We celebrated the “National Unity Day” on 31st October 2020. The celebration commenced by invoking God’s blessings. The essence of the day was highlighted by a meaningful cultural program by the teachers. Sardar Vallababhai Patel, an icon for National Unity was fondly remembered. His vision for the Nation was articulated by the teachers taking a pledge striving towards “Ektha”. Teacher Pavithra spoke of the man Sardar Vallabhai Patel who played a crucial role in the unification of India. The teachers dressed in traditional attire of different States of India did a cultural ramp walk, to spread the message of unity in diversity. Teacher Suma Saji compeered the programme.
