Today we started our discussions on Sculptures of India. As usual, we started with the Indus Valley Civilization and traversed our way through the Mauryan Dynasty to the Gupta Dynasty. We identified various sculptures like the 'Dancing Girl of Mohenjo-Daro' and the Pillars of Ashoka.

We concluded our class by discussing the various sculptures in the Ajanta Caves in Aurangabad. Next week too we plan to extend our learning of the sculptures of India.

We announced to the class the students who were selected as participants and alternates for the Quiz Bowl and briefly discussed some of the questions asked.  Thereafter it was a free forms session where we tried to get some of the more quiet students into sharing something they were interested in. Then students took turns posing quizes and riddles.

Next week, being the President's Day weekend, there will be no Vidyalaya.
