SIS Memorializes 71st Indian Independence

Wednesday, August 16, 2017

Bhavan’s Smart Indian School commemorated the red letter day of India’s history in this second mother land of Indians, in its school premises on Tuesday, 15th August with great zest and zeal.

Festooned with the tricolors in and around the campus the day began with the prestigious flag hoisting ceremony coupled with the reminder to the supreme sacrifice of the martyrs who made the calling of “Free India” possible. The student council saluted the day’s auspicious moment by marching out in procession with a rhythmic thunder bang’s accompaniment by alluding to the resonating symbolization of triumph over the shackles of slavery. The unfurling of the flag by the Principal displayed its maestoso pride in India’s liberation.

The revered day was marked significant when the patriotic songs, recitations, thematic skits, quizzes and a street play and dances by the students and staff echoed the auditorium while mesmerizing the audience. The amazing skit by the students of grade 5 showcased the pride in India’s liberation. Reviewing the patriotic ties towards our homeland - India, the Principal Mr. Mahesh Iyer emphasized on the enormous privileges that each Indian experiences at the cost of the persecution that our forefathers underwent under the colonial regime. The Principal’s speech also re-echoed the gist of the Indian President Ram Nath Kovind’s address in India that marked the day of celebration. The highlight of the program was the scintillating song in Hindi (Hindustan Hamara Hai meaning ‘India is our country’ ) sung in one accord evoked emotions in the hearts of all and paved way for the true meaning. He also stressed on the contribution that the expatriate community must render to Kuwait in order to strengthen their bilateral ties for many more years to come. The colourful commemoration thus had its conclusion with the distribution of sweets.
