Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Birth Anniversary – 23 rd January 2021

Special online Assemblies were held across the school to celebrate the ‘Parakram

Diwas’ – 125 th Birth Anniversary of Subhash Chandra Bose.

A special assembly was planned for the students of the Lower Primary Section with an

intent to provide brief information about this great leader whose patriotism was defiant. It

started with sharing of Thought for the Day, as he very much believed that, “Freedom is

not given, it is taken.” Fondly called ‘Netaji’, he was greatly influenced by the teachings

of Swami Vivekananda. He was a model of diversity by region, ethnicity, religion and

even gender. Use of slogans like “Jai Hind” and “Dilli Chalo” inspired many Indians to

strive for freedom. He revived the Indian National Army or the Azad Hind Fauj.

There was a role play performed by Std III students with great energy and enthusiasm so

that this could help other students familiarize and engage themselves. The activity also

enhanced their imagination which in turn helps in fostering their social and emotional


Nisha Kulkarni from Std IV gave an insight into the life and achievements of the great

personality. The students watched a short film to know more about Netaji’s role in India’s

struggle for freedom. After this, as a sign of respect and gratitude Vedika Raundhal recited

a poem which was dedicated to all the freedom fighters who have laid down their lives

and made countless sacrifices for our nation.

After a brief prologue, the students of Std V dedicated time to watch a very enriching

video which enabled them to know and understand the legendary personality and his

contributions to the country. Effective, impactful and motivational words shared by Netaji

during his various interactions. The students paid a musical tribute to the gem of the

nation who will be treasured forever by marching towards patriotism as they tuned in to

the catchy “ Kadam …Kadam …Badhayae Ja …., the regimental quick march of

Netaji’s Azad Hind Fauz , then , and now , the Indian National Army . The event

concluded as the students discussed and shared their perceptions about what national pride

means to them, there by promising themselves to inculcate Netaji’s sense of patriotism,

what our country truly needs in these current times.

Presentation by Std VI included a speech, poems in various languages and videos on the

legacy of Subhas Chandra Bose. A brief description on the early life of Subhas Chandra

Bose was presented by the participant. Students presented the Hindi poem- Khooni


Students of Std VII mentioned some facts on Netaji’s life and a poem recited in Bengali.

The session ended with a beautiful documentary on Netaji’s life followed by the National

Anthem, a flute recital.

The students of Std VIII recited two poems, one in English and the other in Hindi

highlighting the valor and heroism of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose. The event progressed

with a marvelous dramatic mono act in Hindi that depicted a part of a historic moment

from Netaji’s life in the formation of the Azad Hind Sena.

A few unknown facts about Netaji’s life were shared by the students of Std IX. Soham

Kulkarni performed a mono act as Subhas Chandra Bose. This was followed by a short

documentary on the life of Netaji.

Std XI had a Power point presentation by Shreeya Mulye bringing out the major events

of Netaji’s life. The formative years of his life was explained by Kedar Kenjalkar. Videos

of various events like the Haripura Congress session of 1938, Netaji being welcomed in

Singapore, Netaji’s speeches were a part of the PPT which added to the celebration. This

was followed by recitation of the poem ‘Khooni Hastakshar’ written by Shri Gopal Prasad

Vyas, recited by Shreeya Mulye. Posters made by Srujan Purohit and Sujal Gandhi were a

visual treat. The assembly had varied acts such as speech, poetry, special quotes, and a

documentary on Netaji's life with poster presentation.
