Independence day Celebrations
The embarkment of the 74th year of Independence was celebrated by Presidency School Bangalore East on 15th of August, 2020, on a virtual platform, yet, with utmost ardent fervour. The remarkable day, as an attempt to fabricate and revive the essence of freedom was revered and rejoiced exuberantly.
On Independence Day the program commenced with the ceremonious hoisting of the Tricolour by the Guest of Honour Dr. G. Thangadurai,
followed by the chanting of the National Anthem, and the Welcome Speech by the School Captain. A plethora of cultural events pulsated thereafter. The patriotic rendition of the NCERT song, the mesmerising moves of the
Bhartnatyam, the vehement appeal of the ‘Sangolli Rayanna’ mono act by Mr. Kaladhara Bhatt, and Mr. Shivappa’s ‘Gandhi on canavas’ oozed in every ounce the heartfelt devotion and euphoria.
The Principal’s address, an ardent gratitude to frontline warriors, also glorified the unsung heroes of the pandemic-the teachers, for vigorously fighting against the oddities of the challenging times to keep the students engaged and mentally strong during the pandemic. His discourse was a guide to emancipating oneself to self-reliance by taking small steps into becoming amazing independent citizens.
The program, culminated with the Vote of Thanks delivered by the School Vice-captain and left the audience soaked in the unified diversity of their own cultural fragrance, and an urge to awaken the self to build our own ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’.
