15th August – Independence Day Celebration – 2011

Independence Day is a day when we remember that significant impact on Indian history which had given a shape to our present progress, so far. It is not only a day to remember our country’s past but also a day when the spirit of shaking and breaking the chains of slavery, bondage and anything we cling to are invoked and awakened.

The program starts with the hoisting of flag by Ved Prakash Chiripal Ji followed by the song “Jhanda Uncha Rahe Hamara” & National Anthem.

More colors were added by the students of Shanti Asiatic School when they have performed on the popular dance numbers like “Rang de Basanti” and “Unche Himalaya Se”. The spirit of freedom and universal brotherhood soars high with another musical performance sang by the students - “Hum Sab Bharatiye Hai”.

Few speeches by the students of SAS [Prerna Chauhan] and SCS [Pranav Karnavat] were revolving around the meaning and essence of freedom. How the freedom has been misinterpreted by the common people and what can be done to improve the conditions in our country.

After that few insights were shared by the Shri Brij Mohan Ji , and the director of SBS Prof. Bala Bhaskaran. They spoke about the significance of freedom for an individual and masses and how freedom is closely interconnected with the responsibility.

The program ends with the distribution of sweets.
