Raksha Bandhan Assembly 2019 – 20
Raksha Bandhan was celebrated with great joy and fervor, at DPS, Ruby Park, Kolkata on 9th August, 2019 through a Special Assembly in the presence of all the dignitaries, school management, parents, teachers and students. The programme commenced with the lighting of the lamp by our Principal ma’am and other guests accompanied by a beautiful rendition of the Ganesh Vandana and a welcome song by the school choir which was followed by Principal ma’am’s inspiring words. Next was an enthralling presentation of a vignette from the pages of the Indian history, “Bond of Love” bringing to fore the story of a sibling bond beyond the communal boundaries, a story of Humayun and Rani Karnavati of Chittor. The breaking of communal shackles through love was also portrayed in the Bengali skit where the students presented a ‘shruti natak’ recollecting the times of Indian Independence. The Hindi Skit, ‘Sneh Ka Dhaga’ on the other hand was an innocent presentation of the unconditional love of a sister, who can even let go off her most prized possession to make her brother happy. No celebration can be deemed complete until the tiny tots of class 2 and 4 amaze us with their well co – ordinated dancing skills as they did with two vibrant dance performances. Each and every act put up by the students not only exemplified the continuous efforts of the students and the teachers but also upheld how beautifully the little ones presented the manifold colours of Indian culture and traditions. The programme came to an end with a vote of thanks and the National Anthem.
