“Sarfaroshi ki tamanna aaj hamare dil mein hai””
Dekhna hai zor kitna bazuai-katil mein hai”. —These lines of Bismil Azimabadi reverberated the grounds of Seth M.R. Jaipuria School on 15th August, 2107.The 70th Independence Day of our nation was celebrated with great fervor and zeal. The Principal Mrs. Promini Chopra hoisted the National flag which was followed by the National Anthem. The magnificent display of marching squads by the four houses, smartly dressed in school uniform,marched on the tune of Saare jahan se accha…………. being played by the school band, passed the saluting base, saluted the National flag………a symbol of unity. The presence of parents, teachers and students brought in the spirit of Independence who took a Pledge for seeking God’s blessings to give our countrymen peace and prosperity,to be worthy citizens and to be proud of our varied heritage.The Principal, in her address said, ” a period of misfortune, the rule of the British has ended to give a beginning to a new era where we have to bring in a change…..a change which should lead us to perfection. Ma’am Principal reminded the gathering that we feel more about our rights and less towards our duties and responsibilities . This is the time when we have to come out of our narrow thoughts of fragment ism, regionalism, communal ism and fulfill the dreams of our leaders for a united India.”
“Jo aag jala de bharat ki unchayee,
Woh aag na jalne dena mere bhai.
Tu purabh ka ho ya paschim ka waasi
Tere dil mein ho kaaba ya ho kaashi
Tu sansari ho chahe sanyasi
Tu chahe kuch bhi ho par bhool nahin
Tu sabh kuch peeche pahle bharatwaasi”………….By Ramnath Awasthi
With these words, the Independence Day programme was a show of zealousness where patriotic songs, dances and speeches both in Hindi and English, heightened the value of the freedom we have got after the sacrifices of many.
This Independence day we pledged to remember those patriots who gave us our freedom and also salute the martyrs who shed their blood at the borders to secure the security and integrity of our nation………Bharat
Jai Hind !!
