Musical workshop for Children in JHS

The Fundamentals of Jain Heritage School were in for a musical treat last week when the Bansal Band came calling. Arranged in collaboration with SaPa, Harpreet Bansal and her team conducted a musical workshop for the children and introduced the basics of instrumental music.

The children were initially fascinated by the Double Bass, a large instrument very similar to the Cello, played by Adrian Myhr as it was very new to some of them. Vojtech Prochazka played the Harmonium and Harpreet played the Violin. The raga based fusion varied from the tranquil to the energetic and even the hyperactive children listened with rapt attention to the aural magic created by the trio.

Harpreet Bansal, brought up in the Hindustani classical music tradition is the heartbeat of the band and her team members ably support her with their passion and musical acumen. The Band received the Norwegian Art Council’s grant for ensembles for the year 2014.

Efforts like these go a long way in igniting the minds of young children and trigger their imagination to be creative in their future endeavours.

The main intention of conducting this program was to recognize the importance of community helpers and to respect them for the work they do. Winners of competitions were rewarded with prizes in the assembly. This program was a sign of love and affection for the community helpers, and the respect people have towards them.

This year’s program was planned as a surprise, and none of the students were told of the celebrations. The students had come expecting a full day of classes and schoolwork. Grade 5 student Ram said, "We were expecting a normal school day, we never thought we would be celebrating Children’s Day today. I was so happy when the performance started. My favourite was the skit they enacted by imitating us in the classroom." He adds with a giggle.

The teachers put up a medley of performances ranging from skits to tongue twisters, which kept the students on their toes. Ms. Kusuma, teacher for Grade 4 said, "It was fun preparing for the event. The kids were so excited, to see our performances. There isn’t a better way to celebrate Children’s Day for us."

SPIC MACAY has been conducting many enriching programs at JHS. Their programs give students many insights into folk arts and culture. The program with Warsi Brothers introduced the students to the world of Qawwali music.

The program began with the introduction of the chief guest, by the students. Then the performance began the Warsi brothers, introduced the songs before performing them. The songs had varying themes from spiritual to popular beats, and resonated strongly with the students. The last song “Duma Dum Mast Kalandar” was a crowd pleaser and, ended the function on an impressive note.

Mrs. Rani Sebastian, school event coordinator said, “The event highlighted the importance of our cultural art forms, and our roots. The students were exposed to Qawwali music, which they would not have found in the mainstream culture. It opens their eyes to the rich tapestry of our classical forms.”

SPIC MACAY, an organization that promotes classical music among students, conducts this yearly programme.  The musical duo hail from a lineage of royal singers. The Warsi brothers and their eight accompanist are Qawwali singers, known for their soul stirring melodies and brilliant improvisations.

The roots of Qawwali can be traced back to 8th century Persia. Delhi's Sufi saint Amir Khusro Dehlavi of the Chisti order of Sufis is credited with fusing the Persian and Indian musical traditions to create Qawwali as we know it today .Qawwali is a form of Sufi Devotional musical performance. A group of Qawwali musicians typically consists of eight or nine men including a lead singer, one or two side singers, one or two harmoniums, and percussion. They start with an instrumental prelude where the main melody is played on the harmonium, accompanied by the tabla, and which may include improvised variations of the melody.

The Warsi brothers have many laurels under their belt, and have always given their most    exciting performances at JHS. There is no doubt that the students of JHS are eagerly awaiting their melodies.


SPIC MACAY (Society for the Promotion of Indian Classical Music And Culture Amongst Youth), is a voluntary movement founded in 1977 by Dr Kiran Seth, a Professor at IIT-Delhi. SPICMACAY’s intention is to enrich the quality of formal education by increasing awareness about different aspects of Indian heritage and the values embedded in it.

Kannada Rajyotsava celebration in Jain Heritage School

Tomorrow is a very important day for Kannadigas all over the world. On 1 November 1956, all the Kannada speaking states were all merged to form Karnataka.

The air vibrates in excitement at Jain Heritage School (JHS).  Yellow and red colour flags flutter in the breeze. There is a flurry of activity in JHS. Students are busy decorating the auditorium; some are putting final touches to various programmes. They are eagerly awaiting the Karnataka Rajyotsava celebration, which is going to be celebrated tomorrow by classes I &III, and on November 2 by classes II to VIII. The programmes have been rehearsed to absolute perfection, and all that remains is the performance.

The two days will be the perfect treat for the students. The chief guests are Smt.Leeladevi.R.Prasad (Ex-Cultural Minister of Karnataka) for November 1 and Dr. Doddarange Gowda (Famous writer and composer) for November 2, two very eminent personalities who have added to the rising excitement of the students.

The students have put in lot of hard work and effort, with the guidance of the faculty and management. The students are ready to show their patriotism to their motherland, and hope to make the event a success.
