Gandhi and Shastri Jayanti

Gandhi Jayanti and Shastri Jayanti were celebrated in the Vidyalaya with the floral tribute in the portrait of Gandhiji and Shastriji by the principal of the Vidyalaya at the same time mangalacharan was chanted on 2nd October, 2019. A beautiful song ‘Raghupati Raghav Raja Ram' was presented by a group of students from class V with the help of Smt  Mrinali Borthakur (Music Teacher). The informative as well as inspiring speech by Sri Aswini koiri, a teacher of the Vidyalaya mesmerized the crowd. He spoke about Gandhi's incessant struggle to drive away the British from India like Krishna fought against Kangsha. He also spoke about the life history of Lal Bahadur Shastri. In his speech he informed Shastriji's journey as cabinet minister, as a Prime Minister (though for a short time), handling clash against Pakistan and Chaina during this time etc.
Patriotic Song plays a vital role in any occasion to create the atmosphere of patriotism. Hence the song `Hum hain bande Bharat k...` perfomed  by class V students really brought the patriotic feeling among the crowd. On these two  special occasions  Principal of the Vidyalaya welcomed  three officials (including one  Executive Officer) of the Umrangso Town Committee. He also spoke about a few historical movements like ‘Non cooperation movement’, ‘Civil disobedience’, ‘Quit India movement’ etc. led by Gandhiji. He threw some light on 'Swaccha Bharat ..Sustha Bharat’, importance of cleanliness. One of the most important part of his speech is the 'oath taking' by one and  all present there. The oath was about teaching others by the students those who are not able to read and write.
A patriotic song was performed thereby by class VI students guided by Smt Suma Das.
A team from Umrangso Town committee presented  a PPT on 'Solid Waste Management' in view to fullfil the mission of ‘Swachhata Hi Seva’ which was initiated by government of India from Rajghat New Delhi on 2nd October, 2014. 
Lastly with the vote of thanks by Primary in charge Sri R. K. Tiwary the programme ended.
