Republic Day Celebration
तुमि विद्या, तुमि धर्म तुमि हृदि, तुमि मर्म,\r\nत्वं हि प्राणा: शरीरे, वन्दे मातरम् ||\r\nYou are the embodiment of Knowledge. You are Dharma. You are Love. You are the Essence. You are the life force in the body. I bow down to thee, mother.\r\nOur beloved Bankim Chandra ji salutes our motherland by singing praises to her and why not; India has raised such heroes who have protected her by sacrificing their lives. This year when we had Republic Day and Saraswati Puja on the same day, we couldn’t be happier as we got an opportunity to worship both the “Shakti’s” in one form. The goddess of wisdom is an embodiment of knowledge and shows the path of dharma, only if one truly acquires knowledge in its truest and purest forms then hasn’t our country given us the right to education given by our Constitution which paves the way to one religion which is humanity. The spring festival is the festival of love when we celebrate music and poetry, then isn’t the rush of blood in our bodies singing the same song of love to our motherland? Indeed, goddess Saraswati is the essence of “self” as she embodies speech, then isn\'t our country the essence of life in us? And thus, we got the opportunity to bow down to both our motherland and to Goddess Saraswati together which just doubled the celebration. We started with the unfurling of the flag which was accompanied by a dance performance on Saraswati Vandana and a patriotic mashup song along with enchanting shlokas by the students of Prep 2, classes 4,6,7, and 8. The program concluded with a special message from our Academic head.\r\nHere are a few glimpses from the event.
