Navodaya Emblem and Its Meaning

JNV Emblem and Its Meaning

Early Morning Assembly, a formal gathering of class is intended as mini scale of activities throughout day leading for concentration, dedication, acquiring knowledge & information, creativity, alertness, raising self-confidence of students to face the audience.

The House Masters/Mistresses and Associate House Masters/Mistresses will ensure that a proper training and rehearsal in modulation of words and sentences to be spoken in the morning assembly are prepared and presented properly.

A moral talk is presented by MOD of the day everyday to inculcate values among the students.

Even a speech by each student each class on rotation basis is included to enhance the communication skill. A book’s review is organized once in a week so as to enhance language skill.

Suddenly all old times are coming to my mind… Do you remember the morning prayer you used to sing during your school days? I still do… Suddenly felt like listening to that song once again…

Our school, Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya is run by Govt of India’s HRD Ministry, has nationwide presence, with almost one school per district. Before we proceed, look at the detailed description of the logo of JNV (I was under the impression that the two black heads represented one’s father and mother…) More info at navodaya.gov.in

Below is the lyrics of the song, “Hum Nava Yug Gi…” song we used to sing daily at Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya.

Navodaya Prayer

हम नवयुग की नई भारती, नई आरती !
हम स्वराज्य की रिचा नवल, भारत की नवलय हों
नव सूर्योदय, नव चंद्रोदय, हमी नवोदय हों !!

Hum navyug ki nayi bhaarti… nayi aarti
Hum swarajya ki richa naval bharat ki navlaya hon
Nav suryodaya nav chandrodaya, humi navoday hon 

रंग जाति पद भेद रहित, हम सब का एक भगवान हो
संतान हैं धरती माँ की हम, धरती पूजा स्थान हो !
पूजा के खिल रहे कमल दल, हम भव जल में हो
सर्वोदय के नव बसंत के, हमी नवोदय हो !!

Rang jaati pad bhaid rahit hum sab ka ek bhagwaan ho
Santaan hain dharti maan ki hum dharti pooja sthaan ho
Pooja ke khil rahe kamal dal hum bhav jal mein ho
Sarvoday ke nav basant ke humi navoday ho 

मानव हैं हम हलचल हम, प्रकृति के पावन वेश में
खिलें फलें हम में संस्कृति इस, अपने भारत देश की !
हम हिमगिरि हम नदियाँ हम, सागर की लहरें हो
जीवन की मंगलमाटी के, हमी नवोदय हो !!

Maanva hai hum halchal hum, prakriti ke pavan vesh mein
Khilen falen hum mein sanskriti is apne bharat desh ki
Hum himgiri hum nadia hum sagar ki lahre ho
Jeevan ki mangalmati ke hami navoday ho 

हरी दूधिया क्रांति शांति के, श्रम के वंदनवार हो
भागीरथ हम धरती माँ के, सूरम पहरेदार हो !
सत शिव सुन्दर की पहचान, बनाए जग में हम
अंतरिक्ष के यान ग्यान के, हमी नवोदय हो !!

Hari duudhiya kranti shanti ke shram ke bandanvaar ho
Bhagirath hum dharti maa ke suuram pehredaar ho
Sat shiv sunder ki pehchan banaye jug mein hum
Antriksh ke yaan gyan ke hami navoday ho 

हम नवयुग की नई भारती, नई आरती
हम स्वराज्य की रिचा नवल, भारत की नवलय हों!
नव सूर्योदय नव चंद्रोदय, हमी नवोदय हों
हमी नवोदय हो, हमी नवोदय हो, हमी नवोदय हो !!

Hum navyug ki nayi bharti… nayi aarti
Hum swarajya ki richa naval bharat ki navlaya hon
Nav suryodaya nav chandrodaya, humi navoday hon
Hami navoday ho hami navoday ho hami navoday ho !!
