Bhavanites mark International Women’s Day
March 10, 2018, 12:28 pm

The boys of Grades 10 and 12 of Indian Educational School (IES Bhavans) celebrated International Women’s Day to everyone’s appreciation. The boys gave a standing ovation to their fairer counterparts and their female teachers as they were ushered to the auditorium from the classrooms and staffrooms. The girl students, and female teachers clad in pink proclaimed solidarity and were given stems of pink roses by the boys as a fond tribute to womankind.

An exclusive entertainment program was organised by the boys that included music, dance, and drama. A touching song ‘Tujhe sab kuch pata hain na ma’ from a Bollywood movie was rendered by Jubin of grade 10 while a skit by Kisara W Batugedara (grade 12) and team was indeed an eye-opener. The theme of the skit dealt with gender discrimination prevalent in many parts of the world even today and the powerful intellect that many women possess. A video presentation by the boys of grade 12 on the importance of expunging gender discrimination was indeed a request to the world to accept and acknowledge the intellect of women without which the development and progress of a nation will remain ineffective.

A scintillating western dance by Nikhil Shinde (grade 12) and team also invoked applause. A quiz on ‘the greatest Indian women’ whose contribution made a difference piqued the interest of the audience. The great gesture of elevating Mrs. Renuka, one of the senior support staff to the level of a great Indian woman reminiscing her services to the student community left many an eye moist.

Suresh V Balakrishnan, the vice principal, Middle and Senior Wings felicitated the two great women of Bhavans – Lalitha Premkumar, the vice principal, KG and primary wings, and Meenakshi Nayyar, the vice principal, CCA for their amazing contributions to the growth of the institution as trainers, motivators, educators, teacher-trainers, and what not!

Mrs. Lalitha Premkumar and Mrs. Meenakshi Nayyar were presented handwoven golden shawls as a mark of respect. Their spouses who stood by them through thick and thin and motivated them to accomplish their life goals were invited onstage to present the golden shawls. Lalitha Premkumar was honored with the golden shawl by her husband Mr. Premkumar, the principal, IES - one of the most successful principals of the Middle East region. Meenakshi Nayyar was honored with the golden shawl by her husband Dilip Nayyar amid thunderous applause from the audience.

Mr. Premkumar thanked the organizers for their thoughtful gesture. He exhorted the girl students to aim for the stars and nothing less as they are capable of being the best in their chosen fields and have proved it time and again. Alana Prakash, the deputy head girl, IES proposed the vote of thanks and that concluded the most memorable International Women’s Day Celebrations at IES Kuwait.
