Excursion to Eternal Gandhi Multimedia Museum (Class V)
Maxfort School, Pitampura organized an expedition to the Eternal Gandhi Multimedia Museum on 26th Dec. 2017 for the students of Class V.
The trip commenced with a visit to ‘Martyr’s Column’, where Gandhiji was assassinated. There were footprints made of stone, signifying the steps of the Father of the Nation in his final moments. Next, was the visit to a room, where Gandhi ji lived in his final days. On display were some of his personal belongings and inspirational quotes, which will continue to be a source of pride and inspiration for future generations. The best part was a tour of the museum. Students were first shown a short presentation of the fateful, tragic day when Gandhiji was assassinated. The tour of the museum was educative and fascinating. One of the incredible features on display was the Tree of Unity, depicted by a group of people holding hands, which would light up a pole and, if any one broke the connection, the lights would go off. Another spectacle was a beam, which was divided into rotating segments, each displaying a unique ideal that Gandhiji believed in. The use of advanced multimedia to showcase Mahatma Gandhi’s life style and his principles not only induced and increased the awareness of children but also instilled in them the sense of nationalism. Each segment preaches Gandhiji’s message to the people. The place is very serene and informative. We also saw many short clippings on Gandhiji’s life, which made us respect him even more.
It was a novel learning experience for the children.
