Republic Day is celebrated every year to honour the day and moment when the Constitution of India came into effect. This day also resembles unity, acquiring independence in the real sense, where everyone is equal and important. The 65th Republic Day was celebrated with great pomp at Atmiya Vidya Mandir.
This morning event was graced by Respected Fuvaji, Pujya Suhrad Swamiji, Respected Narendra Bhai, Haresh Sir and Honourable Dr. Vijay Patel. They all were escorted by our sports teacher and Students Council members. After our guests performed Thakorji's Poojan, the programme continued. The chief guests unfolded our tri-coloured flag and there by infused the spirit of nationalism and patriotism at Atmiya Vidya Mandir's campus. The school choir sung the "Zanda Geet", "Vande Mataram" and "National Anthem".
A wide range of activities centred on the theme of nationalism were conducted to instil the spirit of national pride and love for the country. A grand march-past by students of Grade 7, 8 and 9 was witnessed with zeal by everyone. A broad smile could be seen on everyone's face when the excited young kids of classes 1st, 2nd and 3rd presented Mass PT on the beat of beautiful music. The primary students of classes 4th, 5th and 6th added colours to the programme with Hoop Drills. This celebration also included an eye catching dance performed by the students of class 10 on the song of "Satyagraha". The entire school courtyard was echoed with the rhythmic beats of “Satyagrah".
Our honourable chief guest Pujya Fuvaji expressed his gratitude in witnessing the program presented by the students. Though in simple tone, he addressed the essential aspects of students' day to day life. Mukesh sir explained the history and significance of the Republic Day. The guests also acknowledged the student winners from different fields who were awarded on this momentous occasion.
The day’s celebration came to an end by proposing the vote of thanks, where the staff and students of Atmiya Vidya Mandir were thanked for making the day a wonderful success. The event came to an end with the distribution of sweets to all the members of Atmiya Parivar.
