On the auspicious occasion of Maharashtra Day i.e. 1st May also known as ‘Maharashtra Diwas’ St. Teresa’s Institute of Education along with its staff and students organised a short program to mark this historic occasion. Prof. Joan Lopes was the incharge of the program. There were total 55 paricipants present for the program. This day is celebrated to commemorate the creation of Marathi speaking state of Maharashtra. This day is celebrated as Workers Day or Labourers Day all around the world.
The program began sharp at 9:00 am with one of our batch mate Ruth Dmello presenting on the Marathi dialects with Maharastrain costume. Then Sr. Elvina began with a prayer session and then Romaine Dsouza our batchmates spoke great words of reflection on St. Joseph- The Patron of all workers. Sr. Elvina from the congregation of St. Teresa’s Institution continued with her prayer service wherein she spoke about the importance of work in our life. And work is fundamental to the dignity of the person. Also a short prayer was offered to all the people who lost their jobs during these trying times of pandemic. Followed by the prayer a beautiful song Two Thousand Years Ago was played which was focused on St. Joseph. A video was presented highlighting the importance of water in our daily lives. Thereafter, Ms-Ruth Dmello and Ms Kanishka highlighted the importance of Maharashtra day and Labourers day in detail.
The program ended with a vote of thanks by our principal Sr. Tanuja Waghmare. It was a resounding success thanks to the efforts of our batch mates and special thanks to Joan ma’am. Indeed the event was a great success.
