On its very first day of the celebration, the Chief guest of the programme, Chandan Kumar Sinha (SP Palamau) urges the students to take a pride and work for betterment of the society at large.
“Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav is based on five themes – Freedom, Ideas, Resolve, Actions and Achievements. Under the ‘Freedom’ theme, the government has focused on bringing out stories of unsung heroes who made sacrifices in India’s freedom struggle”.
The ‘Ideas’ theme ‘focuses on programmes and events inspired by ideas and ideals that have shaped the country and will guide India as the nation navigates through the ‘period of Amrit Kaal’, the next 25 years towards the 100th anniversary of India’s independence.
The students of B.Ed. college presented multi-cultural dances, folk songs for which they were also awarded by the guest on this occasion. The first prize as a cash award of five thousand rupees were given to the group who performed folk dance, while Shweta Pandey was awarded for her drama on the theme of ‘Jhanshi Ki Rani’. Mukesh Vishwakarma gets accoladed for his song by the guest. The administration also honoured Makshima Tirki for conducting throughout the functions.
“Some of the events organized under this theme include – Birsa Munda Jayanti, Shaheed Diwas, Declaration of Provisional Government of Free India by Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, besides others. The much celebrated, and, to an extent, politicized Har Ghar Tiranga campaign is also being carried out under this theme of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav”.
While addressing the gathering, Shyam Kishore Singh, the Chairman of the college applauded and ask them to play constructive role in society for its furtherance.
