Ganesha Chaturthi, also known as Vinayaka Chaturthi, is a Hindu festival celebrating the arrival of Lord Ganesh to earth from Kailash Parvat with his mother Goddess Parvati/Gauri. This year, in Sri Chamundi Scout Group, the festival was celebrated for three days. SCSG also encouraged members to make eco-friendly ganesha idols, which were kept alongside the main idol, during the pooja.
Independence Day is celebrated every year on 15th august. It is a national holiday. On 15th august 1947 India got freedom from British government. On this day the PM of India addresses the people of our nation and informs them about the strategy and achievements of our country.
The Best Cub Masters
A Cub Master/Flock Leader provides young cubs and bulbuls much needed guidance. They teach cubs and bulbuls basic skills, and how to properly conduct themselves, preparing them for the bright and vibrant futures that lie ahead. In this article I would like to talk about my cub masters, who I consider to be the best. (Vivek and Sanketh)
Pioneering & First Aid
Pioneering and First Aid are some of the cornerstones in scouting. Extensive knowledge of these two subjects is required for progression in scouting. This knowledge and application of it can prove to be advantageous in many situations that one might come across in life.
My Journey in SCSG
As a Cub:
I joined Sri Chamundi Scout Group (SCSG) when I was 7 year old boy on 2nd July, 2005 (My Birthday), thanks to my sister. As a young boy I was only playing around with my friends without any knowledge of scouting and its impact on me. When I was introduced into Sixer system I gradually got to know about badges, pack leadership and scouting culture. My endorphin was high during camps and I started to participate in all activities during camps, rallies, jamborees and other events. I earned my Chaturtha Charan Badge, which is the second highest badge in cub section.
Refreshing!!! That’s the feeling I have of the beautiful rain trek in the Agumbe ghats. As always good to be in our great western ghats. My friends and I made a magnificent nine and started on a friday night of a regular weekend. We hired a TT to drive us close to our destination. As usual the route from Bengaluru was Nelmangala, Kunigal and Hassan. From Hassan, take route towards Belur, then to Chikmagalur, Aldur, Balehonnur and Sringeri. From Sringeri to Kigga.
Global warming occurs when carbon dioxide (CO2) and other air pollutants collect in the atmosphere and absorb sunlight and solar radiation that have bounced off the earth’s surface. These heat-trapping pollutants—specifically carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, water vapour are known as greenhouse gases. Normally this radiation would escape into space, but these pollutants, which can last for years to centuries in the atmosphere, trap the heat and cause the planet to get hotter. This is called the greenhouse effect.
Why Join Scouting?
Scouting or the scout movement, is a movement with a strong focus on the outdoors and survival skills that aims to support young people in their physical, mental and spiritual development so that they may play constructive roles in society. It is based on the principle of “One Promise, Law and Motto”.
