Panchtatva: The Essence of Life

We all must be aware of Panchtatva. The word ‘Panchatatva’ originates from Sanskrit, where “Panch” stands for Five and “Tatva” indicates Elements. Following the universal law of life, everything on this planet is composed of five basic elements. These are Akash (Sky or Space), Vayu (Air), Jal (Water), Agni (Fire), and Prithvi (Earth). To sensitize students about 5 elements of existence, the following were the activities conducted: Dance performance, Powerpoint presentation, Graffiti, Pack it up & Resource consumption graph. The complete focus was on their holistic development and also making them involved in international practices. Most effectively, globalites appreciated the significance of rich resources available, their importance & the need to conserve them. Overall, it was an enlightening activity. Lastly, understanding the fundamental attributes of these elements helps us in assessing our own latent power, inherent natural traits, character building & guided us towards a better awareness of our environment
