“Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from indomitable will.” The students of Navsrijan learnt the true meaning of the above quote by celebrating a very special day .
A day to celebrate the value of two very special freedom fighters, who are the reason behind the freedom of our Nation. 2nd October is observed as the birth anniversary of Lal Bahadur Shastri and Mohan Das Karamchand Gandhi or Mahatma Gandhi . “Mahatma Gandhi” was a sobriquet that he had earned himself as a freedom fighter.
The occasion was celebrated across Navsrijan. Multiple events like poem writing, story writing and artwork were held. Class discussion was also held in each class to inculcate the value of leadership, simplicity and integrity in students. A quiz based on their lives was conducted throughout the middle and senior school. In the middle school the first prize was bagged by Diya Bhandari of Class 5, Saurabh of Class 6 and Jhanvi Singh of Class 7B. Second prize holder was Riya Bhandari of Class 7B and the third prize was given to Kavya Saxena, Piyush Kumar, Sakshi and Neeraj of Class 7B. In the senior school Anushka Pal of Class 10, Ankush of Class 9 and Lakshmi Modi of Class 10 bagged the first, second and third position respectively.
The students were well aware that celebrating their Jayanti gives us a way to look back into the freedom struggle and value our freedom and equality. The students thoroughly enjoyed these activities with full enthusiasm and their spirit was indomitable.
