The assembly was recognition of Gandhiji’s contribution towards the freedom struggle. Donning tri-coloured sashes and head bands, the students looked every bit the part of crusaders of change.
The assembly included:
• Trivia and facts about our National Flag
• Great personalities through the years, from different walks of life, taking a bow as they were introduced crisply by speakers
• Song …’Rise India Rise’ with a strong patriotic flavour
• Dance …’ Give me Freedom, Give me Fire’ exuding the fragrance of a free nation.
A backdrop of the charkha, Gandhiji, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel and Subhash Chandra Bose, with a poignant quote by Gandhiji…’Be the change you want to see in the world’ further added to the feel of the moment…
Parents were happy and content to see hundred percent participation, and for the students it was a great learning experience.
Ms.Amita Chauhan aptly rounded off the morning by asking students the true meaning of the displayed quote . She stressed the need for each to be an able citizen of the country, to keep the freedom struggle alive in our hearts n appreciate the freedom we so take for granted.
