INDEPENDENCE DAY – 2019

Independence Day of India is a National Festival, celebrated every year on 15th of August. It is a day of great significance for the People of India. This year, the 73rd Independence Day was celebrated with National fervour. The Day was dedicated to all the freedom fighters who fought for the Independence of India from the colonial clutches of Foreign Rule.  

The Independence Day celebration was commemorated at our school, in a very special way.

The ceremony started at 8 AM with the Flag hoisting . The National Anthem  expressed the joy of freedom and pride of India. The theme for the Independence Day Celebration was “Patriotism over Nationalism” and was hosted by the students of class XI.

The cultural programme included a medley of cultural events, A Patriotic Qawwali by the  artists of std. VIII highlighted India's freedom movement and the contribution of the Freedom Fighters.

A special multilingual Radio Talk Show 73.8 F.M., presented diverse languages on a single frequency !!

‘Carnatic Melodies’ and ‘Vandemataram’ by the mellifluous voices of Std. XI and XII  mesmerised the audience.

‘Defining Moments’ gave  a glimpse of 5 landmark events that put India on the global chart in the year 2018-2019.

‘Patriotic Flames’ – a fusion of classical, semi- classical and western dance forms lit up the stage in every sense of the word. The flash mob by class X was the icing on the cake.

The celebration concluded with special speeches and tributes made by the alumni who participated in the Celebration at their Alma Mater.

The celebration was indeed a day of Joy, a day to Love and Respect our country and make it a better place to live and experience the Freedom, Peace and Unity in Diversity.
