The special assembly marking the 70 th Independence Day was an event to look out for. The campus was reverberating with the independence flavor and the feeling of patriotism was all around. The program began with a beautiful song presented by the School Choir. As they sung the iconic song celebrating and acknowledging the brave warriors of our motherland “Ae mere watan ke logon”, each one present in the auditorium could feel the elated sense of their responsibilities towards their country.
The senior students presented a skit on the brave son of India- Shahed Bhagat Singh and his contribution in bringing freedom to India. They enacted various scenes like Kakori Train loot, Bombing of the assembly and his hanging which was indeed a thought provoking act. Shaheed Bhagat Singh was a great freedom fighter and the students applauded his efforts.
Through a dialogue, students also urged the society to break free from the shackles of corruption, violence, atrocities and harassment on women and be on a path of equality, respect for women, righteousness and harmony. The young boys in their strong speech expressed that patriotism is not about short outbursts of emotion but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime.
A mesmerizing dance performance enthralled the audience bringing a smile on every ones faces. Celebrating the different cultures, colors, traditions and diversities of the country, the dance was a beautiful amalgamation of lyrics, rhythm and music.
Principal Dr Amrita Vohra in her address shared with the students the values exhibited by our leaders. She spoke about how all great leaders of the world were achievers because of the set of ethics and values they had. She sensitized the students about the sacrifice made by soldiers on the frontiers who stand there guarding our motherland facing a bullet to ensure that we have a safe and peaceful sleep. She also told the students to be responsible with their freedom and respect the fact that we are living in a free India.
