The learners of grade IV Nalanda and grade V Newton celebrated ‘Eid and Independence Day Special Assembly’ on 14th August, 2019. The event began with an inspirational poetry, saluting the spirit of national integration. An ideal image of unity in diversity was projected by the children who came dressed up in the regional dresses of different states. An atmosphere of patriotic fervour and national pride was instilled in the hearts of the audience, by a melodic mash up of patriotic songs, played by the orchestra group. Each note of the instrumental music resonated with the aspirations of our founding fathers. Along with the instrumental performance, a live sketch of the father of the nation, Mahatma Gandhi, was made by a talented student, which was an added feather for the act. This was followed up by an ode paid to the most celebrated poet of all times, Nobel Laureate, Shri Rabindranath Tagore. His famous poem, 'Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high' was recited by the choir group, through an emotional and soulful song.
