Suryadatta Education Foundation is committed to achieve quality education in a holistic manner. Towards this end we encourage our students to participate in events which leave a lasting positive effect on their personality and outlook towards life, society and the nation. Some of these events have helped us in creating National Records and this has added immensely to the self confidence of the students and boosted their morale. In order to provide such unique experiences to the students, Suryadatta Education Foundation has decided to hold another event to try and create yet another record.
1100 students along with teachers and all associates participated in a unique event at the Central Hub of Suryadatta Institute of Management, Bavdhan, Pune with 1100 saplings of ‘Tulsi’ marking the outline of the map of India on Tuesday 9th July 2019.
Our borders are guarded by our brave soldiers day and night. We, as a nation will remain eternally grateful to them and offer them unflinching support. And there are innumerable ways to do that. Suryadatta Group of institutes has come up with a very innovative concept to express our solidarity and our patriotism – by invoking the blessings of Tulsi Mata for securing our borders.
Holy Basil or tulsi is a powerful herb and is believed to have endless miraculous and medicinal values and has been worshipped and highly valued in India for thousands of years. It has been an age old custom in India to worship it two times a day, water it and light lamps near it in the morning and evening. It was, and still is, believed to protect the whole family from evil and bring good luck.
It is our firm belief that if we plant small saplings of tulsi along our border pillars the same effect would be had on our soldiers, who are our extended family. Its medicinal properties like reducing stress, preventing heart disease, chemopreventive properties will bless our soldiers with good health & longevity. Our faith in its miraculous powers will invoke blessings on the safety and security of our borders.
As a symbolic gesture towards this end, the students of Suryadatta, ranging from pre primary to post graduation lined the borders of a map of India, created by our digital media students with 1100 saplings of tulsi. To symbolize the rising reputation of India on the world stage and to showcase our philosophy of ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’, they incorporated a Globe inside the map of India.
