Ryan International School, Gurugram, celebrates National Voter’s Day
Ryan International School, Sohna Road, Gurugram celebrated the 11th National Voter’s Day (NVD) with great gusto. The day began with the Lord’s prayers and Bible reading. On that occasion, all teachers took pledge to cast their vote.
The NVD is celebrated all over the country every year since 2011 to mark the Foundation Day of Election Commission of India, which was established on January 25, 1950.
The main purpose behind celebrating the NVD is to encourage, facilitate and maximise the enrolment, especially for the new voters. This day is celebrated to spread awareness among the voters for promoting informed participation in the electoral process. We as a democracy elect our leader as per our choices. It is ,one of the most vital privileges we have got. Voting is one of the basic rights that every person exercises the attainment of an age of 18 years. But nowadays this right is not exercised by many people. The reason is the lack of interest in political activities being conducted throughout the country. People usually ignore to vote and consider the day as a mere holiday. If all the candidates contesting for the elections aren’t of their choices, they press the NOTA button.
To spread awareness, the government of India decided to spread awareness on this day. The main motto of celebrating the NVD was to spread the awareness among the youths and encourage them to participate in the development of the country. School principal Peeya Sharma urged the young learners to be the real role model.
The principal motivated and guided the young voters to cast their votes consciously and use their power to form a good government.
SDPS, East Punjabi Bagh, conducts dance drama
SD Public School (SDPS), East Punjabi Bagh, conducted a dance drama wherein the students of Classes 6 and 8 mesmerised the viewers with their performances. This school is the place where its chairman Dayal Chand Garg, manager Gopal Krishan Gupta and principal Dr. Umesh Kumar Chhikara teach the lessons of life to the young students and guide them on the path of righteousness.
The students beautifully presented the bounty of nature, the anger of Mother Earth and the silence after the havoc. The students showed that the five inseparable elements can help a man flourish and at the same time they can be destructive..
The fire dance, symbolic of fearlessness and peace, was the highlight of the day. It has been rightly said in the Bhagwat Gita that the ignorance, arrogance and obstinacy of certain individuals have been at the root of the tragedies of history. Thus, Panchmahabhuta was symbolic of peace and tranquillity on one hand and death and destruction on the other.
