Bhavans Kuwait Celebrated Decadal Annual Day
Sunday, February 12, 2017
The normally humble and insignificant day of February 9, 2017 was elated to the elite club of days with immeasurable importance as Bhavans Kuwait celebrated its decennial annual day on this Thursday in such a manner that every pulsating moment of the day will drum across the cerebrums of the blessed few who were taken back and forth in time and space to know the purpose of life by experiencing ‘CHANGE’, the providential LAW of the cosmos.
The 10th annual day, themed ‘CHANGE’ was honored by the gracious presence of Mr. Rishiraj Singh IPS, the Excise Commissioner (DGP) in the state of Kerala, India, a much feared name for the organized crime syndicate in India. Mr. Singh was given a proud and state of the art guard of honour by the BSS (Bhavans Servce Scheme) cadets. The other dignitaries present were Mr. Ali Jediyan Al Rashidi, the sponsor and owner of Indian Educational School and Smart Indian School Kuwait, Mr. N.K.Ramachandran Menon, the Chairman, Bhavans Middle East, his better half, Mrs. Sudha Ramachandran, Mr. Krishnadas Menon, Director IES, Mr. T.Premkumar, the Principal, Indian Educational School Kuwait and Mr. Mahesh Iyer, the Principal, Smart Indian School (SIS), Kuwait.
The cosmic rays of change engulfed the school premises as the day of celebration started with soul-soothing verses from the Holy Quran followed by the Kuwait National Anthem. The day of magnificence unfurled with the prayer song rendered by the school choir. The ceremonial lamp was then conjointly lit by the Chief Guest Mr. Rishiraj Singh IPS (DGP), Mr. Ali Jediyan Al Rashidi, Mr. N.K. Ramachandran Menon, Mrs. Sudha Ramachandran, Mr. Kirshnadas Menon, Mr. T. Premkumar and Mr. Mahesh Iyer.
An invocation dance of classical fusion performed by the talented Bhavanites was the harbinger of the cultural fiesta of the evening. The audience could feel the heavenly touch as they swayed and reeled in a devotional trance.
The blessed gathering of the chosen few was welcomed by Master Aditya Jaypal, the Head Boy, Indian Educational School, Kuwait. The floral bouquets of love, respect and appreciation were extended to the guests and special invitees by the school supreme council members.
The school annual report written in the blood and sweat of the members of the Bhavan Fraternity voicing the hard work, success, and jubilation, with all the feelings and emotions that one could find if they ever walked through the labyrinth of human mind was presented by Mr. T. Premkumar, the principal, IES, Kuwait. The annual report of the Bhavan’s Smart Indian School was presented in the form of a newscast by Master Andrew Joseph Rodrigues and Miss Caren Ann Suresh, Master Jeffrey Induwara Withanachchi and Master Sambhav Nath Jain of SIS in a very novel and an innovative way.
It was then, it started, the visual incarnation of the cosmic law, the CHANGE. The school premises transformed into the void of a black hole through which every single being was taken for a ride to a parallel universe to witness the horrid state of our own self, governed by the vices, plummets to extinction on our dear planet Earth. More than 300 versatile Bhavanites from the primary, middle, and the senior wings of IES as well as their counterparts from Smart Indian School, Kuwait drew a legendry story onstage which depicted the extinction of mankind due to their unquenchable greed which led them to sign a deed with devil who plotted and brought their doom.
But, the ever-benevolent, the ever-forgiving ‘Supreme Mighty’ made them sign the deed of the divine, the ‘CHANGE’ and resurrected them; to live to love, to rule, to serve and to adapt to CHANGE. The audience gave a standing ovation when the curtains were drawn on the cultural extravaganza ‘Change’ so as to acknowledge their awe and admiration. The spectacular pageantry was conceptualized, directed and choreographed by Ms. Muneera, the HoD English (Primary Section), Ms. Jaemi, HoD English (Middle and Senior Sections) and Mr. EP Prasad (PGT English) and Rythmsacpes, the cultural wing of Bhavan, Kuwait respectively.
After the roller coaster ride in time and space, the chief guest, Mr. Rishiraj Singh IPS (DGP) addressed the audience. He appreciated the chosen theme of the annual day and congratulated the performers for their brilliance. In his speech, he emphasized the importance of the roles of teachers and parents in the lives of children, and highlighted the increase in the cases of drug abuse among the new generation, and discussed how we can save ourselves and the generations to come from the impending doom with mutual respect, care and love. He urged the parent community to make it a point to talk to their most prized possessions so that they won’t go astray, and then seek refuge in the decadent dungeons of confusion. Mr. Singh was presented a memento and a painting by Mr. N.K. Ramachandran Menon, the Chairman, Bhavans Middle East as tokens of Bhavan’s gratitude to the well-regarded IPS officer.
The speech culminated in opening many eyes. The prize distribution witnessed the proud display of Bhavan’s whiz-kids and the child prodigies onstage to receive the prizes of excellence and accomplishment. Soon after, time brought another moment of glory as ‘Tejas’, the school magazine. The churning furnace of creativity was released by the chief guest in the presence of Mr. N.K. Ramachandran Menon, the Chairman, Bhavans Middle East, Mrs. Sudha Ramachandran, Mr. T. Premkumar, the Principal, IES, Mr. Mahesh Iyer, the Principal, SIS, and the members of the editorial board, Mr. Sriee Ashwathaman, Mr. Jayashankar and Master Aswin Kumar the Student Editor.
The day of infinite change ended with the vote of thanks proposed by Evelyn Biju George, the Head Girl, IES Kuwait. The emcees for the day were Miss Mokhinur Tinchlikova, Miss Elizabeth Gigi, Miss Rashmi Ajai Kumar, and Miss Snigdha Anil Kumar. Thus, a day with a humble origin was canonized by the holy grail of change and will be heading with a mission to change the world of vices to a world of love, peace and harmony.
