Our 70th Independence day was celebrated with fervour at Walnut School. It started with a crisp march past.

Then, after the traditional flag hoisting ceremony by our local director Mr.Girish Dangat‘s father, Shri. Ramdas (Nana) Dangat, Std. 4 children sang “Hum Kare rashtra aradhan”. This is a Hindi song about how prosperous India was once upon a time, how it went down during the British rule and how we are trying to take the country back to its glory once again.

This was followed by Std. 5 children singing a song in Sanskrit titled “Bhumioriyam Balidanasya”. This is a song in Sanskrit that tells us about how many people sacrificed their lives for our country.

The Std. 6 students then sang a wonderful song – “Udhalit Shatkirana”. This is a song in Marathi that tells us about what the Indians felt on the day they became independent. They felt fearless and full of hope!

They were practicing how to hold the pencil correctly and were working on perfecting their strokes. The students were given poems, which they had to neatly copy.
