What a swelling pride fills each Indian’s heart when they hear these lines!! The same emotion was witnessed when the students of The Palace School paid tribute to their motherland on the 66th Independence Day, by putting up a colourful cultural program.
The day commenced with the flag hoisting ceremony. Thereafter what followed can be rightfully be called a treat to the eyes. The students of class III presented a well synchronized instrumental music presentation. The effervescent class II children looked resplendent dressed up as Army, Navy and Air Force personnel. Their smart march reminded us of how grateful we all should be to these real heroes who sacrifice a lot so that we all could lead a safe and secure life.
A lovely dance enactment by class I children left everyone spell bound as the presentation took us to the borders of our country where our soldiers fight for their country. It was a heartfelt tribute to the martyrs who laid down their lives, fighting for the honour of their nation.
Our national symbols, which we tend to forget, in the normal course of our lives were well reminded to us by our young tots who were so beautifully dressed up representing The Emblem, Lotus, Peacock, Hockey player, Tiger and the legends who wrote national anthem and national song.
“ Jahan Daal Daal Par Sone Ki Chidiya Karti Hai Basera….Woh Bharat Desh Hai Mera ….” . This song was presented by Class II children who wore traditional costumes of various Indian States and represented “Unity in Diversity”, the essence of India.
A small skit by class III students brought out the secularism of our nation and the irreplaceable role played by the “Father of the Nation” in laying the foundation of a free and secular India. The finale of the program was a colourful dance presented by the nimble footed students of class II and IV.
A patriotic song competition was held for classes V, VI and VII, that had the audience swaying to the tunes of patriotism.
Winners are as follows: Class VB, VI A and VII B.
The celebrations came to an end but the thought provoking address by our Principal madam certainly paved the way for a new perspective towards Independence and Freedom , for our students. She stressed upon, “Freedom comes with responsibility” and if everyone understood this universal fact then there would be peace all around as.
“Happy Freedom to All !!! ”
