75th Independence Day, 2021


“Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high into that heaven of freedom, my father, let my country awake”

The 75th Independence Day was commemorated by the Jhpians across Hyderabad with the virtual platform vibrating and reverberating with awe and veneration for the Freedom fighters on 15th August 2021. The students’ resilient patriotic fervour sought the blessings of the Almighty with a prayer song for bestowing freedom to Indians after a long 200 hundred years’ struggle.

This was followed by the virtual flag hoisting ceremony and the hoisted tricolour showered the petals of freedom. The Vice- Principal, Ms. Kanchana Valli gave a welcome speech reflecting upon the heavy price the freedom fighters paid to severe the shackles of the British rule. She stressed upon the need of the hour for the young and old to contribute a little good through benevolence and compassion for others as constant advancement for Mother India.

Students paid homage to the Freedom Fighters for their selfless sacrifice and struggle to break from the chains of oppression and rule to Freedom and a Democratic India. The students’ efforts were laudable and praiseworthy for the visuals through the PPT on “India – Then and Now” The portrayal of emancipated women through ‘Unsung Female Heroes’ , was followed by the skit on Mahatma Gandhi’s life , an eye opener on the importance of exercising self-control. On the lighter side was the song in Sanskrit depicting the beauty of India and the instrumental music of ‘Raghupati Raghav Raja Ram’ that touched the heart’s core. The patriotic dance was a perfect closure to the celebrations leaving the lyrics and rhythm to strum the heartstrings.

For a prelude to the Independence week, several competitions like fancy–dress, quiz, and declamation, slogan-writing and poster–making were conducted virtually. The air was loaded with suspense and expectation as the prize winners were announced.

The Chairman, Sri A. Murali Mukund, in his address to students, emphasised that this historical legacy has to be constantly fortified by the present generation through dedicated thought and action to remain vibrant and vitalising down the generations to come.

The virtual expression of patriotism portrayed by the students was exceedingly appreciated by the parents as they thanked the Management for the ‘clairvoyance’ into time through their joint efforts.

The programme came to a close with a ‘Vote of Thanks’ given by the student.
