“I am worth it,” is the motto cadets are taught when they first join the Armed Forces. It is also the message the day’s events left the students of Nasr with.


The programme commenced with the student council being invested by Air Commodore R.K. Oberoi- the Chief Guest for the day, and as the students marched proudly to the beat of the drum, the Indian flag was hoisted. The march past was followed by impassioned dance numbers based on the theme “Different Facets of a Woman”. The dances were choreographed and performed by the students, who wove a beautiful story of strength and vulnerability through their movements. The tiny tots of pre-primary also joined the celebrations with an action song expressing their patriotic fervour. Riding this wave of emotion, the band graced us with a rousing musical number. Students who had topped in last year’s ISC exams were invited to collect their gold medals donated by various dignitaries, and merit prizes were bestowed upon star holders. The band and choir also received certificates for their unrelenting enthusiasm and hard work, after which awards were distributed to houses for their respective achievements.


The interactive session held with the lady officers Air Commodore R.K. Oberoi invited with him, was one of the many highlights of the day. The students were given an opportunity to ask them about their trajectory in traditionally patriarchal fields and the requirements of such professions.


The day ended thus, on a jubilant note having celebrated the sacrifice of our freedom fighters and the students’ accomplishments.
