‘There is no love sincerer than the love of food!’- George Bernard Shaw
Unity in diversity is not just a constitutional value but a very essential value for children and a crucial aspect of teaching is, including this diversity in the classroom. Our Presidians are nurtured into individuals with a cosmopolitan outlook so that they can value the cultural amalgamation that India boasts of and food is the finest way to understand the culture of any nation or state. To practically experience this diversity, a food festival was celebrated by the students of Grade 3, at Presidium, Dwarka 16 B. It was organised by the Environmental Studies (EVS) department to strengthen the understanding of the theme ‘Food’.
The talented students represented a particular national or international cuisine by putting up food stalls of vivid delicacies. Served with warmth and zeal to enhance the flavours even more, the displayed cuisines were, ‘Gujarati’, ‘South Indian’, ‘Punjabi’, ‘Chinese’, ‘Italian’ and ‘Continental’. A few students from every group presented a dance performance of their cuisine's region to add more colours to the event and provide a sneak peek into different cultures and heritages. The students could taste the huge variety of food which was on display.
