To reinforce the values of respect, love, compassion, dedication and humility in the young children, The Pre-Primary and the Primary Wing of DPS celebrated the mega event ‘Bal Ramayan- The Treasure Trove of Values’ in the form of a lyrical dace drama.
    The program started with the welcome of the parents and the traditional Lamp lighting ceremony by the Principal, the Headmistresses and the invited guests.
    The lyrical ballads or the ‘Chhands’ had the audience glued to the stage and the conversations between God Vishnu, goddess Laxmi, the old and the Contemporary Narad unfolded the story of Ramayana from Ram’s birth to the end of Ravana and Ram’s accession to the throne.
    The songs and birth dance celebrating the birth of Lord Ram, the power-packed Ravana dance, the Hanuman dance with the vanar sena and the concluding Dance depicting the victory of good values over evil values mesemerised the audiences and left them wanting for more.
