For the first time, Julien Day School, Ganganagar got the opportunity to host a Tribal Exchange Programme. The significance of the programme lies in spreading awareness among the children of the mainstream world about those in the backward regions especially affected by the Naxalite Movement. These children have been from families which are allegedly involved in Naxalite movements involving the next generation in the same. These children belong to the borders of West Bengal, Jharkhand Odisha and other interior regions.
Unfortunately, though their situation might be, they have been guided by the State Government which has tried to bring them back to the mainstream world.
Not only did the children learn about the adverse conditions of the infants but also about the rich culture and heritage they own and nurture.
It was a valuable exchange programme where children from our school and those from the tribal communities exchanged their thoughts, opinions and experiences. They also enjoyed sharing their dance and music through wonderful performances.
The programme ended on a positive note and a relationship of understanding and cordiality was established. The cultural exchange programme was a beacon of understanding and unity, bridging diverse worlds through shared experiences. It wasn't merely about exchanging customs, languages, or traditions; it was a profound exploration of humanity's rich tapestry. As participants engaged in immersive activities, swapped stories and celebrated each other's heritage, the program fostered a symphony of cultures, painting a vibrant mosaic of global harmony. Each interaction became a brushstroke, adding depth to the canvas of mutual respect and appreciation, inspiring lifelong connections that transcended borders and languages. Through this exchange, individuals became ambassadors of empathy, spreading the message that differences are the threads that weave the beautiful fabric of our collective identity."
"We, at Julien Day School Ganganagar, believe in cultural exchange with people from various backgrounds. The opportunity given to us for this event has left us more enriched and wanting for more."
- Araina Karmakar (Class XI)
We feel immense gratitude for being a part of the Tribal Exchange Programme, where I, along with our students and staff members, could experience a rich cultural programme. Our students were happy to be a part of this unique programme and we encourage more such events to be held at Julien Day School, Ganganagar in the future.
