This is the submitted drawing from the students of the Apeejay School, Pitambura, India.
Thank you to Aparna Mishra and to all the students that were involved. Special thanks also to Malini Sridhar, Middle School coordinator who is such an inspiration in this school with her peace initiatives.
True to the school motto, ‘Soaring High is my Nature’ many students identified Peace with the freedom of expression and the liberty to think.
Meditation is an important and integral part of the school curriculum which helps in maintaining peace of mind while facing unfamiliar and nontraditional situations and challenges of the fast changing Indian and Global scenario. The school is dedicated to the culmination of happiness in life within the precincts of life.
Indian Flag Meaning:
At the time of its initial introduction, in 1931, the Indian flag’s colours represented the two main ethnic groups of India – the saffron stripe represented the Hindu people; and the green stripe represented the Muslim people. The white stripe white represented the peace desired between them and the truth. An updated meaning has interpreted the saffron symbol as representing courage and sacrifice; the white representing purity and truth; and the green standing for faith, fertility and chivalry.
The Wheel of Law’s 24 spokes are said to represent each hour of the day, as well as the endless circle of life.
