CMS creates a better future for all children by maximising
their opportunities through quality education and initiatives for unity and development.
The 150th anniversary year of Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi, was made even more special at the Republic Day Parade with the CMS Republic Day Tableau focussing on the teachings of the Mahatma based upon Sarvadharma Sambhav (equality of all religions), Jai Jagat (Victory of the World), Vasudhaiv Kutumbkam (the whole earth is but one family). Mahatma Gandhi taught us tyag (self-sacrifice), tapasya (penance), ahimsa (non-violence), satya (truth) and showed us the importance of simple living and high thinking. It was with these weapons that he was able to inspire the masses of India and lead them towards freedom and spiritual progress. Today, when there is so much of discord and disharmony in the world, the only way to end this is through love and self-sacrifice. The CMS Tableau aims at wiping out hatred from human hearts and show them that mankind needs to unite under one banner setting aside differences of caste, creed, race, colour and religion. The CMS motto of Jai Jagat or Victory to the World, motivates every individual to work for the common good of all and serve all humanity, for the progress of the human race is possible only when all are happy, all are at peace with each other and within themselves.
This unique tableau has been conceptualized by the CMS Founder, Dr Jagdish Gandhi. Several engineers and architects have contributed to making it a magnificent piece of architecture. After the Republic Day Parade, it will be placed at CMS Kanpur Road Campus and students of several schools and colleges will be able to study it closely and imbibe its valuable teachings. Highlighting the main features of the tableau, Dr Jagdish Gandhi informed that a child holding the globe at this tableau is spreading message of 'Vasudhaiv Kutumbkam' in the world and on the other hand a temple, mosque, church, gurudwara, baudh vihar, Baha'i temple etc. are shown under one roof showcasing that all these religions come from one Almighty God. CMS children are dancing on the song 'Jai Jagat, Jai Jagat, Jai Jagat Purkare Ja, Doosre Ke Sukh Ke Vaste Apna Sukh Bisare Ja...' under this roof. A child representing Mahatma Gandhi is spreading the message of 'Vasudhaiv Kutumbkam' and 'Jai Jagat' to the masses and on the other hand a life-size statue of Mahatma Gandhi is placed on it with the message of forming a 'World Parliament' for establishing peace, security and order in the world. CMS believes that this tableau is extremely relevant for the modern age because unity and peace in the world can be established only by treading the path of self-sacrifice, truth and ahimsa shown by Mahatma Gandhi.
Wishing all students the very best of luck for the annual/Board exams, and invoking God's blessing for every child's good performance in the exams.
Dr. Bharti Gandhi, Founder-Director
The month long 27th Children's Summer Village Camp, 'Peace Has a 100 Names' came to an end on 24 January 2020. The camp began on 28th December 2019 when young delegates from various parts of the world arrived here at Lucknow, eager to participate in a month-long Children's Camp. There were 13 participating countries viz USA, Brazil, Canada, Costa Rica, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Norway, Sweden, Thailand and India. On 30 December, Chief Guest, Dr Indramani Tripathi, Nagar Ayukta, Lucknow inaugurated the Camp. On 17 January was the Open Day of the Camp whence each delegation presented its cultural song or dance item on stage and interacted with the public. Camp life afforded the children to interact closely despite differences in race, language, culture and religion and form far-reaching permanent friendships in a multilingual and multicultural setting. Peace activities were especially organized for the children, planned by the adult leaders. Camp life included Flag time, peace games, energizers, activities, shopping sprees, outings, national nights, bonfires, songs and lullabies etc. On the National Nights, each delegation cooked its traditional meal one by one for the rest of the campers.
The days just flew past till it was time to leave. Tears welled up in the eyes of the participants as the bonds of friendship had taken deep roots inside. 'We meet but to part,' and so the day of farewells arrived on 24 January. Emails and addresses were exchanged and there was firm resolve to maintain the spirit of unity and peace built up at the camp for the rest of life.
