Independence Day 2021

Freedom in the Mind, Faith in the Words, Pride in our Souls

Let’s salute the nation on this auspicious day.

Independence Day was celebrated with great enthusiasm and patriotic fervor on August 12, 2021 to mark the 75th year of freedom from the British rule. The programme started with flag hoisting by the Chief Guest Dr. Vinay Gupta, Civil Surgeon, Faridabad. The Guest of Honour, Dr. Sushil Ahlawat, Mr. Saransh Gupta and Ms. Rachita Gupta from the trust were present for the ceremony. Among other dignitaries present virtually were Mr. Ashok Pratap Singh, Senior Member, Board of Trustees, Modern School, Ms. Mira Pradeep Singh, ChairPerson, The Modern School, Faridabad, Ms. Ambika Pant, Honorary Secretary, Board of Trustees, Modern School, Ms. Abha Sadana, Principal, The Modern School, Kundli and Ms. Priyanka Kharbanda, HM, Modern Early Years, Deepali.

The Principal formally welcomed all the dignitaries and addressed the gathering appealing to their nationalistic spirit and urging them to take pride in being an Indian and fulfilling one’s duty with responsibility.

The Chief Guest commended the sacrifices of the freedom fighters and urged everyone to strive to be worthy of the freedom we got because of those sacrifices. He also reiterated that unless we follow covid appropriate behaviour, we will not be able to survive the third wave of the pandemic.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Ashok Pratap Singh, Senior Member, Board of Trustees emphasized on concept of happiness. He urged the parents and the teachers to support children and ensure that they remain happy. He iterated that real happiness comes with doing things for others selflessly. Referring to the reopening of schools, he remarked that though coming together and being together would generate a lot of happiness, it has to be done very wisely in the current pandemic situation. He lauded the efforts of the teachers who made learning online worthwhile. He congratulated the Principal, staff, students and the parents for doing their best in spite of the odds.

This was followed by a heart wrenching, inspiring dance drama titled “San Sattavan ki Goonj’ that showcased the magnificent life of the brave Rani of Jhansi- Rani Lakshmi Bai. It was an excellent blend of a gamut of human emotions and qualities- bravery, melancholy, exhilaration, patience, pride, patriotism and dedication. It invigorated the audience in the beginning and left them spell bound towards the end. The musical rendition by the school choir awakened everyone’s feelings towards the motherland.

Indeed, it was a day of joy, a day to pledge love and respect towards our country and make it a better place for all to live and experience the freedom, peace and unity in diversity.

Jai Hind!!
