BAISAKHI AND AMBEDKAR JAYANTI CELEBRATION
Bal Bhavan International School organised a special assembly on 12 Apr ‘ 18 and celebrated BAISAKHI and AMBEDKAR JAYANTI with fervour and full enthusiasm .
The call of the Koel,
The Aroma of Ripened wheat,
The Dhol Beats Reverberate in the Air,
The Jovial Spirits Break into a Lively Dance,
It is Baisakhi ! It is Baisakhi !
Baisakhi is one of the most popular festival celebrated all over the India, especially in Punjab, to mark the arrival of the harvest season. The festival of Baisakhi also has tremendous religious significance for the Sikhs as it was on Baisakhi Day in 1699 that Shri Guru Gobind Singh - the revered Tenth Guru of the Sikhs laid the foundation of Khalsa Panth.
Keeping in mind the spirit and the importance of this great day, the celebrations began with a poem in Punjabi language, followed by a speech on Baisakhi, apprising the children of their rich culture and heritage. The purpose was to make the students aware about the historical background, significance and relevance of Baisakhi.
The whole school came alive with a brilliant dance performance, Bhangra and Gidda by the students of class IX . The beats of dhol charged the atmosphere that forced everyone to tap their feet on Bhangra beats.
A tribute was also paid to the father of the Indian Constitution, Dr. B R Ambedkar and a speech was given on the occasion of 127th birth anniversary of Babasaheb Ambedkar which highlighted his quest for an egalitarian society and complete overhaul of the prevailing social structure which is alive and relevant even today.
