The incredible tale of India’s triumph and tragedy was depicted through a series of captivating performing Arts and thought-provoking speeches.

The Programme commenced with an alluring  jugalbandi of dances. The medley of Desi and Classical dances-'Indiancers' was a fitting tribute to the rich cultural diversity that defines our great nation.

A heart-touching mashup of timeless patriotic songs  unified  the melodious voices of 13 vocalists who mesmerised the audience with the soul stirring lyrics in both Tamil and Hindi. The Musical sojourn continued as the Male singers presented 'Yeh Desh Meri Jaan' and filled the aura with both emotion and devotion.

If Std. III and IV were the Show- stealers then the Nursery, LKG and UKG were the Show- stoppers. Vibrant Collage work, Colouring and Thumb printing with the three colours from the nimble yet deft hands adorned the Sides of the stage and won the appreciation of everyone.

'India of My Choice- Liberated, Empowered or Calibrated' set the stage for deliberations by  eloquent speakers from Std. IX - XII. The Talk Show witnessed the orators share their vision of India - a nation to reckon 'Now and in the years to come'.

Glimpses of Futuristic India, Her Leadership in the Global Front and Presidency in the G20 Summit where our nation takes center stage  highlighted  India's growing influence and its potential to shape a better world.

The Cultural Programme concluded with an energetic performance on 'Ennadhu India'. The Human Pyramid, the fluttering Tricolour and the stunts spoke volumes for the national pride every young Indian resonates in the nooks and crannies of the country.

The students went on a rally with slogans and clarion calls to free our nation of all social evils, stay united and uphold the values written in the Preamble.
