Sarva Dharam Prartna was organized by the highly talented JMA Choir which included the favorite bhajans of Gandhiji such as Vaisnav janto and Raghupathi Raghav Rajaram.

Team JMA took a rally with students accompanied by NCC cadets as well as Bharat Scouts & Guides across Pilani town and performed Street Play – Nukad Natak highlighting Swachh Bharat, Say No to Plastic Bags, Save Water, Beti Bachao - Beti Padhao etc at prominent places of Pilani like city centre Bud Chowk (near Raja Birla Haveli), Uttam Super Store junction and Nutan market Pilani bus stand. The events were extensively covered by media.

Team JMA also joined the colourful Gandhi Jayanti celebrations at Vidya Vihar Nagar Palika organized by Chairman Dr Rajendra Pareek.
