Yesterday at Shanti Bhavan we celebrated Christmas in advance (next Sunday the children leave school for winter break). Although no religion is taught in this school, major holidays are respected and celebrated. Christians are found all across India, with major populations in parts of South India.
The evening was full of carols, followed by games and activities organized by the students of the eleventh grade. Tamil Nadu does not escape globalization, and we even had a small Santa Claus on stage. We also had an special dinner that was delicious.
