                         AMULYASHODHA – TREASURE OF ANTIQUES


“History is the witness that testifies the passing of the time; it illumines reality, vitalizes memory, provides guidance in daily life and brings us tidings of antiquity.”

In this era of globalization a good education is very important for each one of us in order to have a successful future.  As a part of learning, an educational trip was organized by our institution for Class VII on 12th October 2016, to stimulate learning beyond the textbook.

The students were escorted by concerned teachers to Amulyashodha, a museum, which is built in the middle of an amazing green space on N.R. Pura Road, about 15kms from Shimoga. Mr. Khandobarao, a retired history lecturer of Shimoga, established the Amulyashodha Museum in fond remembrance of his wife Yashodha.  The museum houses a variety of ancient coins, bronze vessels, swords, wooden musical instruments, weapons, lanterns etc.  This educational trip was the source of an integrated project for the students.  Hence, the students keenly observed and studied the sources available and well equipped themselves with the information required for the project.  Also the talk of the able orator Mr Khandobarao was very informative for them.

The aim of this field trip was to provide an experiential learning, knowledge of ancient artifacts, preserved culture and tradition of our country. Totally, the students had a taste of history with a panoramic view of Amulyashodha Museum and understood that museums are the mirrors of our rich culture and heritage.

“Nothing beats an exciting hands-on experience to deepen learning.  The magic of a field trip isn’t just the subject.  It’s the break in routine and adventure that opens up children’s minds to new things”.

As a part of learning, a field trip to Kuvempu Prathistana at Kuppalli near Thirthahalli was organized on 12th October 2016 to give a thorough knowledge of our National Poet K V Puttappa for class VIII. Also this educational field trip had a motto of highlighting how nature influences an individual’s life and to study about the importance of sources of history.

As per schedule, students along with teachers reached Kuppalli at 11am with great fervour.   First they were taken to “Kavi Mane” which is a peaceful abode, Museum and treasury of the great poet’s literary work and house hold articles.  The house is preserved like a monument by Kuvempu Prathistana as it is an evidence of the simplicity of the poet.

“Kavishaila” is another significant place where the poet used to spend most of his time writing poetries.  And also it is the tomb of the poet as it was one of his favourite places when he was alive.

Students were given an integrated project of Kannada, English, Science, Social and Maths related to this educational trip.  The students observed the nature and available resources keenly and collected the information about the topic related to the integrated project. Totally it was like all were in an entirely different world and different century where the utensils and household articles of the god gifted poet were made out of stone and wood.  The wood carvings of the door and pillar of the house were amazing and students felt that it was a wonderful experience.

Visit to Neernalli

Imparting the real life experience is need of the present day teaching-learning process. But giving real life experience in all the aspects inside the classroom is impossible. Hence an educational trip was organized for class X children on 26th  October 2016  to Sirsi where they were able to know many things like Dairy farming, agriculture, use of machineries in day-today life etc.

In the morning we visited a dairy farm in Neernalli near Sirsi. It belonged to Mrs. Veda Hegde. There our children came to know about the diseases of cows, their yielding, food habits, insemination procedures, importance of cleanliness, use of a number of agricultural machineries in milking and cleaning, Bio Gas Plant etc.  Students could see Seventy cattle; together they produce nearly six hundred liters of milk per day. It was such an impressive visit that most of the children actively participated in the discussion.

Later in the day they visited a Rock Garden ‘Shalmali Vana’ where one could see the sculptures of different animals, life style of tribal people, beauty of Nature etc. every visitor was appreciating the imagination which created that garden.

To end the trip and to give a little more fun in the trip, we took the children to ‘Sahasralinnga’ where they played a while in the water and got the experience of walking on a rope bridge.

Finally it is true that this trip served the children in different ways. It was the complete blending of knowledge and pleasure. Hence after the trip they are asked to prepare an integrated project on dairy farming.

October 1st and 2nd was a very remarkable day as far as Hongirana was concerned as a versatile music director Mr B V Venkatesh was there with Hongirana family.  A Music Workshop “Ninaad” was organized in Hongirana in which a couple of other school students were also invited to take part.  The proficient Music Director mesmerized our day scholars, hostellers and those other school students with his wonderful vocal power and taught a few fantastic songs.   It was an amazing experience for everybody who was a part of this programme.

At the same time, a Drawing competition was organized for Class IX & X.  Students who were interested in Drawing took part in this programme while those who were interested in music took part in Music Workshop “Ninaad”.  The theme was to draw any portrait reflecting the nature.  Students had portrayed amazing art on paper within 2 hours.    The most brilliant ones were selected class-wise and were given prizes.


Vishal S R of Class X says that “Firstly I felt little lethargic in taking part but later when I got to know about the theme, I was thrilled and portrayed a wonderful nature on paper, for which I got 1st prize.  I wish to see more and more of these kind of competitions in coming days.”


Mr Shivaraj opines as “I saw lot of enthusiasm in children while they were taking part in this competition.  A few of them had no interest, but when they saw others drawing, even they developed zeal to draw and participated in good spirit”.




As a part of refreshment to children after a long exam schedule, the students of Class V to X were taken out to one of the famous pilgrims Shringeri Sharada Peeta on 9th of October, 2016.  12 hostel teachers accompanied the students as escorts.

They left the campus at around 8am in the morning with great spirit.    As it was Navarathri and especially Durgashtami, being one of the Shaktipeetas in Karnataka, Shringeri Sharada Peeta was well decorated.  Amidst divinity, the majestic flow of river Tungabhadra gave children a great soothing relief.


Sathvik A S of Class IX opines “It was ultimate due to Navarathri decorations.  We enjoyed watching fishes in river Tungabhadra.   Tapovana was a very peaceful garden, totally it was very refresher after exams”.


Mr Veeresh said that “Students enjoyed the most travelling to Shringeri.  It was very refreshing for students.  Though it was a long tiresome journey, students felt very relaxed after entering the shrine and felt comforted watching fishes in water”.




On 10th of October 2016, there was an essay writing competition arranged for students of Class Ix & X, about the current Kaveri Issue.  The topic was about “River Kaveri – for Karnataka or for Tamil Nadu”. The students felt energetic about the topic as they had read a lot about it in Newspapers.  Choice was given to children either to choose Kannada or English.  Later students were given opportunity to review about the topic and speak about their opinion.  Most of the students felt that Right on Kaveri river lies with Kannadigas.  A couple of them opined that the concerned authorities should talk about the issue peacefully and take suitable decision instead of following violence and destroying the public property which is a national waste.  Totally it was an informative session for children as each and everybody felt that it was a good platform to put forth their opinion.


Akash H A of Class X said, “As it was an ongoing issue of River Kaveri, we felt that we had an opportunity to churn out our thoughts and express our views about the current affair”.


Mr Adarsh K B said that “Students felt enthusiastic in expressing their views about the hot issue and gave their remarks when they were asked to review it.  It was amazing to hear and know how matured their thoughts were”.

At around the same time a motivational video was telecasted for Class V to VIII.  It was around the topic “Swach Bharath Abhiyaan” and “Importance of food”.  It was an eye opener for those children who waste food without a second thought.  Students felt that it was really touching and also said that they would try to keep their surroundings clean and never waste food and water as they understood their value while watching videos.


Venkatesh E of Class VIII said “It created awareness in us about the difficulty the farmers face in growing crops and we take just a few seconds in wasting food.  Also we got motivated about keeping our surroundings clean when we watched a video in which a blind woman uses a dustbin, but we with all our senses throw litters here and there.  Here, we felt that we shouldn’t waste food and took a decision to use dustbin henceforth”.


Mrs Mamata of Hostel said that “Students got the Life skills & moral values about wastage of food and difficulties of farmers in growing them.  Also they got awareness about Swach Bharath Abiyan and understood their responsibilities”.

A motivational talk was arranged for residential students on 16th October 2016, by Mr Navaeen, Lecturer in English, about the Responsibilities of each individual as a student and as a child to the society he/she lives in.  He said that they have to work hard, achieve their individual goals and make their parents happy which is their primary responsibility.  This in house activity was  for about 2 Hrs was for Class IX and X, in which in the later part of the motivational talk session, Mr Naveen gave a poetry and asked every student to express his/her perception about it. This was really a productive exercise for the students in which they took part in full zeal.


Sowmya B N of Class X opined “it was one of the eye opening motivational talk for us where Naveen Sir made us understand our duties and responsibilities towards society and parents.  We enjoyed even reading the poem and spoke about our perception about it.


Mr Sunil said that, “Mr Naveen elicited what were their primary responsibilities, and he also asked what would be the students response, when the parents come to take the report of their progress.  Later highlighted the pains that a parent undertakes especially mother who endures lot of pain to bring the child into this earth and the kind of patience that a father exhibits when it comes his responsibilities.  A few children literally felt very emotional and were in tears realizing their lethargic nature in giving a blunt answer will do good in next exam.  Totally it was a very touching programme”.

On the same day Mrs Nalina, a senior teacher from Primary Section gave a motivational talk for students of Class V to VIII.  First of all she stressed on the point that every individual needs to have his/her goals set ahead in life.  And restated how important it is to work hard to reach their goals. A video clipping was shown about the person who worked hard studiously gets appointed as the Principal of the college and the person who was lethargic works as a peon under him.  This helped the students becoming studious about their studies.  She highlighted that even a physically challenged person can achieve greater things in life and questioned children what were they waiting for then.


Souradithya of Class VI expressed his heart felt feelings and said “We all understood that we should have a goal in life in first and foremost place.  As per video it was very clear that there is ‘n’ number of opportunities to reach the goal.  And it becomes easy once we choose the right path amongst them.



Mr Veeresh says that “Students realized that by hard work they can achieve more in life.  Also video shown highlighted the right team spirit also produces good results.  It was a real virtual programme of the day for the students”.



September is the month of tests and exams.  Extra effort has to be put in studies for better performance.  Hence, there’s rigorous preparation for the exam by the students.  In between their studies, the students of Classes V to VIII have been trained by Mr. Niranjana, drama teacher and Ms. Draupadi, the dance teacher.

It was a well organized in house programme of 45 minutes witnessed by all hostel inmates.  The programme began with a prayer by Baby Deepa followed by a folk dance, a group song, a choreography dance, another group song and a 20 minutes play Sethuve, depicting the struggle of labour class approximately around 1960 about the issue of constructing a bridge from Ambargodlu to Tumari, Sagara.   The noble theme of this drama was to depict the then prevailing  social evils like poverty, illiteracy and exploitation of labour class in our society. It was a fabulous programme anchored by  Kannada teacher Mr. Sunil.

Hongirana Hostel students get a lot of life building and value developing activities along with their regular academics.
