Watan ki Ulfat
Meri mitti se bhi
70 years ago on this day, India attained independence through non violent resistance and civil disobedience from the clutches of British Raj. The day is celebrated across India with joy, fervour and a sense of pride and patriotism. Celebrating this day in the school, the function began with flag hoisting by the guest of honour Ms. Sargam Manghnani in the esteemed presence of honourable principal Mrs. Sheela Balamurali and Mr.Jayasankaran (Director accounts and administration).
Following this was a small cultural program wherein the school choir sang a medley in the remembrance of the martyrs.
Throwing light on the significance of independence were Ms. Sharanya (9A) and Ms. Medha (8D). They also spoke about why we need to respect the ideals that our forefathers have set up for us. Ms. Devika (10A) and Master Om (10D) urged the young minds to understand how difficult it was to achieve independence and to learn to value freedom with responsibility.
The audience was spellbound by the graceful dance performance of the Gurukulites which made the function more colourful.
Last but not the least, the day ended with the vote of thanks proposed by Ms.Siri (8D).
