Jamshedpur, Nov. 27: November 25 has become a landmark in the history of Narbheram Hansraj English School (NHES). Last year on 25th November the school celebrated the Centenary year of Narbheram Hansraj Kamani’s coming to Jamshedpur.
On his 123rd birth anniversary last year, school paid homage to the great visionary who was instrumental in setting up the Narbheram Group of Institutions, including the businesses, industries, schools, etc. Nakul D. Kamani, the President of the Narbheram Hansraj English School Society, unveiled a bust of Narbheram Hansraj Kamani in the school premises in the morning.
This year too, the students of NHES celebrated Founder’s Day with great enthusiasm.
The function was graced by Nakul D. Kamani, the President of the school Managing Committee, Mrs. Varsha Gandhi, Honorary Secretary, other members of the committee and distinguished guests.
The function commenced with the lighting of the ceremonial lamp with the accompaniment of Shloka recitation by the students. This was followed by Devi Vandana, a dance performance on the theme of ‘Good Triumphing over Evil’.
The skit ‘A Girl Who Hated Books’ was performed by the students of Std 4C focussed on how a little girl developed love for books.
The skit ‘A Doctor’s Journal Entry for August 6, 1945’ was staged with a strong message against warfare.
After the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in the II World War, people realized the futility of war. But even today wars occur across the world. The students through their sombre enactment raised their voices against this senseless devastation that leads to the suffering of thousands of people.
After this Nakul D. Kamani, President of the School Managing Committee, addressed the gathering and encouraged the students with his inspiring words.
Today’s youth faces the world with strong determination and high aspiration. This seemed to have percolated down to the little ones. The students of U.kg. A recited the poem ‘My School Promise’ which expressed their determination to study and do well in the examinations.
Std 2 D recited the poem ‘Home and Love’ expressing the sentiment that there is no place like home.
All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. This message was conveyed through the poem ‘Examination’ which was recited by the students of 3 D.
The next poem, ‘Pigeons at the Taj’ by Std 4D was a salute to those brave hearts who gave up their lives fighting against the terrorists in the 26/11 attack in 2008.
The spectacular dance performed to the tune of ‘Raghupati Raghav……’ was also a tribute to those soldiers who gave up their lives fighting terrorists.
The students sang the song ‘Blowing in The Wind’ as a tribute to Bob Dylan who won the Nobel Prize for literature this year. This was followed by the evergreen song ‘Que Sera’. The programme ended with the band performance.
