Primary Department Pusa Road Campus

Editorial India is a land of many cultures, faiths, traditions and rituals. Different

Indian religions are like petals of one flower. This diversity extends over to the languages as well. It is a home to numerous languages, including Sanskrit which is one of the oldest languages in the world. The popular aphorism –

‘ कोस-कोस पर बदले पानी , चार कोस पर बानी’। (The language spoken in India changes every few kilometers , just like the taste of the water), very aptly depicts the linguistic diversity in India. The Vernacular Club aims to expose the students to the rich linguistic culture of our country. The various activities organised under the aegis of the club provide a platform to the students to explore the vernacular languages of India and understand that they are closely linked with each other just as the people and the rich culture & heritage of India. We hope to nurture and groom our students to become young Indians who would value and uphold the true Indian customs and traditions. Club Masters Brinda Ahuja | Pooja Datta

Bhasha Darpan The aim of the activity ‘Bhasha Darpan’ which was conducted on 26.12.17 was to develop and create interest of the students in different regional languages and thus preserve India’s multiculturalism through multilingualism. The students were shown videos which apprised them of some basic phrases used in day to day communication in Assamese, Bangla, Tamil, Kannada, Marathi, Gujarati and Punjabi. It was an interactive session wherein students were made to practise the phrases they heard and read, along with the videos screened. The activity was a joyful and enriching experience for the students.

Cultural Fiesta 'Cultural Fiesta ‘ was organised on 30.10.17. The students learnt songs in different regional languages of India and presented them in the morning assembly. Singing songs teaches children how language is constructed and assists with the acquisition of language. Thus the activity not only helped the students to appreciate the diverse cultures but also gave them an opportunity to adopt them. This authentic cultural experience made the students aware and proud about the fact that they live in a country that speaks 26 official languages and 724 recorded dialects .
