Students of Kendriya Vidyalaya, Airforce Station, Thane, are feeling jubilant! Their favourite music teacher’s song will be used during the launch of Bal Swachhta Mission in Delhi by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Sachin Pardeshi, 50, had composed a song stressing on the importance of cleanliness in the life of a student. This song has been chosen to be played at the launch on Friday. Pardesi, a music teacher for last twenty years feels this is a life time opportunity for him. He said, “My hard work has paid off. When Modi announced the mission, our principal asked me to compose a song.”
Sushama Misar, principal of the school, said, “It is a moment of pride for our school. Pardeshi had written a song, which talks about the importance of cleanliness in classrooms, school premises, neighbourhoods and playgrounds.”
Pardeshi is at present in Delhi practicing with students of other Kendriya Vidyalaya schools across the country. The programme will be telecast on DD and broadcast on AIR on Children’s Day.
“It is a deserving honour bestowed on him because he is a talented composer and lyricist. He not only trains students in classical vocal and instrumental music but also prepares them for various cultural events across the country,” Misar said.
Many of Pardeshi’s compositions can be found online on YouTube.
