Celebrating Holi 24' and remembering the historical episode of Holi 23' at Mr. Rajnath Singh's residence!

Updated: Apr 7

 

We have a lot of occasions to celebrate in our country. Bright colours, water balloons, lavish gujiyas, and melodious songs make Holi, a unique occasion. Yes, it’s the time for celebration and spreading positive energy.


A Historical Episode in Sarvam Shakti


On Holi 2023, the colours took on an even deeper meaning for our Shaktis. Their talent and dedication landed them in the biggest event in Sarvam Shakti's history – a performance in front of the esteemed Defense Minister of India, Mr. Rajnath Singh, right at his residence! The event was graced by numerous dignitaries, including Mr. Manoj Tiwari (Member of Parliament), Dr. S Jaishankar (External Affairs Minister), and Mr. Anurag Thakur (Union Minister for Sports, Youth Affairs, and Information and Broadcasting). Even US Commerce Secretary Ms. Gina Raimondo was present wearing Indian attire!

Imagine the scene: Our Shaktis, who have graced many stages, now stand before a vast crowd and many dignitaries in an open arena. Our shaktis performed 4 Shakti Sadhana (dance) performances. Their performance unfolds – from the auspicious Ganesh Vandhana to the rousing Vande Mataram, filling the air with a surge of patriotism. The crowd couldn’t stop cheering for them. The stage hosted many other performers as well.


The day wasn't just about their performance! The Shaktis rejoiced in the festive atmosphere, dancing to songs sung by other performers and joining in a spirited rally, their voices echoing with "Bharat Mata Ki Jai!" They even had the chance to meet and play Holi with Bhojpuri superstar Manoj Tiwari. Their adventure included going through the security checkpoints and ending with delicious food.




Later, the Sarvam team visited the residences of Dr. Harsh Vardhan and Dr. Ravishanker (both Members of Parliament) for more Holi celebrations. Sweets were distributed to the Shaktis as a token of celebration at the residence. 

 

This landmark performance, and the joyous celebration surrounding it, lighted a path of confidence within our Shaktis. The Shaktis were deeply grateful to Ms. Hemangi Bhatnagar for this incredible opportunity to meet notable people. It's a moment that will forever hold a special place in the hearts of all at the Sarvam Foundation and will inspire the upcoming Shaktis!

 

Holi 2024 and Shaktis Celebrations


Teacher Interns Shine


On March 22, 2024, Our 5-teacher intern Shaktis celebrated Holi with the teachers and the Principal of the Heritage School, Dr. Sunita Swaraj. Exactly a year ago, when these Shaktis were about to go for the teacher intern interviews, they hesitated and never wanted to take the next step and be a teacher. Ms. Nehha Bhatnagar and Ms. Hemangi Bhatanagar convinced and motivated them to go for it. And now they feel happy about this life as the school takes good care of them and gives them all the facilities. Today, they are celebrating Holi as teacher interns along with other teachers in the school and they feel proud and self-worthy.










 






The Colors of Kindness


On March 24, 2024, 8 Senior Shaktis were invited as a guest to Ms. Dipanvitha’s house (Family friend of Ms. Nehha Bhatnagar and Hemangi Bhatnagar). They went to celebrate Holi and her birthday. Shaktis were well dressed and they enjoyed Keerthan and Bhajan, gave a beautiful dance performance for the song Hori Khele Raghuveera, and offered prayers to God. Flowers replaced colours, laughter filled the air, and delicious food warmed their hearts. They all had a good conversation. Ms. Dipanvitha's kindness extended to tasty chocolate desserts and thoughtful gifts, including sarees – a treasure for these girls. It was a well-spent evening and the Shaktis had the opportunity to meet new people and step outside their comfort zones.




 

This Holi 2024 was about new connections, breaking boundaries, and the sheer delight of being celebrated. As colors swirl and laughter fills the air, join us to support the Shaktis and their transformations. Together, we can spread the colors of education, health, and community to those who need it most. Let this festival be a reminder that everyone deserves a chance to paint their lives brightly.
