The traditional ritual of taking attendance to mark the presence and absence of people has been replaced and transmuted to practicing Oops. This is a simple fun way of noting the presence of children and teachers.
Children and teachers sit in a circle. A lit lamp is placed in the middle. A rhythmic chanting is initiated by a teacher/ child. Every name is mentioned in a sing-song and fun way while touching each finger tip of the left with the right. This engages the etheric forces (life forces) in a personal manner.
