.“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.” – Plato 

Over the backdrop of the serene Gurnaam Lake , as the sun was beginning to settle down and the deep blue sky was immersing into caliginosity. That’s when the melodious sound of the sitar , the beats of tabla and the harmony of saxophone started to fill up the ambience, that is how we would  describe Swaranjali to be.

‘Swaranjali’– a Raag Yaman concert held in TB II on 11th February, was organised by the students and teachers of  Army Public School Dighi. The magical evening brought forth the amazingly talented students who enthralled the audience with their marvelous musical talents. Graced by chief guest Brig M.J Kumar (Sena Medal) and Mrs Rita M.J Kumar ,the event was thoroughly enjoyed by one and all. We were also honoured to have amongst us Shri Mahesh Dharmadhikari Ji, Regional Director CBSE, PUNE region. The concert also featured guest performers like Dr Atul Kamble on the tabla and Shri Deepak Bhanuse with the flute.

 This evening celebrating Raag Yaman captivated all the audience in such a manner  that even a complete stranger to this genre of music would have had a pleasant evening. The musicians thoroughly seemed to enjoy themselves and that is always a delight to watch and to listen!

“The most important pieces of equipment you need
for doing yoga are your own body and your mind.” 

Rodney Yee

With this thought in mind, the students of APS
DIGHI commenced the world yoga day on 21st June. In these days of
uncertainty and pandemic, it is very important to remain sane by creating a
balance between mind and body. Research shows that Yoga contributes to enhanced
physical and mental well-being and may improve resilience, mood and
self-regulation skills. That’s why in APS Dighi Yoga is taught as a subject, as
we want our students to become resilient youths.

 The idea of celebrating this day is not to limit it to one day, but to make it a regular practice. This is our heritage and we have to inculcate it as a habit in our students. With this aim in mind, the school is looking forward to carry on the yoga sessions in the academic year 2021.
