The Indian Community School Kuwait (ICSK) Khaitan ended their week-long Republic Day celebrations with an exciting ceremony on 25 January. The day was celebrated with pride and patriotic fervor which was evident in the way some children dressed up as distinguished freedom fighters. The Indian flag was hoisted by the Principal K. G. Shirsath, who gave a special message to a campus full of students dressed up in the colours of the Indian flag. Later, the students sang patriotic songs.
Charts had been put up that outlined the efforts of the freedom fighters in making India a Republic and the hardwork and dedication of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar in drafting the Indian Constitution which is the largest written Constitution in the world.
Although India became a free nation from the British rule on 15 August, 1947, the true spirit of Independence permeated through every Indian and could be felt only from 26 January, 1950 as the constitution was implemented from this day.
There were special assemblies at all levels of the school to encourage students to celebrate true patriotism. The culmination of the celebrations was marked by a distribution of chocolates to all and the singing of ‘Vande Mataram’ at the end of the day.
