Independence Day Celebrations

Freedom is our very nature as only with freedom can joy,
Generosity and other human values blossom

What if the pilot of a plane feels that he should have enough freedom to fly the plane as per his wish? What if driver of a train takes the freedom to stop the train wherever he wishes to? What if a doctor takes the freedom to treat the patients of only his choice…..freedom does not mean absence of boundation but taking up responsibility………..

These were the inspiring words of respected Jignesh Sir who was addressing the students on the auspicious occasion of Independence Day celebration. At the reopening of the school after RakshaBandhan break students, teachers and hostel staff of Atmiya Vidya Mandir gathered at the administrative building hall to commemorate the national festival on 15 August 2011.

15th August is the day on which students are encouraged to have a feeling of being proud Indian so that their hearts fill up with patriotic fervour and immense love for motherland. The ceremony started with pujan of Thakorji by the esteemed guests who were the trustees and members of school management. Then the sports Captain Abhishek Patel and his group marched in unison, escorting the guests to the decorated arena where the tricolour flag was to be unfurled. Principal of the school Dr. Vijay Patel hoisted the flag and the school choir group with Yogin Patel of VIII B sang the national anthem. Anand Pandya of VIII A was playing popular marching tunes from quite at a distance, created a mesmerizing ambience.

Sharing his views on the occasion, Abhishek Ariwala from X A delivered an enthralling speech .He beautifully explained the need of the hour as youth can be the most contributing mass to bring a constructive change to the nation. It was followed by a heartening speech by respected Jignesh Sir who suggested some practical guidelines to the students to follow on daily basis to set themselves free from negative thoughts and bad habits. The whole programme was very well hosted by Yash Pachchigar of X A and Sahishnu Patel from XI Sci. The programme got over with singing of national anthem and distribution of sweets.
