Jamshedpur: The annual day function of RVS Academy was held today amidst an array of cultural colours that brought out the vibrating essence of exciting regional traditions.
The chief guests on the occasion were former state BJP president Dineshanand Goswami, chairman of the school’s managing committee Binda Singh, secretary Bharat Singh, executive committee member Shakti Singh and school principal Mitali Roy Chowdhury jointly lit the traditional lamp to herald the commencement of the annual day function.
Speaking after the school’s meritorious students were honoured, chief guest Dineshanand Goswami observed, “India’s traditional heritage involves the teacher-student relationship as reflected in the ideals and examples of Chanakya and Eklavya and they underline the Indian values of education that set the tone and texture of teaching-learning process through generations.”
Goswami was effusive in his appreciation of founder and chairman of the managing committee of RVS Academy and RVS College of Engineering and Technology Binda Singh for his dedication to the propagation of education and wished him success in all such endeavors. School principal Mitali Roy Chowdhury presented the annual report.
The floodgates of cultural presentations soon opened letting out gushes of exciting dance, music and dance drama presentations. The primary section students through their presentation of dance and songs of the various regions underlined yet once again the uniqueness of a country whose unity lay in her diversity. Chhou dance was an exhibition of the colourful traditions of Jharkhand.
The dance drama, ‘Shakuntala,’ based on the immortal creation of legendry poet Kalidas, “Abhigyan Shakuntal,” was one of the toppings in the cake of entertainment. Other equally engrossing dance items included traditional forms of Rajasthan, Bamboo Dance of Mizoram and of course, the boisterous Bhangra of Punjab.
The vote of thanks was offered by teacher Anjana.
