CELEBRATING OUR HEROES
CELEBRATING OUR HEROES : LASTING GRATITUDE FOR OUR VETERANS
This Independence Day, we decided to do more than sing the praises of the bravery and patriotism that our freedom fighters and veterans have embodied in the past. We took this opportunity to re-evaluate how we are treating our veterans in the present and invited a veteran of 1965 and 71 war and a daughter of a Gandhian follower who is busy in spreading the message of charkha in her Gandhi Ashram. Caring for our veterans is the duty of a grateful nation. The school tried to live up to this duty.
Remembering took place in many forms: Patriotic song ,patriotic dance, Flag hoisting ceremony, poetry, private reflection, Questionnaire session with students and shared memories from the Veteran COL SEGONE . The school took this initiative to remember these people, along with the Veteran .
GOSPEL OF CHARKHA : WEAVING THE THREADS OF INDEPENDENCE
Dr Sita Bimbra the Gandhian speaker gave the Message Of The Charkha. She explained the history and the Gandhian concept of the charkha, a symbol of self-entrepreneurship, which alone can help the nation protect its bio-diversity and provide sustenance to the poorest of the poor.
Today, when everything is creating disillusionment, people are being drawn to violence. Only Gandhian thoughts can equip the present and the future generations to deal with it without committing violence on themselves.
In the end Dr Bimbra gave Charkha Tips on How to Spin Cotton on Mahatma Gandhi’s Spinning Wheel. The school proposes to introduce spinning classes in the SUPW period.
In the end as rightly said by Dr Abdul Kalam “We will be remembered only if we give to our younger generation a prosperous and safe India, resulting out of economic prosperity coupled with civilizational heritage”.
By taking the above mentioned steps within the curriculum the school hopes to fulfill his dream through the students.
