Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan institutions are well-known across the globe for promoting the varied and vibrant Indian culture. Onam, one of the most colorful harvest festivals of South India (Kerala) was celebrated in the Indian Educational School (IES) (Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan) auditorium with fun, frolic and feast on 5 September, 2017. 

The staff dedicated the day of the celebration, which happened to be Teachers’ Day, to their beloved Principal, T. Premkumar, (who has been recognized by the CBSE for the CBSE Teachers’ Award 2016), as a mark of their immense love, reverence and gratitude to their beloved mentor par excellence.

An amazing ‘pookkalam’ (floral carpet) set by the womenfolk of the IES fraternity at the reception area of the institution welcomed everyone. The Staff Club of Bhavans Kuwait hosted a cultural fiesta comprised of a ‘thiruvathirakali’ (teachers of Jack and Jill, Mangaf) ‘the mega three layer thiruvathirakkali’ with more than 50 dancers (teachers of IES), the traditional ‘mohiniyaattam’ (teachers of SIS), Vanchippaatu by the menfolk of the three schools, skits and musical performances led by the very talented singer Mahesh Iyer (Principal, SIS). The icing on the cake was the visit of Mahabali, the demon king, in his majestic splendor, and the audience responded with rounds of applause.

During the festive occasion, T. Premkumar, the Principal of IES, was conferred a golden rondure by Mr. N. K. Ramachandran Menon, the Chairman, Bhavans Middle East, to appreciate his accolades as a teacher and a principal.

The celebration was accompanied by the cutting of a massive cake in the presence of his better half Madam Sudha Ramachandran, as well as the Principals and Vice Principals of  Bhavans, Kuwait.
