Thou art the ruler of the minds of all people,
Dispenser of India’s destiny.
Thy name rouses the hearts of the Punjab,
Sind, Gujarat, and Maratha,
Of the Dravid, and Orissa and Bengal.
It echoes in the hills of Vindhyas and,
Himalayas, mingles in the music of the
Jamuna and the Ganges and is chanted by
the waves of the Indian sea.
The pray for the blessings,
and sing by the praise,
The saving of all people
waits in thy hand.
Thou dispenser of India’s destiny,
Victory, victory, victory to thee.
What a wonderful day it was. Just can’t forget that million dollar smile on the face of every child of Versatile School . It was a joint event by Varanasi Round Table 196 and Varanasi Ladies Circle 129 which is now memorable for all of us because it was our first project after charter and also it cherished memories of our school days.
The day started with flag hoisting by Twinkler Vivaan and Twinkler Revanth followed by National Anthem sung by the children.
It was now time for the drawing competition. We distributed crayons and drawing sheets to 300 students . The competition was divided according to their standards and levels. All the children were geared up and they shared their thoughts about Independence Day on their drawing sheets. Twinkler Aarna and Twinkler Vivaan were also part of this beautiful competition. It was amazing to see the thought process of the young talents. Some of them made flags, tricoloured kite, pigeons, flowers and lots of things.
Cr. tanu, Cr. Parul, Cr. Smita, Cr. Richa, Cr. Shweta Goenka , Cr. Rinki and Cr. Leena collected all the drawing sheets and started checking them. In the meanwhile, Tr. Vinamra, Tr. Siddharth, Tr. Sahil, Tr. Umang, Tr. Umang sah, NHT Anjan , Sql. Anurag distributed goodie bags to all the kids containing sweets, chocolates, biscuits etc.
All the papers were checked and prizes were ready. There was excitement and curiosity in the eyes of kids. The excitement grew when we welcomed yaps (children of tablers or square legs) from Denmark and Germany.
Sql. Prashant Gupta , Piyush Agarwal, Anoop Agarwal and Cr. Preeti with twinkler Pranvi hosted them and then brought them to Versatile School to witness the beautiful morning of freedom.
IPC Tr. Vinamra and Chairperson Cr. Tanushree shared their kind words with the kids and distributed prizes to all the winners. Kids were asked to disperse after that.
We were all exhausted and tired.
Ek chai to banti hai yaar..
Circlers opened their boxes of home- made snacks . There were samosas , idlis, sandwiches, cakes , chips and some cool gup-shup over hot masala chai. That truly reminded us of our school days . Sandwiches were truly in demand and we learnt the recipe from Cr. Parul while sipping our hot cup of tea.
We thanked school management and staff for cooperating with us and left for the freedom drive. Our publicity convener Tr. Sahil and Chairman Tr. Harsh lead the bunch of cars And we drove around the city. The holy city of Varanasi witnessed the freedom drive on the day of Independence
