Ekta Diwas 2021

Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, who was believed to be the Bismarck of modern India, is the architect of independent India by uniting 562 princely states. We celebrated the 145th Birthday of this legend on the 29th of October 2021 with a lot of gusto.

The day began with a special assembly wherein a PPT was shown on the significance of the day, life and times of Sardar Patel and concluded with facts about the Statue of Unity.

A fun quiz was organized for Grade 1 to 5 which saw some enthusiastic participation by the students. Grades 4 and 5 also took a solemn pledge to mark the occasion. Grade 1 students looked resplendent dressed in ethnic attire from various states across the country as they celebrated ‘Ekta Diwas’.

Grade 2 and 3 participated zealously in the Folk dances from various States the lent a patriotic fervor to the day. It was truly heartening to see the support and involvement of the parents without which none of this would have been possible. A shout out to all the parents!

A declamation competition was held for the students of Grades 4 and 5 with the choice of the two topics – ‘India of my dreams’ and ‘Three things I love about living in India’. There were over forty participants in all and it was a joy to see the confidence and conviction with which they participated wholeheartedly to make the show a grand success.

Success is becoming in adulthood what you dreamed of in your childhood, so we do wish for our students to be able to recreate the India of their dreams…..
