Independence Day celebrations by Bhavan’s Children’s Club

The children of Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Navi Mumbai kendra’s Children’s club were dressed colourfully in flag colours, recited poems and sang patriotic songs in advance celebrations of Independence Day on Saturday August 12 at the kendra premises.
Girls were dressed in tricolour dupattas against white salwar kameezs with ribbons and braids in their hair, on their wrists while boys were in saffron, green or blue with one of the them dressed as an Indian soldier.
The program began as usual with singing Gayatri Mantra. Bhadrasheela Hegde, Director in Human Resources, Thermosonic Pvt Ltd and former teacher at St Mary’s for fourteen years was welcomed with a tricolour garland, a wristband and a flag by one of the youngest members Prisha Barai.
Various poems on national topics were recited in English and Hindi by Mukund Kamath, Aavya Mahajan, Anika Bhat, Arjun Adige, Kiyanshi Thakur, Sumedha Pai, Paarmi Shah, Yessica Doshi, Vivaan Kapoor and others.
The children also sang patriotic songs. Bhadrasheela Hegde, the judge for the occasion, awarded marks to the children based on the choice of the poem or song, the presentation and the dress.
Winners in the poem recitation contest were Anika Bhat first, Arjun Adige second and Vivaan Kapoor third. In the patriotic singing round the prizes went to Sumedha Pai, Paarmi Shah and Mukund Kamath.
A quiz contest was conducted by Mahua Guha, editor of Dimdima magazine with Sudha Kamath dispensing with Independence Day caps and wrist bands to the children and parents who gave the right answers.
Each child had brought a fistful of soil based on the suggestion by Prime Minister Modi on his Mann Ki Baat recently. The soil was collected, and a Tulsi plant was grown. The theme was Unity in Diversity and grow more plants.
Vivaan Kapoor’s mother found the program very interesting and Anika Bhat’s mother said that the parents also had a great time with the kids. “It was exciting to win a prize in the Quiz contest, felt like a child all over again,’ she said.
Dr Gaurav Shah called it an innovative concept.
